Meet Kuma

Hi, my name is Kuma! Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Curious, adventurous, independent, aloof
-Can Live with Kids: At this time, we are recommending an adult-only home
-Can Live with Cats: Unknown history, will need slow, supervised intro
-Can Live with Dogs: Yes, introduction done here at WHS
-Can do Apartment Living: No, was an outdoor only dog in previous home.
-Potty Trained: Appears to be!
-Bite History: None, however the previous owner noted that she snaps at strangers
-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Yes, 1-3 private lessons, depending on adopter experience,
-Energy Level: High
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Nope!
-Additional Information: Kuma is an independent dog who did not have much socialization with humans in her previous home. She was kenneled outside for all 6 years of her life most of the day and only taken on walks a few times a week. For this reason she will need continuous positive reward based training to learn appropriate indoor behavior and how to walk on a lead. Kumas previous home noted that she is protective of her space (in-kennel) and has snapped at strangers in the past. She will likely bond very closely and be loyal to "her person". She would not be suited for homes with frequent visitors, or a family with a busy social life. Kuma's ideal home is out in the county with fenced acreage and "homebody" adopters. If Kuma sounds like a good match for your lifestyle, the first step is to fill out an adoption application.
