Hello, meet Maurice! I adopted Maurice in January from the SF SPCA. I am so sad to say goodbye to him, but I am moving across the country and will no longer be able to give him the care he deserves. Maurice is a really special dog and I am hoping to find him a great new home that is the right fit. Please reach out if you are interested, and I can give you more details about him (and more cute photos!).
Maurice is very affectionate and absolutely loves to snuggle and be pet. He will be happy to cuddle up to you on the couch or bed at any time. Your heart will melt when he comes over to put his head in your lap. Maurice is energetic and enjoys exploring the neighborhood on walks and loves to run around and play with other dogs at the dog park.
Maurice is comfortable around dogs, but has anxiety around people. He has made some big improvements in the time since I adopted him, and he is on daily medications to help ease his anxiety, but this is something that his next owners will need to be willing to work around. I have worked with the SPCA behavior team and a great trainer, and can share lots of information and strategies with you based on the work we have done. I can also offer some paid meetings with my current trainer.
Maurice likes other dogs, and I think he could be a good fit as a second dog in a household since he is more confident around dogs. Having access to a fenced yard would be helpful for him (but is not required).
Maurice is about 3 years old, 16 pounds, and is neutered. He is house trained and well behaved at home (no issues with chewing etc) and is able to be left alone at home with no separation anxiety.
