Stevie

Terrier Mix | 2 Years old 

Temperament: Timid first, playful and loving after

Behavior: I am very timid and need lots of time to get used to any new environment, situation, or person. I am easily spooked and once I am, it may take me a while to regain confidence and trust. But then I am a happy girl who loves to play. 

I am afraid of strangers coming to the house or get insecure if my humans change our daily routine.  If I am overwhelmed I want to hide and disappear until I am brave enough again. 

When in my normal routine, I am very playful and happy. 

House Trained: Yes

Leash Trained: In progress. Because of my  insecurity, I am not comfortable with new places and will freeze up.

Kennel trained: Yes, I am in the crate if I am alone at home and I sleep int here at night. 

Good with kids: I haven’t met kids yet, but strangers are stressing me already. 

Good with dogs: Yes, I love other dogs. 

Good with cats: I never have met a cat yet.  

Medical note: I have a histiocytoma on my nose that requires monitoring. The doctor said Histiocytomas are common in younger dogs and is likely nothing to worry about, but it must be monitored for a few months to ensure there is no abnormal growth.

I am looking for a home that will be very patient with me. In best case a couple or small family that has gained experienced with insecure dog already. It may take some time until I trust you, and I can’t be pressured. 

 If I know you I love to be pet and love to play with you. I love to tear up my toys, and love to find your socks or other items around the house. 

I would love to have a furry sibling. In best case a confident calm soul that can help me . My favorite time of day is running free outside with my BFF (1.5 yr old pittie mix). I am a tough cookie and play hard.

Chupa

Hound Mix | 2 Years old | 40 lbs

Temperament: First timid, then sweet, then loyal

Behavior: Chupa is learning how to trust herself and anybody else. Her strategy is to be invisible. She is very quiet and does not bark unnecessarily. If she trusts you, she will let you pet her, in best case forever.  She will sit quietly beside you and sweetly lick your hand out of gratitude. 

House Trained: Yes

Leash Trained: Chupa is still learning to walk on a leash. She will either be so close to you that she may trip you or she’ll get spooked and clothesline herself.

Kennel trained: No

Good with kids: Only older kids, because of her insecurity. 

Good with dogs: Yes, she loves other dogs.

Good with cats: Tolerates them, but not affectionate with them yet. 

For Chupa we are looking for a family with experiences, that has the understanding, time and patience to help her overcome her insecurity and become a balanced and happy dog. 

Chupa would love a furry sibling, but it is not mandatory.

Ehu

Terrier Mix | 6 Months old

Aloha friends,  I am Ehu! I may be small but boy am I mighty! Ehy means strength, passion and vitality. Everything I do, I do with lots of passion and love like playing with my big brother Bula. He got adopted already and I miss him dearly. We run around playing tag, chased leaves that blow in the wind and cuddled up together during our naps. We were like scrappy doo and scooby doo, the best of pals and the ying to each other’s yang! I am hopeful that I will find a friend like Bula again. 

I am very loving, affectionate, rambunctious and spunky. I would do great in a home with another dog or a person/ohana that has lots of time for me. I am still young and want someone who is committed to my education. I do love the beach and being outside chasing one adventure after another. I am not a couch potato, and can’t wait to meet you.
