Meet Kit

Update September 29th:

Kit has now been in our foster home for almost 5 months & recently visited a temp home, while we went out of town for a few nights, where she invited pets from her temporary fosters almost immediately. She is adapting much more quickly when taken to new places. She also attended an adoption event recently & met lots of people, and let many of them pet her. She will cautiously sniff new people & approach, but it will take her a bit to truly invite attention. She also is responding to the "come" command to get her leash or harness on, where a few months ago, she would run away from the leash the minute it came out. We moved her kennel, so had a bit of challenge re-orienting her to it, but she still goes in easily & is quiet when there. If Kit had her way, she would be outside all the time, but she knows colder weather is on the way, so more inside time will be inevitable.

This is Kit, she's a Doberman/Great Pyrenees mix born approximately 9/29/22. Kit has been with us for 3 months as of Aug 7th and is finally starting to open up a bit. She will now kennel on command & come inside when called. She still won't go near her food bowl if anyone is nearby & will accept some pets & love on the couch. She is very sweet, but will likely take many months or weeks before she truly allows a new owner to see her full personality. She is quite a barker outside & is on high alert at all times. She will definitely need a fenced in yard & must have a dog in her new home to follow & get confidence. A privacy fence is preferred, as she barks at people next door & sometimes charges the chain link fence. I believe it is her nature to protect, so this doesn't alarm me, but it can be pretty annoying. She does listen when told "no", in fact, she hears it a lot and knows the command well. She plays hard, but would be great with a larger calmer dog. She has not shown any aggression towards dogs but has developed a high prey drive, so no cats, birds, rabbits or other small pets will work. We have chickens & she wants to see how tasty they may be. She should be kenneled when left alone, during the day for work or at night. She nervously chews blankets or pillows/couch cushions if left alone for too long. She would be great to sleep on a bed or with you, as she does snuggle pretty well, but her kennel has been her safe space. She has not chewed on her dog bed while in kennel. She has never had an accident in the house or her kennel. She will hold it for up to 10 hours, as we learned when I got held up at work a few times. She will be the dog that impresses you with intelligence, and it will be a rewarding experience to see her change & improve. Every little thing as she opens up, is so fun to watch & celebrate! She will be 1 year old soon, and would love a forever home for her birthday!
