Meet Kiiro

Kiiro was born to a stray mama in the rescuer's neighborhood. He was taken in after weaning and she has worked with him extensively.

With a guesstimated birthday in Dec. 2019, Kiiro is still mostly puppy. His mama is American Staffordshire mix and dad is husky with either Carolina Dog or shepherd genes.

Kiiro is a sweet boy, but will bark initially at strangers and views them with suspicion. He prefers other polite dogs.

Kiiro gets along with cats and ignores the ones in his foster home. He'll chew, so should be offered plenty of authorized things to chew on. He's house-trained and leash-trained with very gentle manners under most circumstances.

Barking is typical in a new home environment for Kiiro. He's expressing his discomfort, but will settle in within a few days. We recommend his new family crate him when he can't be supervised as he's been known to jump on his foster's kitchen table. He's most comfortable in a 42" crate so he can sprawl if he chooses. An old (but clean) blanket to lay on is preferred so he isn't laying on a hard surface.

April 2020: We are not holding public adoption events at this time. Qualified families are being invited to appointments to meet specific dogs. There are currently no opportunities to view multiple dogs and adoption events aren't being held at Tractor Supply in Lenoir.

Whether dogs / puppies come in as strays or owner surrenders, we usually have to make our best guess as to birthdate and breed.

If adopted into a home with other animals, particularly cats, your new pet should be crated or secured when you're not available to supervise to insure a harmonious relationship.

A vet reference is required to confirm responsible pet ownership. We suggest first time pet owners look for an adult dog for companionship and to gain experience through another rescue or your local government-run animal control..

Adoption fee covers two vaccinations plus spay / neuter if using our local low-cost spay/neuter clinic (overnight stay required) and surgery occurs as agreed upon in the adoption contract. Convenience fee equal to refundable spay/neuter deposit may be added if using our veterinarian. Additional fees for 3rd puppy vaccination, refundable spay/neuter deposit, etc. may apply.

We are an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue. We receive no funding from agencies. Available animals can be seen most Saturdays at Tractor Supply in Lenoir from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We recommend interested parties contact us to pre-qualify for adoption so their new furry family can go home once paperwork is complete. Fees are required in cash. For more information on our organization, our website is www.petpartnersrescue.org.
