R.O.A.R. Squad: Jennifer and Nathan and their dog, Mahealani

Welcome to our latest R.O.A.R. Squad members from Hawaii: Jennifer and Nathan and their dog, Mahealani!

Google tells me that Mahealani means “full moon“- I love it, it’s beautiful!

Read more about this beautiful family after the jump- aloha!

To learn more about the R.O.A.R Squad (Rescue Owners Are Rockin!), or if you would like to be profiled, all the info you need is HERE. A special shout out to the fabulous folks in New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nunavut, Prince Edward Island, and Idaho. These are the last states, provinces and territories we need-  we really need you!

Rockin’ Rescue Owners: Jennifer Chignell and Nathan Serrano

Gorgeous Pup: Mahealani- she is a Chihuahua mix and while the Waimea shelter said she was about 4 years old, the Kona shelter thought she could be 6 or 7 years old

Perfect Dog: Nate and I drove to all three shelters on the Big Island to find the perfect dog on Nate’s birthday last year.

Fabulous Rescue Org: Hawaii Island Humane Society

Little Dog, Big Personality: She has a great personality! If she gets annoyed at things that are too loud she’ll just growl to let you know to quiet down. If you don’t, she will bark until you do.

Early Riser: Mahealani loves to wake us up in the morning so she can have the bed to herself.

Perfect 1st Dog: We are amazed that we found such a great, amazing dog. She is my very 1st dog!

Where: Kailua Kona, Hawaii
