Kili is a wonderful young lad. They say that girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice but I believe someone sprinkled a boat load on this boy. :-) Kili is sweet, loving and enjoys being with his family. He has a friendly and gentle nature which makes me believe he would do well with older considerate children but I haven’t had him around any. This fellow loves playing with his toys and the other dogs. He would love to have a playmate who loves playing as much as he does. He does very well with his two foster canine siblings. They are all left to free roam the house while I'm gone without any destructive behavior. He enjoys being outside, going for walks, hikes, etc. He rides well in the car. He was unsure in the beginning about jumping into the car but he is doing better with that. Once he gets in, he is okay.
Did I mention that he is a big cuddle bug? Well he is. When I sit down at my computer, he will come over, gently put his front paws in my lap and lean his head into my chest to be loved on. Melts my heart every time. He is also a big (well medium size) lap dog. When I’m on the couch he will come up and lay down across my lap.
Kili doesn’t seem to have had a lot of training at his prior home so we have been working on this. He is doing better but will need someone who will continue to work with him. He is food motivated so that is a big plus. :-) He knows how to sit, down, off and leave it. Not to say he is perfect but he is working on it. He has also counter surfed a few times but is learning that is not something he should do. He takes correction very well and a simple ‘no’ or ‘eheh’ normally does the trick.
Kili did okay when he went for his cat scan. :) He was curious but didn't show any signs of aggression. I think he will do okay with an indoor cat. Since he has some prey drive, I believe he might chase an outdoor cat.
Kili is a wonderful boy who has lots of love to give. So what do you say – think he might be the right one for you
