Meet Mahalo

Mahalo is a big, young, goofy boy who is part canine and part garbage disposal/paper shredder. Leave this guy alone in a room with some paper or open garbage cans, and he will take care of business. What can he say, he likes being useful?

Mahalo is the perfect mix of snuggly and playful. This guy would do great with another dog in the house to play with and help show him the ropes as he continues to grow from a big puppy into a responsible adult. Speaking of the puppy stage, Mahalo is still working on his leash walking skills and would do best in a forever home with a fenced-in yard so that he can take his time learning how to walk politely on a leash.

Crate and potty trained, Mahalo makes a good housemate. That said, if you want to keep them intact, it'll be best to keep your socks and shoes out of reach and have a bone at the ready to provide an easy distraction. Mahalo would love to show off his mad zoomie skills in a fenced-in yard and then settle down with you afterwards for a nice nap.

A home without very small, young kids would be best as Mahalo still has the puppy tendencies of jumping when he gets really excited. So, what do you say? Can you open your home to this sweet, adorably active gent?
