Kaluha's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Kaluha's Story...
This little lady moved all the way from New Mexico with her family to a small, rural mid-central Idaho cattle ranching town. Once there, she promptly got out of the yard and found herself on a playground full of children. This she loved, but the teachers called the doggie cops, and she ended up in the slammer. HEAVILY pregnant and not an idea what to do, she whelped out 9 healthy, fat little babes on the concrete floor of the shelter. All 9 pups contracted Parvo at about 4 weeks of age and sadly, none of them made it. I tell you this not to upset, but rather to shock. It is VERY important you know this happens every day, in every town in this country. Do the right thing, spay and neuter your pets. Keep them fully immunized and make them wear proper ID at all times. Kaluha is a wonderful, happy, healthy girl. None the worse for the wear, we stepped in and pulled her to safety after we heard this story. She is a marvelous little dog, very athletic and eager to please. She doesn't have an aggressive bone in her body, even when challenged by an aggressive dog. She just bounces away, and looks back as if she's saying, "catch me if you can".... I don't want to fight, I'm a lover. She's extrememly intelligent, LOVES and LIVES for kids, other dogs and playtime. She is an confinement challenge though, and will only be going to a home where she can be with someone most of the time. She will need a 6' fenced yard, in good repair. She will need a buddy to play with and keep her company when you have to leave her home without you. She can be destructive if left loose, alone in the house. She needs an experienced owner who will love her and nuture her for the rest of her life, and never again abandon her.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kaluha, a Hayden Basenji/American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basenji/American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Hayden, or seeking a Basenji/American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Hayden.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hayden already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hayden breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Basenji/American Staffordshire Terrier breeders who help with Basenji/American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hayden paves the way for another one to be saved.
