Please take the time to read the entire profile. We spend alot of time putting as much info in them as possible. Thank you in advance.
Kilo just wants to have a family of his own and be able to enjoy his life for who he is. He is a great dog and loves to have a good time. We adore the big lug and want to see him thrive in a great home.
Kilo is a great dog and we adore him. He is a stunning shepherd mix guy with a fawn coat and naturally floppy ears and fluffy tail. He is a great dog who just needs a home that can give him a job and something to do. He is happy guy and still very much a puppy at heart. He is not even 2 yet. He is a great dog and we adore him. He is so smart and willing to please if someone would do something with him. He is a great dog. He is typical German Shepherd size, but they feel that he has a little mastiff in him. We just know what ever it is, he is sweet as can be.
Kilo came to us from his past family. They had gotten him as a puppy in a rash decision. They did not really go looking for him, but he found them. He was a lot more then they could handle and they soon were scared of him. He would bark at people and things and they were so scared of him rather then facing what he was scared of they allowed him to bark and create a scene. All he needed was reminded that this was not ok. He is a great dog who just needed to know that barking at people was not how to handle being uncomfortable. So sadly he was protecting his family from things they were scared of. And what they were scared of was him. It was a recipe for disaster. We are so glad a good friend asked us to help, As he deserves a great home and someone that knows shepherds are amazing dogs.
Kilo is a great guy who really loves to have a good time. He is a bit shy at first being that he was scared of everyone when he came to us. But once he knows you are in control he is amazing. He just doesn’t want to feel like the pack leader. He loves to have other dogs to show him the ropes and loves to go do things. He is a great hiking buddy and loves to do anything including holding the couch down. He is an amazing dog and loves toys, treats, and just being your best friend. He is a great dog and we love him. He loves to play and have a great time. We adore the big lug and he just wants a family of his own.
Kilo is up to date, dewormed, flea treated, altered, and micro chipped. He is house broken, crate trained, does ok on leash and has been through both basic and advanced training classes. He knows his stuff as long as you are the leader and he feels he needs to listen. He is crate trained and does like his crate. He is a great car riders and loves to go. He has recently met a few cats, chickens and ducks and done well. We feel that he could do great in a home with older kids, or anyone willing to do things with him. He is amazing.
We spend a lot of time trying to get to know the dogs in our program as best as we can. This means that we have spent time introducing them to dogs, cats, kids, animals, people and as many things as we can. We try to do as much as we can to evaluate them, both with in our group and if the dogs come from other rescues or shelters their evaluations as well. However dogs are individuals and will react to different situations differently. This means that we do not know how a dog will react in every situation. We give out our best guess based off information provided but the handler of a dog and the way they are introduced to a situation makes a huge impact. So if you have any questions of how to introduce a dog to your home, please let us know and we will provide as much info as we can from pamphlets to helping find a trainer in your area.
Our rescue aims to help dogs who are passed by and over looked by most rescues and people. We help the dogs who are in need of medical care, vetting, training and breeds that most will not help with. In most shelters if you are large dog, a big dog, or a male dog; from the moment you walk in you are on barrowed time. If you have docked ears or are a guardian breed your time was over before you walked in the doors. We aim to save these dogs and give them a second chance. Please help us save more lives by helping with our medical bills as they grow. This year has already been hard and we have many medical dogs in need.
