Makini is a female mandrill who appears in The Lion Guard. She is Rafiki's young apprentice, set to succeed him as Royal Mjuzi of the Pride Lands once Kiara becomes queen.

Background Info:

Makini was sadly surrendered by her owners to a local animal shelter due to financial hardship. She was a scared, but very sweet pup. MPR saw her adorable face and knew we could turn her life around in our program and find her a forever home!

Adoption Fee: $200
Breed:  Pit Bull
Sex:  Female
Age:  6-10 mths
Weight:  35 lbs and growing

Health Condition:

Makini is on medication for a stomach bug, otherwise she is healthy and ready for adoption.


Physical Description:  

Makini is a young pup, around 7 months old. She’s small, but still growing. Her coat is blue and white with the most darling face. Her ears are perky and cropped and she will capture your heart with those expressive light brown eyes.


Living Situation:  

This super sweet girl is lucky to be in a foster home with two adults, two children to play and snuggle up with, and a large male American bully who she absolutely adores. Makini is crated when left home alone and she easily goes in without ever making a fuss.



Makini is a very responsive, medium energy dog. She is still puppy-like with her playful energy and can get nippy at times, but she does calm down. This super sweet girl loves to cuddle. Her previous owners say that she also loves to play fetch and is afraid of the vacuum.

Behavior with people: 

Makini is outgoing and friendly with everyone. She gets excited to meet new people and can show her silly spazzy side.


Behavior with children:  

Makini doesn’t seem to have a preference for age when it comes to humans. She likes kids of all ages and adults alike.  


Behavior with other dogs:  

Makini absolutely loves her foster brother. She gets along very well with him and her previous owners also confirmed that she gets along with other dogs. We think she would love to have a doggy playmate or two in her forever home.


Behavior with other animals:  

She does not seem to have much of a prey drive. Makini does not show any interest in squirrels, cats, or any other creatures when she’s out on a walk.  


Makini is housebroken and crate trained – score! She will sleep either loose in the house or in her crate at night – she doesn’t cause any trouble either way. This sweet girl is responsive and eager to please.

Best Attribute:   

One look at Makini and she will win you over! As a small puppy with cute markings and the most adorable face, she is simply irresistible. Her sweet nature and ability to get along with anyone (adults, children, dogs, cats perhaps?!) makes her a great addition to just about any family.
