Kimchi is a 32lb, 5 year old russet colored, short-haired silly girl of undetermined breed that leaves her looking like an gigantic chihuahua. She loves cats, or rather cats love her, as she's largely impartial to their company. She is a great little lovebug and her short-short fur makes her a welcome bed warmer during the winter. She loves being under the covers entwined in your legs and feet! Kimchi's signature move is to gently rest her chin on you whenever possible. The specificity of it is incredibly cute!
She is incredibly smart and does great in the home: house-broken, takes commands to "off" the bed or couch and "go to bed", etc. She is easily crated and often sleeps in her crate (with the cat!) without command. She is spunky and, combined with her willingness to learn, would probably make a great agility dog or happy to learn a lot of tricks.
Kimchi's spicy side comes out on her neighborhood walks. She takes issue with other dogs on the sidewalk, but is easily encouraged to keep moving and resumes her comfortable walking gait after the the coast is clear of other dogs. Out of site, out of mind. She is a great walker, but not quite cut out for the dog park. Her general concerns have to be highly managed to take strolls through the farmers market or other social spaces. Not that it's impossible, just that she needs a cooperative and aware human guide to keep her spicy side at bay.
Kimchi lived with three cats in her former home and is she is currently fostered with two dogs and a cat. She is friends with her dog hosts, but would prefer a home with cats only.
