Hokulani 2

Aloha! Hokulani is Hawaiian for “Heavenly Star” and one look at our sweet gal will tell you she was sent here from heaven just for you! Hokulani (or ‘Lani as her foster family calls her) is a lithe, spirited girl who is very quickly overcoming a few trust issues. She weighs about 35 pounds, is around a year old and while she can startle easily, she can just as easily fall into bed with you and snuggle all day long. But, when you’re ready to get off your couch and go for a run – she’ll happily and obediently oblige.

Hokulani has done well having a “mentor” dog in the house; a confident, well trained older dog who she can look up to and learn from is a requirement for her new home. She has some learning to do, but she will pick up on things very quickly and be oh so willing if you’ve got a pocketful of treats! She would love a family who is willing to take a little bit of time each day to help guide her. She does well with her foster family’s toddler, but she is just a pup herself so it is best if it is supervised! She is very curious about kitties and will not chase them, but she does want to play very badly with them. The cats in her foster home do not play with dogs (ew!); Hokulani would love a cat in her home that would be a little more accepting of her different species status.

A sweet, spirited dog, Hokulani, cannot wait for that perfect home to call her own. She would be the perfect companion for a single dog looking for a friend in a patient, active family. If Hokulani sounds like the heavenly star you were looking for, please fill out an adoption application so we can set up a meet-and-greet with you and her foster family! She is fixed, chipped, and vaccinated and her adoption fee is $250.
