As a 6-year-old, 73-pound Catahoula mix, I have learned how important it is to be gentle with those around me. I love to shower my friends with kisses. I'm Tony, and I was left at the Puunene shelter in the middle of the night last March. Now that I have been at the Maui Humane Society for a while and have learned the ropes, I'm hoping to finally get the chance to dazzle a new family with all my cool tricks. I already know how to sit, fetch and "drop it." I walk very well on my leash. I have a can-do attitude, and I'm quite eager to please.
