|Maurice (Adoption Ambassador)|
Meet our very special friend, Maurice. Maurice is a seven-month-old Labrador Retriever mix. He came to the Kentucky Humane Society as a transfer from an overcrowded, rural shelter. Maurice came to us in poor health and with a fractured leg. Our veterinary team gave little Maurice a splint and sent him into foster care so he could heal and receive lots of love. Maurice immediately showed how sweet and loving of a pup he is. His foster family say that he has been great meeting all adults. He is, however, unsure about children. Maurice has been nothing but kind, but he can be scared by the erratic movements of small kids. Because of this, Maurice is spending the rest of his time at KHS with his foster family. Here he can become even more socialized and feel secure until he finds his forever home. With staff, Maurice is playful and eagerly approaches for attention. He loves to play with rope toys and romp around outside. Maurice has done well walking around the loud shelter environment, but as always, a meet and greet with any potential doggy friends is recommended. Because he seems uncomfortable around children, Maurice must go to a home without kids. Maurice is still very much a puppy and will needs lots of love, play and guidance. We know the right home will help him continue to blossom into a wonderful and loving dog. Could you be the person for him? Maurice is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations.
Since he thrives being in a home, Maurice is going to stay with his foster family until his forever person comes along. If you're looking for a sweet, furry friend, please consider Maurice! To meet Maurice, email us a dog adoption application found at www.kyhumane.org . The adoption application can be sent to our foster coordinator at [email protected] . If you have any further questions, feel free to call 502-366-3355 ext 2260.
Give me guidance so I can become a well-behaved social adult! Just like a human baby, I'll need you to help make important decisions. Should I chew on shoes or toys? Potty outside or on the floor? I'll be a challenge but, with patience and love, I'll give you a lifetime of companionship!
