FOSTER OR ADOPTIVE HOME NEEDED FOR RESCUE LAB MIX:
Maui is a very energetic, smart, playful, affectionate, and handsome 1.5 year old, 60 lbs. black male lab mix (lab and Australian cattle dog). He was adopted from a shelter by a family with a toddler. Unfortunately, the family was unable to keep Maui as he can get jumpy and knock the toddler over. Maui also requires a lot of daily exercise and training and the family was unable to give him the time and attention he needs.
Maui was rehomed but unfortunately for Maui this home did not work out as the adoptive family had other dogs coming over to the home and Maui needs work on his dog socialization skills. He is currently in a board and train program for 4 weeks. Maui needs a large fenced in area where he can run around and play and he needs an active home with no young children and no cats, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Maui is reactive on leash and would not do well in a dog park or off leash. Maui’s board and train program is currently working with him on some of these issues.
Maui is neutered, housebroken, microchipped, current on vaccinations, and heartworm negative. He knows basic commands, is food motivated and is a fast learner. He is a loving and loyal companion and would do great with the right family. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Maui, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

To expedite the adoption process, please complete the cat or dog adoption form and bring a printed copy with you to the SF SPCA Adoption Center (Hours & Location). This helps us better understand what sort of pet you’re looking for so we can guide you every step of the way! Please bring a valid photo ID and verification that you are allowed to have a pet where you currently live.
First, we’ll meet with you to find out more about you and your pet preferences and answer your questions. Our goal is to help you find the pet that best fits your lifestyle and living situation so we want to make sure you have a realistic understanding of the time and resources necessary to provide training, medical treatment, and proper care for your new pet. This can take time so please allow at least one hour for the adoption process.
Once we have a good understanding of your living situation and the type of pet you’re interested in, we’ll make introductions and let you spend some quality time getting to know each other to see if there’s a love connection. It’s important that all household members take part in this important decision so please make sure everyone is present (including any resident dogs if you’re considering adding a new pooch to your pack).
Once love happens, we’ll complete the paperwork, review all the SF SPCA adoption benefits, provide information on any known medical or behavioral issues, and share tips to make the transition a success for both you and your new pet.
We consider you and your new furry friend a part of the SF SPCA family so please reach out with questions ― and be sure to share your adoption stories and pet photos at sfspca.org/stories
Don’t forget to schedule your first free health exam at the SF SPCA Veterinary Hospital within three days of adopting.
