|2.5 Years Old||Female||Husky Mix||73 lbs|
My name is Kaia and I am super pumped to be the newest feature dog for Finding Them Homes. I’m only 2.5 years old and turning 3 in June! That’s still young in dog years. The vet has spayed, vaccinated and microchipped me already! The vet always says I’m such a good girl when I’m there! My foster mom can easily trim my nails too! I just stand there and let her do it. I will tuck my head in your arm while they do what they to do.
In my foster home there are a few dogs ranging from 35-70lbs and I do well with them! I am definitely at the bottom of the pecking order here. I do best with confident and balanced dogs. Trainers would call me an opportunist meaning that if I sense a dog to be weak I will pick on it. If a dog growls at me I will growl back. Also, sometimes I just grumble because I can! I am not to go to a home with small breed dogs of any kind. Cats are also a big no no! I know that play time is only to be outside! That’s where we run and wrestle and have fun!!! I do have a jealous side so make sure to share attention with me if you have another dog. Sharing is caring right?
When I first arrived south I was an anxious girl living indoors. I would pace in the house and if a window was open I would try to break out of it. Now I am quite accustomed to my indoor life! Sometimes for bathroom breaks I will run out, do my business and run right back in! You can mostly find me curled up on a dog bed or curled up at your feet. I am quite relaxed inside now. I can’t guarantee that I will be this calm in a new home right away but know that it will come.
My crate skills continue to be a work in progress. They use zip ties on my crate just in case I try to break out which I’ve only ever done once. I used to put up a big fight going into my crate but now all it takes is a kong filled with deliciousness to get me in and keep me quiet! Now, no apartments please because when you get home I make quite the fuss begging to see you and let me out! It’s super important that when you bring me home I spend lots of time in my crate and only out for bathroom breaks, training and walks. No attention either!!! Don’t cover my crate with a blanket because I used it to help escape my crate!
