Sili, male

Sili is a 14 week old male who is one of the most confident dogs in the back. He's vocal and a total rascal! He knows his name but chooses to ignore foster mom when he gets into her garden. Sili is an American Pit Bull Terrier so please keep that in mid when applying for him (i.e. breed restrictions, weight restrictions, etc). Sili to run and play for as long as he can. If we had to pick any home for him, it would be with an active family or active individual. Someone who likes to run, hike, go to the beach, etc. Sili already knows sit and other basic commands. Sili is one of Fatu's males puppies. If he's going to be anything like her momma, he'll be just as sweet as her, in his own way. We don't know who dad is but we suspect that this boy will be a solid 60lbs when fully grown. If you're interested in meeting Sili, please complete an adoption application here and ask for him by name!

Sheba, female

Meet Sheba! Sheba is approximately 3-6 years old and the biggest love bug! As you can see from her photo, Sheba is a true beach babe. We know she gets along with other dogs but cats are not Sheba's jam. Hoomans of all shapes and sizes are right up her alley. Sheba has never known what a crate is so crate training is slow but foster mom is working hard on it!Potty training is a breeze for this girl. Sheba walks well on a leash and has been super gentle with little ones who have wanted to meet her. If you're interested in meeting Sheba, please complete an adoption application here and ask for her by name!

Creed, male

Meet Creed! Creed is about one year old brindle pit mix. He’s a wonderful snuggly boy. He sleeps in bed with foster mom every night and sleeps through the night with no accidents (so long as you take him out before bed and right when you get up). He is incredibly smart and a super fast learner. Creed has been with foster mom going on 3 weeks and learned down, off, sit, come, and stay! Creed is currently 40(ish) lbs.
.
.
Creed uses his manors and waits at the door to go out and before he eats. We're thinking his name should really be shadow as he loves to be by his hooman any chance he can get but his separation anxiety is a lot less with another dog in the home so that's something we know Creed needs. Creed also LOVES toys and to no surprise fetch! Daily exercise is needed for Creed, whether that's a run, a mile or two walk, a hike, etc.

If you're interested in meeting Creed, please complete an adoption application here and ask for him by name!

Malie, Female

Meet Malie, a 3-4 year old female Yorkie/schnauzer mix. Malie was saved from a horrendous breeding ring. Foster mom describes her as sweet and LOVES to snuggle! Malie is exactly what her name means, mellow. Although she gets along well with other pets, she prefers to interact with hoomans more. Loves to follow you from room to room and daily bully rubs, napping is considered the napping queen in her current foster home! She will require multiple meet and greets with her future family.
 
Malie needs a calm, quiet environment. Malie would do well with hoomans as she is a loyal companion! Malie likes routine so if you like routines then she's your girl! We don't recommend her being in a home with small children. If you're interested in meeting Malie, please complete an adoption application here and ask for her by name!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dixie, Female

DIXIE'S IN SEARCH OF HER PERFECT HUMANS!
Age: 5 years
Weight: Approximately 52 lbs
Current on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped, housetrained and crate trained. <--- She's got it all!
 
IMPORTANT NOTE: Dixie loves humans of all shapes and sizes but Dixie needs to be the ONLY dog in the home as she is not fond of other animals. Please note that Dixie is a pit bull so we encourage you to check your breed restriction list! Dixie's breed is also known as: American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
 

THE GOOD STUFF:

It doesn't look like in the photos, but Dixie is a pretty energetic girl, so she's looking for someone that's got time and energy to burn with her. She's always down for a walk, a run (be easy - she's a meaty girl), hikes, any water sport, fetch or tug.

This girl is also a lover (for the most part). She absolutely enjoys the company of all humans, big and small. She is affectionate, extremely loving and will do anything for some cuddles. Her previous home had 2 children (8 years old & 8 months old) and she had great manners with both. (They did report the occasional "jump up" from excitement though - a behavior that training has alleviated).
Dixie is also an epic sleeper. When not moving, this girl can snore as loud as the rest.
 
THE NOT SO GOOD STUFF:
Although she loves humans, she just doesn't like other dogs.
She likes cats, but not in a good way
She really does need to drain energy. If she doesn't get it, she can be barky/demanding or destructive.
 
WHERE IS SHE NOW?
Dixie's family loves her very much. They haven't come to this place very lightly. In fact, they recently hired a dog trainer to help them learn what they were doing wrong. And it's through that process they learned their hectic lifestyle and very busy schedules just didn't leave much room for what Dixie needs to be an amazing dog. So here we are.
 
WHO WOULD DIXIE CHOOSE? 
Dixie's in search of a family that loves her as much as her last family, for sure, but one that lives a less hectic life (her previous dad was away for extended periods and mom worked 12-16hrs a day). Dixie needs to be the only dog in the home.She's looking for someone that can give her regular outlets for her energy and wants to practice her new found skills with. The included photos of her are with her trainer learning to sit (or lay) in one place and stay - a difficult task for most wiggly dogs. She's also learning to walk well on a leash and that all dogs aren't out to get her. She's doing extremely well in school. She's a very smart girl that's eager to please. Neither her former family or trainer want to see her go back to how things were, so Dixie will come to her new family with several free training sessions so the new family can understand what she needs and how to help her be the awesome family she is. If you're interested in meeting Dixie, complete an adoption application here and ask for her by name!

