Meet Shiloh: Adopted!

5/10/2016: SHILOH IS CURRENTLY IN A FOSTER HOME.

Date of birth: 1/2011

3/5/2016: Shiloh is a fun, frolicsome and rascally Husky mix! He absolutely knows how handsome he is, and he's quite the ham! He’s 5 years old and weighs 84 lbs. He has one blue eye and one brown. Shiloh is a silly and very physical dog. He loves galloping about in the yard and jumping up in the air, and makes a game out of getting someone to chase him. He likes to roughhouse and he loves to chest bump! He’s a good match for someone who likes a dog to wrestle around with and be physical. BE SURE TO WATCH HIS VIDEO!

Shiloh had been severely injured when he was picked up by KCK Animal Control and transferred to us for care. It appeared that he'd been attacked by a dog. His left rear leg was ripped open with a horrible wound. He had many wounds on his head and neck. Our vets were not sure that they'd be able to save his leg because of tendon damage. But Shiloh made an unbelievable recovery! It’s truly amazing how he can run and play now after the damage done to that leg.

Shiloh keeps his kennel very clean and is most likely house trained. He is very playful outdoors, but he also has a calm side. He likes to be brushed, and he likes belly rubs, and he will absolutely sit all 83 lbs right on your lap! He’s very vocal like most Huskies. He does need a home without dogs or cats. We also don’t want to place him in a home with kids— he plays too rough. When you first meet Shiloh, he can still be a little sensitive to be touched on his neck and legs, which is understandable given how severely injured he was. But once he gets to know you then he becomes trusting and the fun begins!

Due to his size and strength, he’ll need a home with someone with dog experience who can handle a large and exuberant dog with a mind of his own. He’s a lot of fun and will be an awesome companion!

4/15/2016 Update: Shiloh is currently going through heartworm treatment. We can give you an update on where he is in his treatment plan if you are interested in meeting him.

MORE ON ADOPTING OUR DOGS...

Please visit our web site at HSGKC.ORG for more information about our adoption process, our adoption fees and all that's included, and for a pet adoption application.

> Our goal is to send you home with a healthy pet and any information and support you may need to help your new pet adjust to his or her new home. All of our dogs & puppies have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, treated for fleas & ticks, tested for heartworms (7 mo. and over), and are on monthly heartworm preventative. Puppies who are too young to receive all the necessary puppy boosters and/or first rabies shot may be brought back to us for those vaccines at no extra charge. You will also receive a leash, collar, coupons for pet supplies and services, toys, and educational materials. And we'll give your dog a bath before he or she goes home!

> Please note that we prefer and may require a fenced yard for many of our dogs. Exceptions are made on an individual basis depending on the dog's needs, the person's dog experience, the dog's and person's activity levels, home environment and other factors.

> An application is required to adopt a pet and applicants must meet our adoption requirements. If you decide you'd like to adopt one of our dogs, we reserve the pet for you but we generally don't send the dog home with you that same day.

Thank you for searching for a shelter pet!
