This week we’d like to feature Makoa. Makoa - Oregon Humane Society
Makoa is a 7-year old, 66 pound, hunk of American pit bull love. Makoa means ‘bold man’ in Hawaiian, and he is…..He’s a big bold guy who has a very tender heart. Makoa really loves his people (once he gets to know you), and he worries when he’s home by himself. This beautiful, sensitive boy would do best with someone who’s home most of the time (any work-from-home folks out there?)! He lived with cats in his previous home was mostly indifferent to them. His previous person says he really likes to play with other dogs, but here at the shelter we’ve noticed he can be a little picky about some dogs, so he’ll need to meet any potential canine companions before going home to make sure it’s a love match! He also spent a lot of time around a 6-year old boy and did great with him.
Makoa is a cuddly dog who wants to lay around, nap, and be near his people most of the day. He gets bursts of energy and loves going on walks. In addition to having lived with cats, he’s also been around chickens and has always been calm and respectful toward them. He really likes to play ball and can be quite the goofy guy. Makoa loves riding in the car and loves swimming. Going to the beach is one of his favorite things. This sweet goofball is an affectionate, playful, friendly, and talkative dog. Yes, he does sometimes like to ‘talk’, especially when he’s home alone, so he might do best in a home without shared walls. And, as a bonus, Makoa is crate trained and he’s also potty trained. Oh, and did I mention his handsome brindle coat?
Are you home a lot? Are you looking for a big, sweet, bold man to hang out with? If you think Makoa is the guy for you, please fill out the questionnaire at the bottom of his profile and someone from Oregon Humane will give you a call to chat more about him.
