A volunteer writes: Looking every bit like an adorable little brownish/reddish fox, Kylo greets me with an excited tail wag as he comes forward to be leashed. For a little guy he pulls hard on the leash, so a harness and some leash training is recommended so that both sides of the leash can enjoy the walk. He stops pulling in order to take care of his business (good boy!), show off his sit and enjoy some treats. Kylo pulls hard towards dogs on the street, wanting to meet every dog we pass, greets kenneled dogs with an easy tail wag, and on his first playdate, engages in play with the helper dog. Kylo needs to learn some better on street manners in greeting other dogs, so an experienced adopter is recommended, and one who will work on his manners with positive reward-based training. If an adorable, friendly, good looking little fox dog is your idea of a canine companion, then Kylo cordially invites you to stop by and meet him today.

A staff member adds: When I walked Kylo for the first time, I was aware of his reactivity on-leash, so I was prepared for the redirecting and shaping I would have to do, and the calm demeanor I would have to provide. To my surprise, his reactivity was mild. When Kylo saw a dog from a distance, he was quiet, but attentive. As we got closer, he pulled & jumped around, he demand-barked a few times, but with a quick `Shhhh` and a treat for re-focusing, he was great the rest of the walk. The next dog he saw, he only pulled and howled begging for attention. Neither time did he show any concerning behaviors. Kylo has been playful and tolerant of dogs off-leash. I believe with the right tools & redirecting (i.e. head halti & liver treats), Kylo will learn to be more of a gentleman towards dogs on leash.
