She arrived at the Sanctuary in 2014 very thin and sad, along with her companions, Jamaica and Martin. She adapted quickly to the Sanctuary and soon recovered, getting along well with everyone. Maria is very calm, docile, introspective and very stubborn. She lives better with females than males and today she lives with her friend Margarete, with total peace and tranquility that one provides to the other. The two soon became inseparable companions, they do everything together and respect and protect each other.
