Need a soft and snuggly new friend that will always look at you with total love in their eyes? Then you really must meet me, Tyson, dog No. H118. I’m a super gentle and loving 3-year-old neutered male that is looking for a forever family to adore.

I was in very shabby shape when they found me lost and alone on Lanai in January. Luckily, they sent me over to Maui Humane Society where I have put on over 10 pounds and my hair is growing in as soft as ever. Now that I’m feeling much better, I’ve had awesome opportunities to make new four-legged friends in playgroups, and lots of two-legged friends on Beach Buddies outings.

Basically, the only thing I still need is the chance to cuddle and kiss my way into your heart and your home today.
