Meet our very special boy Maui. Maui is a two-year-old Terrier mix who weighs just 28 pounds and originally came to the Kentucky Humane Society as a young puppy. As a baby, we knew right away that Maui had some special needs and would need a special home. Maui is blind and has a neurological condition called cerebellar hypoplasia that causes him to occasionally lose balance and fall over. He also has been diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and takes daily medication to manage his disease. Maui was adopted by a wonderful family but they recently had a baby and because of Maui's blindness, he was uncomfortable with the young child. The family was heartbroken to bring Maui back to us, but they needed to do what was right for their family and for Maui. Now that Maui is back with KHS, we are determined to find him the perfect home! Despite his conditions, Maui is a lovable and hilarious guy who doesn't seem to notice he's different. He lived with an older, docile dog in his previous home and didn't have issues. Because of his blindness, he doesn't always have the best manners with other dogs and will jump around quickly in an attempt to play. He also often bumped into the other dog, so he will need a very understanding dog friend and a meet and greet with any resident canines would be best. Maui's former family says he is house-trained, crate trained and mostly wants to lay on the couch with you and relax. This tiny guy tires quickly and would love a quiet home with kids 10 and older. Could you be the one to make Maui's dream of a forever home come true? Maui is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations.

I came to the Kentucky Humane Society because my owner could no longer care for me. I miss being in a home and have a lot of love to give.
