Welcome to Maui! He is described as a sweet, goofy and sensitive boy who just wants to cover his people in kisses. He is a boisterous pooch who loves tug and his dream come true would be a toy box filled with tough toys to play with!
Maui enjoys other dogs but is still learning proper greetings. He does best with dogs who respect his space and won’t rush him into becoming best buddies. For Maui, slow and steady wins the race! He would do fine in a home as an only dog but could also live with another well matched dog. Maui is cautious around new people but after a few sniffs, he warms and is looking for all the pets and scratches. Maui is very food motivated and he is a fast learner. Maui knows basic commands and we would love a family who can continue his obedience training.
Due to Maui’s anxiety, he still isn’t finding walks very enjoyable. He needs his new person to be understanding of this and not force him out on long outings so because of this, a yard is required. With positive experiences, we feel Maui can eventually get to a point where daily walks could be fun for him. When Maui does go on a walk, he can be reactive and bark alot initially. He is easily redirected to focus his attention on his people with treats but we still recommend using a proper walking harness while out
Maui is a fan of routine and he requires his new people to give him a predictable life. This sensitive boy can be easily thrown off by things changing in the home so continuing to use his crate and setting up baby gates will help give Maui his safe space during changes. Maui also feeds off his people’s energy so he will become anxious and upset if his people are giving off that energy so he will require his adopters to be confident and experienced dog owners.
Maui loves giving kisses and snuggling up close to his humans. When he’s really happy, he will wag his tag in circles like a little windmill! Apply here for sweet Maui: https://www.sitwithme.ca/dogs/maui/
