HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – A shelter dog on the Valley Isle has finally found a forever home after over a year.

The 6-year-old poi dog named Lilo was brought to the Maui Humane Society as a stray last year.

Lilo went back and forth between foster care and the Maui Humane Society for a total of 396 days before her foster mom adopted her on Saturday.

Now, Lilo is playing tug of war and going for car rides around her new home in Kihei.

Aloha kakou! My name is Kilo and I am this week’s Pet of The Week at Maui Humane Society! Nothing makes my heart sing like a good tennis ball! I can be a little shy meeting new people, but I really enjoy the company of other dogs, and tennis balls! Did I mention how much I love tennis balls?
