Beautiful,1 yr old Maui appears to possibly be a mix of Chocolate Lab, German short hair Pointer, Pit Bull.
A lovely spirit, gentle, a timid dog until she knows you. Very shy.
She has the body of a Pointer, tall and lean, the loving eyes of a Pit Bull and the goofy, playfulness of a Lab.
Here are a list of things we feel Maui needs in her new home for Maui to continue to be a happy dog:
1. A female home. She does best with women, men frighten her.
2. A home with another young, playful, medium/large dog to grow old with. Friendly cats would be a bonus!
3. A home were someone is home a lot. She loves the companionship and needs a home with time to continue her socializing/training.
4. An owner able to continue her on the inexpensive medication Buspirone, for her fearfulness.
She loves to play fetch, chew on squeaky toys and play with other dogs. She also likes to snuggle with her human foster parents. She's a very gentle, playful, sweet -but timid dog.
Maui will need a home in the suburbs or country with a 6ft secure wooden fence, and a large yard. She enjoys having playtime in the yard to play and romp with another dog, and to play fetch with her human.
Due to her timid behavior around people, she will need at least one other friendly, YOUNG, playful. medium to large dog to live with and grow up with. Without this, she will NOT be a happy dog, so it is a must.
City life will not work for Maui, she is too nervous for city living. All the cars and people would make her extremely uncomfortable.
Once she knows you, she is the sweetest, cuddly, playful, gentle puppy. At first she is leery of new people and will run. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body, she's just nervous at first and fearful. It will take her a bit of time to become comfortable with her new humans... but once she gains your trust, she will follow you around and be your best friend.
Maui, unfortunately was NOT properly socialized at the crucial weeks of her young life that she needed to be. Because of this, she's a VERY TIMID dog around new people. She's NEVER aggressive, has never attempted to bite, she just shies away from people until she trust them... which will take time and patience.
She's such a sweet dog, she just needs the right home, one that understands how to work with confidence building.
Maui is sweet, gentle, playful and most comfortable with women,once she knows them. If she doesn't know someone, she tries to run away from them. She has never attempted to nip or even grow.... she's just timid. With continued socialization, she's doing better!
She was never abused, she was raised with her mama and siblings, then surrendered to rescue because the owners couldn't afford to alter all the pups and wanted the best for them.
Maui is timid when meeting new people/places so she needs a lot of continued socializing. Having another friendly, well balanced canine sibling will help her overcome this.
She's potty trained and crate trained, and walks pretty well on a leash, UNTIL she sees a stranger, then she becomes fearful. She will greet dogs in a calm and friendly manner, but will air snap at them if they rush her. (fear)
Due to Maui's need for more social training we are looking for a home with plenty of time to devote to continued outings/socialization.
She's not a dog that will do well left home alone for hours. She is energetic, playful and most likely destructive if left home along and gets bored. A daycare would be too much for her.
Maui is crate trained, but LOVES to share the human bed. If her crate is in a bedroom with a human, she is fine crated.
Maui will do best placed in a home with another young, playful, medium/large, well balanced dog, to learn from and grow old with. A dog friendly cat would be a bonus. She tries so hard to get the cats in her foster home to be her friends.
Maui is a sensitive, timid dog by nature that wants nothing more than to please. She loves her humans and is a big cuddle bug, once she trusts. Couch and bed privileges a must, she loves to be close.
She will need a home that understands working with a timid dog. If yelled at, she will shrivel and run from it.

She will need a home with a large, 5-6 foot high fenced yard. She will do best with access to both inside and out, she loves being in the yard playing, but also wants to snuggle on the couch or floor near you.
Maui is adjusting to car rides. She settles in, mainly because she's afraid. She doesn't whine, bark or pace. She will need continued help getting used to car rides.
