Luna

Breed: Terrier Mix
Age: 1 Year
Weight:12 lbs
Gender: Female

Posted 6-17-22. Luna is a loving, fun and full of character 16-month-old spayed (and chipped), female terrier mix. She is playful, affectionate, and cuddly. She enjoys long brisk walks and loves running and playing at the beach. She walks great on a leash and is eager to sniff and explore the world. She loves to catch balls, play with other dogs, eager to learn new tricks and loves your attention. Her favorite things are tummy rubs! She is potty trained and at night likes to go in her crate with the door open and cozy blankets to sleep. The ideal home for Luna would be a responsible caring and active couple who already has one dog (not a cat) and/or older children and where one person is at home full time. Luna does like to dig here and there, so a secure fence, and keeping an eye on her is important. Luna’s fur is medium length and semi coarse and twice weekly brushing is all she needs to stay fabulous. She should not be left in a crate for more than one hour a day and not be left alone since she tends to chew things still due to her young age. Her playful energy level is age appropriate. Luna is not an AFRP dog. For more information about adopting Luna, please contact Lou, 831-224-2586 or email wirsiesse3@gmail.com

Maui

Breed: Black Lab
Age: 2 Years
Weight: 60 lbs
Gender: Male

Post renewed 4-29-22. Maui is a very energetic, smart, playful, affectionate, and handsome 2 year old, 60 lbs. black male lab mix (lab and Australian cattle dog). He was adopted from a shelter by a family with a toddler. Unfortunately, the family was unable to keep Maui as he can get jumpy and knock the toddler over.  Maui also requires a lot of daily exercise and training and the family was unable to give him the time and attention he needs. Maui needs work on his dog socialization skills. He is currently in a board and train program for 4 weeks.  Maui needs a large fenced in area where he can run around and play and he needs an active home with no young children and no cats, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.  Maui is reactive on leash and would not do well in a dog park or off leash. Maui's board and train program is currently working with him on some of these issues. Maui is neutered, housebroken, microchipped, current on vaccinations, and heartworm negative. He knows basic commands, is food motivated and is a fast learner.  He is a loving and loyal companion and would do great with the right family. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Maui, please email newhome4maui@yahoo.com
