Meet Kimmy

Kimmy is one of three dogs that were dropped off at a rural county shelter. She was covered in fleas (which are now all gone) and very underweight. While we've added some much needed pounds to her frame, Kimmy still attacks her food like it's her last meal and growls if another dog approaches the bowl. Her manners at taking treats leave much to be desired, also. If you aren't quick, you'll end up with nipped fingers. Kimmy isn't an aggressive dog and she's very people friendly but, because of her resource guarding and 'snatch and grab' tendencies, it wouldn't be a good idea for her to be in a home with small children. If there's another dog in the home, Kimmy should be fed in a crate or another room. Hopefully, once she realizes that she no longer has to worry about where or when her next meal is coming, her frantic eating will resolve itself but she's going to need some training for sure. We don't know what kind of life Kimmy had before being turned in but we doubt it was a very good one. It's just not food she's starved for, it's attention too. She gets so excited and wiggles all over the place the minute you let her out of her kennel. We're guessing Kimmy is around two years old so she's still young enough to have lots of energy but seems to have outgrown the destructive phase puppies go thru. She doesn't tear up her bedding or toys and she loves her cow hoof. The change in her demeanor from when we first met her until now is so heartwarming to see! Kimmy has so much love to offer and it's sad that her previous owners not only rejected that love but didn't even provide Kimmy with the bare minimum of care. If you want to give Kimmy the loving home she deserves, stop by our shelter and ask to meet her. She can't go to a new home until after she's spayed but we are taking applications on her now. Primary Color: Gold Secondary Color: White Weight: 9.8lbs Age: 3yrs 1mths 2wks I am available for adoption at the Animal Care Society.
