Meet Kylo

Meet Kylo: The Spirited Collie/Newfie Mix!
Breed: Collie/Newfie Mix
Age: 6-7 years
Weight: 70 pounds

Kylo is not your typical senior—she's a 70-pound ball chaser with a heart full of energy! She knows commands like sit, shake, down, and stay, showcasing her intelligence.

Kylo is a social butterfly who believes personal space is overrated—she thinks she's a lap dog and loves being close to her human. Despite her age, she enjoys walks and playtime with her favorite toys. Her ideal home is an active one that understands the balance between her love for activity and the realities of aging.
While she's good in the car with a seatbelt and walks nicely on a leash, she does have some quirks. Kylo prefers to be an only child, so a home where she's the only pet is ideal. She's been known to chase away squirrels and birds, showing off her protective instincts.

Kylo is a vocal companion, barking at strangers and howling when she's lonely. She warms up quickly with attention but may need time to adjust to new male friends. Her foster home includes a bearded husband, and they've become best buddies.

This diva has a beautiful, flowy coat that requires regular brushing—she's a bit of a shedder, but it's a small price to pay for the love she'll bring to the right family. Kylo would thrive in a home with experienced pet parents, preferably without young children under 10 due to her sensitivity to loud noises.
