My story

Meet Kydden (Kiddin’)!

This beautiful four-year-old girl is ready for a new home. Kydden adores people! She loves pretty much anyone she has met. She is very high energy and will do best with a family that is very active. Because of her energy, we don’t recommend a family with small children, as she hasn’t mastered the art of staying calm and collected, and she is very solidly built.

While she loves people to pieces, sadly she does not feel the same way about her canine counterparts. She is dog reactive, and we recommend she be an only dog, and be kept from close encounters with other dogs. It is possible she will be ok with some dogs, but it would be best to have a trainer work with her to determine that. She does do okay with kitties, doesn’t really pay much attention other than to check them out a bit if they run.

Kydden is very smart. She went through obedience training, and retained what she did learn, but had a hard time paying attention because of the other dogs, so didn’t graduate at the top of her class. She will need a strong pack leader who can keep her focused and on track.

We aren’t sure if Kydden likes to swim as she hasn’t been around a pool or lake, but she does like to stand in the doggie pool and drink, kind of like a tourist standing in the ocean with their tropical cocktail.

Miss Kydden suffered from extreme anxiety when she came to us. While she does still have some anxious moments and maybe anxious in a new home, she has come a long way and would absolutely become comfortable in a new environment with lots of patience and love. She has been in boarding and kennel situations (short stays) to help with that, and has done very well!

We know the perfect home is out there for her somewhere! She really is a great girl and would love nothing more than to hang out with her people all day. We do think she will benefit from more training, which would also be a great bonding experience with her.

**** If you are interested in Kydden and think you may be a great home for her, fill out our online application or email ADOPT@VALLEYDOGS.ORG and see if you are a match!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

At Valley Dogs we make every effort to place the right animal in the right home. To aid in this goal, we use trained Adoption Consultants to help you select the best match for your lifestyle. You will meet with an Adoption Consultant and discuss your lifestyle, activity level, expectations, likes/dislikes, and past experiences with animals. Your consultant will then recommend the best match for your family and your lifestyle.

Go meet their pets

We do not own a kennel / shelter type facility. In most cases, we believe one of the effective and successful ways to match families and pets is to foster them in our own homes. Fostering dogs allows us to help train the dogs to have good doggie manners and allows us to learn about the dog's personality and character. Ultimately allowing us to give potential adopters complete information on the pet's behavior and how well he / she will fit with a family and lifestyle. Unfortunately, when we are not able to find the most appropriate foster home, we will on occasion utilize a private kennel on a case by case basis.
