Meet Kevin

Hi, my name is Kevin! I'm a RED pawprint, which means I need an experienced home that meets some specific criteria. Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Sensitive/still learning to trust, friendly, active, protective, energetic
-Can Live with Kids: Unknown history with kids - ages 12+ required due to fearful behavior (up to counselor's discretion)
-Can Live with Cats: Ideally no, has a prey drive. May be okay with a CONFIDENT dog-savvy cat who won't run away from him.
-Can Live with Dogs: Yes, pending an initial introduction done here at the shelter
-Can do Apartment Living: No! Would do best in a home on property
-Potty Trained: Yes
-Bite History: No
-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Yes, may be required to go to one private lesson depending on adopter experience
-Energy Level: Medium
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: No

-Additional Information:
Kevin is Carpathian shepherd dog mix in need of some love and stability. This big boy was an outdoor-only dog in his previous home. He was never allowed inside and the only time he left the property was to be brought to the shelter. This unfortunately means he's a bit undersocialized and not sure how to exist in real life. Kevin needs a dog-experienced person with the time and patience necessary to get him up to speed. He would benefit greatly from a predictable routine, consistent training, and gradual socialization.

Kevin's breed is intended to guard livestock. The issue is that Kevin is not too good at his job and actually likes to chase livestock, particularly chickens and ducks. He'd be a great protector for larger animals (ie. anything goat-sized or larger), but may do best in a home where small animals are not allowed to roam free. While he does enjoy being outside, we would much prefer Kevin's adopters allow him inside and include him as part of the family. If you'd like to meet Kevin, the first step is filling out an adoption application. Staff will review applications to ensure it's a good match before scheduling an introduction.

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website ( or in person at our facility. We recommend calling into the shelter after your application has been submitted so our front desk can give you next steps on our adoption process.
