Characteristics: Makoa is a great boy but unfortunately his owners are moving to a retirement community and can’t take MaKoa with them. He is super athletic and LOVES to play ball, frisbee, etc, He is in his kennel during the day and when he sleeps. He LOVES to go for walks and he LOVES to go for a ride in the car and put his face out in the breeze He eats at 6am and 6pm and gobbles up his food. He is very protective of his yard and family He loves to sit on the porch and be outside. He loves to sit by the window and look outside He needs a fence to run and play He is good with other dogs He LOVES people He is very affectionate and loves to sit on your feet when we watch tv (he does not want us to move:)) He does NOT get up on furniture and has his own dog cushion We take him to Comfort Kennels to board often and he LOVES going there.
Notes from evaluator: Makoa seems like a very friendly confident dog that knows what he wants. He loves toys, brings toys to you and releases. He walks twice a day and plays fetch/ tug at home with male owner. He also takes treats gently. Mom told story of how boarding facility must lock gates, otherwise Makoa will let himself and other dogs out. Makoa seems like he attaches himself to one person and wants their attention the most but does like attention from other people. Makoa seems like a very smart dog that simply needs someone to dedicate a litte more time to him. Makoa received training as a puppy and young dog. It seems like he has lost some of his training through lack of practice but with a little repetition could be fully trained again. He does pull on the leash a littler bit so leash training would be a must. Is able go open gates at boarding facility. Does not chew or destroy furniture or toys. I think he would do best in a home with a fenced back yard where he can go outside and run around. Overall, I think Makoa seems like a wonderful dog that is very obviously loved.
