Like any doting parents, Nancy and Chris Bransfield are full of praise for their child.
“I love her. She has the cutest face,” says Nancy Bransfield of her daughter, Maya.
“She’s very exuberant. She loves people,” adds her father, Chris Bransfield.
Maya was similarly welcoming to this reporter, immediately rising from her seat to greet him when he arrived at her house to interview her. She then patted him with her paw and licked his hand, in keeping with the gregarious nature of the Labrador-Pitbull mix that she is.
