OUR CURRENT PACK MEMBERS:

Augustus (Gus), 3months, Male      

Status: Available for Adoption!

 

Gus's is our 3 month old terrier mix. He came to us from the good work our friends at Aloha Animal Outreach do on the west side of the island.  Although we don't know much about Gus's dad, his mom weighed 29lbs at her spay appointment, so we suspect he'll be around the same size as an adult . 
Gus is a happy go lucky guy that lives in a foster home with 2 other small dogs that are showing him the ropes.  His foster family reports he is an avid eater and loves to chase and be chased.  

 

Not only is he cute, but he's  smart. He's already learned to sit and wait for his food and house training is almost at 100% (when he does make an inside mistake, it's on the potty pad).  He also is very comfortable with his crate, where he sleeps at night.

 

If you're interested in meeting Gus, please fill out an adoption application here . Remember to ask for him by name!!

 

Samson, 3-5yrs old (M)
 
Status: Available for Adoption!
Meet Samson. If you haven't followed Samson's story through our social media, let us catch you up! We recevied a call back in May from a previous adopter who informed us that a dog was dumped at a dog park in Ewa Beach. This dog was Samson. His previous owners tied him up and left him in poor health conditions. After a lot of medical appointments and pure love from caring humans, this is the happy boy you see before you today. Samson is approximately 5 years old and a Sharpei, pit bull mix. He weighs in at about 62 pounds of pure love. Samson is described by his foster mom as sweet and affectionate but may take a little while to warm up to strangers. He is very active and playful. Ball and tug toys are life for this handsome guy. Samson currently lives with another dog and would do well in a home with another active, playful dog. Cats and younger children are unknown at this time. Samson is receptive to obedience training and sleeps in his crate at night. This guy does need a little extra attention to his skin as he is still healing from multiple skin infections from when we rescued him. Samson is fun, loyal, and his eager to please personality will absolutely steal your heart! If you’d like to meet this handsome guy, fill out an adoption application here .

Dingo,(M)

 

Status: Available for Adoption

Dingo came to HDF as a medical foster to heal from his neuter from the camp of 43 dogs that our pals at Aloha Animal Outreach have been helping. Shortly after being transferred, he became a permanent part of our ohana to find him a furever home! Dingo is 1 yr old and is a terrier mix, weighing in at about 30 lbs. Dingo is a pretty shy and anxious guy at first meeting, but warms up quickly with some calm leadership. This guy is a true sweetheart and ,strangely enough, LOVES TINY HUMANS! Once the big humans have his trust, he is eager to please. He is current on his vaccinations and microchipped. He is house and crate trained and even knows some commands, “sit”, “place” and "crate". Dingo is also very treat motivated! Cats are unknow at this time but we think this guy could do well with another pack member to give him a little bit more confidence. If you’d like to meet Dingo, head to our website and fill out an adoption application here .

Status: Available for Adoption
Hi, I'm Dobby! Dobby came to HDF as a medical foster to heal from his neuter from the camp of 43 dogs that our pals at Aloha Animal Outreach have been helping.

He is current on his vaccinations and microchipped. Dobby lives with children ranging from toddler to older teenage age and does so well with them.

Shrimp, 11 months (M)

 
STATUS: Available for Adoption!
 
Mr. Shrimp got his name from his rescue story.  He came to us as a stray. A good samaritan found him on the side of the road on the north shore, next to a shrimp truck. he'd been hit by a car and needed medical care.  His AMAZING vet tech foster mom stepped up and offered him a place to say.  The accident resulted in the need to amputate his front left leg. He's all recovered now and we're just waiting for his prosthetic leg to arrive (the guy who found him raised money to help him with his injuries :)  
 
Today, Shrimp is a happy, social boy. He's neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped. We expect he'll be about 55lbs at full size. Shrimp is a medium energy boy. He loves the beach. He loves people and he loves other dogs, especially his foster sister (a 50lb pittie), named Melon. If you’d like to meet Shrimp, fill out an adoption application here and let's chat.

Roxy (Ladybug)

 

STATUS:

Healing...but available for Adoption!

Roxy was surrendered from a houseless camp on the west side of the island.  When we first met her, she was malnourished and limping on 3 legs.  A vet visit told us her leg was broken into 3 peices, her tail was also broken, and she had a bacteria in her blood. Boy, this girl has been through it.  
 
Her foster mom is nothing short of a HERO.  She's nursed her through a complicated spay and tail amputation and is getting her ready for a leg amputation.
 
Throughout this entire ordeal, the constant message we hear from foster mom is just how sweet LadyBug is. She's a lower energy girl at 7-9yrs old and we're hopeful that she'll make a full recovery from everything that ailed her.  We're looking for a family to spoil this beautiful soul in way she's deserved her whole life.  Ladybug currently lives with 2 other dogs her size that she adores. She also has taken a liking to stuffed toys that she gathers into her bed. If you're looking for a sweet and gentle companion to spend your time with, Ladybug might be your girl. If you’d like to meet her,  fill out an adoption application here .

Mahina, (F)

STATUS: Available for Adoption!
 
Mahina is a 1 year old Pitbull mix. She weighs about 70lbs.  She's spayed, current on vaccinations and microchipped. She is housetrained and crate trained. 
 
This beautiful girl is medium energy, loves to play, loves tug toys, car rides and walks.  
 
If we're honest, we think Ms. Mahina is a bit bossy. If given the opportunity to run things, she will. We think an ideal home for her has a similar size/similar energy male dog in it. This girl's a tank, so a home free from small children is also preferred.
 
If you’d like to meet Mahina, fill out an adoption application here .
