Hi! My name is Darwin, sometimes people call me D. I'm a shy 3.5 year old boy who is looking for someone who will love me forever. Are you the one I've been waiting for?
Right now I live with my foster parents and two foster brothers. My foster brothers and I get along really well, and I LOVE to run around the yard and wrestle with them! Sometimes I can play a little rough, and my foster parents have to remind me to calm down. I am really good at taking corrections, even though I may talk back a little! My foster mom says that I like to let her know what I think by making some funny sounds. I know "sit" and "kennel," and take treats with a gentle mouth. When my foster parents leave for work, I hang out in my kennel and have no problems. Sometimes I even like to take a nap in my kennel with the door open! My foster brothers and I all sleep on the floor in dog beds, although sometimes I like to walk around the room a little bit before I fall asleep. My favorite thing is when I get to lay on the couch with my foster parents, and I always like to put my head in someones lap. I'm very responsive to touch. I like to chew on toys, and play tug with anyone who will play with me.
I would be best fit as a second dog, I need a buddy to wrestle with. I will need some training to help with a few things, as I can get pretty scared meeting new people. It takes me a little while to calm down after meeting new people, but with patience I become a calm sweet boy. My foster parents and the training staff at KCPP have been working with me, and I am learning! I also prefer a home with no small kids and no cats.
If you'd like to meet me and my foster parents, I'd love to meet you! They can tell you all about how wonderful I am. I'd also like to meet any other dogs you may have before you take me home, staff at KCPP can help with that. Adoption price includes current vaccinations, microchip, neuter and 30 days of pet insurance.
