Josie No. 57 is a 1-year-old, female tricolor labrador-terrier mix. She weighs 44 pounds and was brought to the Maui Humane Society's Puunene shelter when her owner decided he no longer wanted her. The shelter's veterinarian staff discovered she was heart-worm positive and will need medicine and comfortable surroundings for about three months to fully recover. Josie sits, lies down and walks well on a leash.
