Meet Kobe

Kobe is a 5 year old pit mix. He loves going for walks, playing with toys, going on car rides. He does have energy and needs structured exercise, but he can't go forever so if you're looking for a dog who can climb mountains with you, it's not Kobe.

He’s very friendly with the people he knows and trusts, but that list is short, and he is weary of strangers. He needs slow introductions to new people in order to warm up to them. Kobe will need an adopter that understands his need to take things slow, both with new people and new environments.

Kobe is dog selective. He is not a dog who you should be taking to the dog park or anywhere where there is loose, unstructured play with random dogs, but he will definitely do well living with another dog or having dog friends that he is introduced too properly that are of a good temperament. He does not like dogs who are super in his face or very physically rough. He also does okay with confident cats, as long as the interactions are monitored.

Kobe is well trained, knows basic commands, walks well on leash, travels well in the car and has pretty good manners around the house. He loves his crate as well and is totally house trained.

His ideal home is a home with one or two adults only and possibly another well balanced dog. Kobe is a follower and he will pick up another dogs bad habits, as well as bounce energy off of them. For this reason, he should live with a dog who is secure and even keeled, not anxious or a dog with behavioral issues. Whoever adopts him should be comfortable handling him and advocating for his space when necessary. He needs someones lead to follow. Because of his low confidence and general distrust of the world, he can make poor decisions when left to is own devices. That's where structure, rules and guidance will come into play to help him navigate the world around him! He will have lifelong training support, but needs someone who is open to our guidance and can follow our instruction.

-ANYONE under 18 lives in your home
-You have roommates
-You are against crates
-You are not open to balanced training/don't understand that training is an ongoing lifestyle and not just a singular event