Masina, girl IS PENDING ADOPTION!!

Masina is a 9 week old female who is calm and reserved until she feels comfortable. Masina is an American Pit Bull Terrier so please keep that in mid when applying for her (i.e. breed restrictions, weight restrictions, etc). Masina loves to netflix and chill. If we had to pick any home for her, it would be with another dog to show her the way. When Masina has gained your trust or feels comfortable, she will come out of her shell and loves to run around the yard! This little girl is sweet and snuggly. Masina already knows sit and other basic commands. Masina is one of Fatu's males puppies. If she's going to be anything like her momma, she'll be just as sweet as her! We don't know who dad is but we suspect that this girl will be a solid 60lbs when fully grown. If you're interested in meeting Masina, please complete an adoption application here and ask for her by name!

Junior, male  IS PENDING ADOPTION!

Junior is a 2 1/2 year old male and looking for his furever home! If Junior could talk to us and tell us what kind of home he'd like, it'd look a lot like having paw-rents who have time to play with me every day. Junior also would be a perfect running buddy if that's your thing! Juniors goals look a lot like hiking, snuggles, more snuggles, and even some kids as he likes them! Junior would benefit from having another dog in the home. Foster mom reports that Junior knows basic commands like sit and stay. He's a pretty fast learner. Junior is potty trained, neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations. Foster mom is working on some basic leash and crate training skills before he heads off to his new home, where ever that may be! If you're interested in meeting Junior, please complete an adoption application here and ask for him by name!

Fatu, Female IS PENDING ADOPTION!

Meet Fatu! Fatu is an amazing dog along with an amazing momma! Fatu is sweet and loving. She is about 5-6 years old and still full of spunk. She's often seen as playing like a puppy herself. Fatu enjoys going on walks but this is the first time that Fatu is getting to know humans so introducing the world to her is something that might be a little scary but something she's interested in. She is gentle with little ones from what we've seen so far. If you want to be best friends with Fatu, treats are the way to her heart. Fatu wants to be part of the family, no matter what you're doing. Cats are unknow. Fatu gets along with most other dogs but a calmer personality would be best if there's another dog in the home. We're looking for someone who can give this beauty a second chance. If you're interested in meeting Fatu, please complete an adoption application here and ask for her by name!

Kilu, male PENDING ADOPTION!

This little guy has been through it. Kilu is approximately 12 weeks old and a dachshund mix. He was found up on the North Shore on a hiking trail. (2) hikers found him, covered in thousand's of ticks and turned him into North Shore Vet. His recovery was touch and go for a little while. The docs feel like he is making more progress every day so we feel that it's time to give Kilu a second chance. He’s getting more and more active and curious about his surroundings. Kilu enjoys exploring the house and yard and has started wagging his tail. He seems to do well with small children as he lives with (3) younger keiki. Cats and other dogs are unknown at this time. We don’t know much about him other than where he was found but what we do know is that he deserves to be spoiled and loved, each and every day. If you're interested in meeting Kilu, please complete an adoption application here and ask for him by name!

Malosi, Male PENDING ADOPTION!

Malosi is a 9 week old male who is full of spunk and known as the pack leader from his siblings. Malosi is an American Pit Bull Terrier so please keep that in mid when applying for him (i.e. breed restrictions, weight restrictions, etc). Malosi will lead the way and his siblings will follow! Malosi already knows sit and other basic commands. Malosi is one of Fatu's males puppies. If he's going to be anything like his momma, he'll be just as sweet as her! He loves to play with toys and especially tug. We don't know who dad is but we suspect that this boy will be a solid 60lbs when fully grown. If you're interested in meeting Malosi, please complete an adoption application here and ask for him by name!

 

Willie, Male PENDING ADOPTION!
This is Willie. His previous name was Handsome which we think suits him just as much because Willie is handsome! He’s a 2.5 year old, neutered boy. This fun loving little guy is 30lbs. Potty and crate trained, UTD on vaccines. Willie wants nothing more to vie for your affection, attention and care. He is a ladies man and gentle with children. He will take some time to warm up to dudes, though. This guy loves to play bow. He just begs for acknowledgment to run and zoom. He will even play hide and seek with you ? A yard is ideal and a fur sibling the same size would fit just right!! His bunny hops and head cocks are the cutest thing EVER. Willie knows sit/down and will gladly add to his repertoire with treats. He’s the perfect blend of energy. Laid back and digs on the sun hitting him just right, but can turn it up when feels high-spirited. Adventures are a new thing for this boy, but with the right touch of frequency…he’ll be the best buddy to take along on a hike or just cruise the beach!! If you're interested in meeting Willie, please complete an adoption application here and ask for him by name!
