Meet Kobe

Meet Kobe!

Kobe is a six year old, 55 lb sweet boy who deserves a loving home. Kobe was adopted from the Orange, VA shelter when he was just 9 weeks old, and was returned to that shelter at 6 years of age in September 2020. He was surrendered to the shelter for barking at the toddler in his previous home. This poor boy's world was turned upside down. He was then adopted in October 2020 and returned to us in July 2021 because he was not getting along with a new dog in the house. He was being protective of his owner.

He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and has been on preventatives. He is house trained and communicates when he needs to go outside to the bathroom. He absolutely loves pleasing people. He sleeps through the night in his crate.

He is a good boy, and loves people. He gets along well with other dogs in all other settings aside from his home. He loves to play fetch and to run around the year! He loves attention from people! Kobe really needs a large fenced-in yard when he can run and play fetch and get out his energy.

Kobe will need a home with breed experience. He is very smart and attentive. He knows sit and come. He is said to be good with cats, but has not been cat tested while at his foster home. Kobe will not be placed in a home with children under 10 years old.

Kobe is a very smart dog with tons of personality and a love of play and activity. Watch how expressive his eyebrows are when you talk to him and you can see how attentive and curious he is. He’s very treat-oriented, and loves meal times. He loves carrots, apples, and green beans, as well as peanut butter.

He’s very loyal to his people, but has some anxiety and will sometimes show aggression towards strangers. If one of his people has a chat with someone to show Kobe they are OK, and the new acquaintance gives him a few treats, he will most likely accept them, but on walks you may want to cross the street or re-route to avoid encounters with people he doesn’t know. He plays happily with other dogs at the dog park, but because of his loyalty to and adoration of his people, he will do better in a one-pet home. The larger the yard the better, and the more low-key the neighborhood, the better. People walking by, closing car doors, etc. can distress him.

He loves being in water, but not so much being sprayed with it. Walks through the woods and parklands are very interesting and enjoyable for him, especially if he can take a dip.
