Meet Kimber

TO CONTACT THE FOSTER HOME, email kristyn.stock@gmail.com>. DO NOT use the Petfinder form. Inquiries don't reach us.

Meet Kimber! She can be a little shy at first, but once she gets over her initial nervousness her sweet, goofy side starts to emerge. She loves cuddles and hanging out with her person, and *loves* to play with her canine friends after appropriate introductions. She can pester a bit and be a little rude at times (she is a young pup after all) but responds well to corrections and handler redirection. She isn't a dog who will do well in a dog park or with random leash greetings, but she's been introduced to dozens of dogs through pack walks or in a structured daycare setting and has done great with everyone.

Overall, Kimber is a sweet pup who will need continued basic training and confidence building. She needs a home with adopters who are prepared to do some training and understand the importance of rules and leadership. Kimber can be skeptical of strangers and unfamiliar dogs, so an adopter should be prepared to work on this and advocate for her. She's learning to walk well on a slip lead but does still pull and hit the brakes at times when nervous. City life may be a little tough for her at first, so unless her adopter is experienced in working with dogs she will be better suited to suburban/rural life. Kimber is still learning manners, so no kids under 10 please. She has not been cat tested.

Kimber is a 1.5 year old spayed female cattle dog mix, around 45lbs. She's moderate energy: neighborhood walks and playtime in the yard is enough to satisfy her. She can handle longer hikes (we've done up to 5mi on easy terrain) but doesn't seem super excited about them; she's usually happy when we head back to the car. If you're looking for a running partner or hiking companion she probably isn't your gal, but if you prefer lower key walks and training excursions then hanging out in the yard enjoying the fresh air she may be right up your alley! Kimber is house- and crate-trained, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations and preventatives.

Kimber is being fostered in Marshfield, MA and needs to meet her potential family prior to adoption. Check out #CoolasaCuKimber on Instagram and Facebook for more pictures, and view videos of her in action on her Instagram highlight reel here: tiny.cc/CoolasaCuKimber
