Maurice is one of many pit bulls who is commonly overlooked at the shelter, but the wants people to know how he shines.
Maurice is three years old and has never been part of a household where he was cared for and loved. It took him a while to venture out of his kennel, and now that volunteers from LAP have given him attention, he has come out of his shell. Maurice loves squeaky toys and playing a game of fetch, and will even gently take treats from your hand. He is gentle, sensitive, smart, and devoted to those who take care of him.
The shelter has been taking its toll on Maurice. His ribs are beginning to show and his stomach is sore from lying on the hard floor. Please consider adopting Maurice so that he can know a comfortable home and an owner to love.
Maurice is uncomfortable around other dogs and does not get along with cats, so he would do best as the only pet in the household. Since he is on the larger side, he would do better in a home with older children.
He is neutered and has his rabies shot.
To meet Maurice or inquire about one of LAP’s many dogs, call their dog department at 631-757-9373, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
