Question: Why did Maya give up in the end? I know she was bitten in the leg, but she can still walk around on the other 3 legs?

Answer: She may be able to walk on three legs, but traveling a long distance and keeping up with the other dogs in such extreme circumstances would be too much and would be extremely painful. Also, seal bites often cause a serious bacterial infection which would quickly sicken and incapacitate Maya.
