Kaia the 2-year-old German Shepherd mix is looking for a forever home. Her foster family says “she is a sweetheart to all that greet her, men, women, and even older children” –how can you resist? Take a peek at her adoption profile!
Kaia has been living with one of our foster families on their small farm, and this is what they have to say about her:
Kaia enjoys lounging in the house on her pillow while chewing on an elk antler or playing with her favorite stuffed animal snake toy! She frequently brings the toy over to her foster and drops it at her feet to play. She also enjoys chasing balls in the yard! This girl is a keeper and will make a wonderful companion to someone or a family that will step up and lead her just as all dogs do!
Kaia comes from an overcrowded shelter in California. She is spayed and microchipped and current on her DHPP, Rabies, and bordetella. She tested negative for heartworm and has been wormed and flea treated.
Kaia loves going on car rides and hops up easily into the car and into her crate. She is well-mannered indoors. Like all dogs, she will need to have clear boundaries and a consistent routine established in her new adoptive home. She is highly intelligent and responds very well to a quick “No” and correction. She knows a few basic commands like “Sit”, “Come”, “Down” and “Kennel” and will flourish with an owner that can be a leader that will continue with her training, routine, and structure.
We recently had Kaia evaluated by a K9 trainer we work with. He said this dog is smart, a quick learner, very responsive, a great dog. He also said he could have her fully obedience trained in a weekend. We watched him with her for a 10 minute lesson. Beautiful! It was great to watch Kaia be so responsive to who she knew to be a leader. This dog kenneled, sat, downed, and walked beautifully on a loose leash. She wants to please and she wants a leader as all dogs do. Kaia has pushed up against and jumped up on her foster so her foster is working on firming up those boundaries with her.
