Meet Xena: Adopted!


XENA IS IN A FOSTER HOME. Please submit an online adoption application if you would like to meet her. Thanks!

Date of birth: 9/2013

2/2/2017: Xena is a very friendly 3 year old Pit Bull mix. She’s bright and energetic and a lot of fun. She's very playful and loves playing with toys. She loves chewing on nylabones and rope toys, and she loved playing with a huge plastic orange ball at the shelter and she pushes it all around the yard -- check out her video! She's very entertaining!! Xena also loves to go on long walks. She’d be a great match for an active person. Her foster moms says that she’s also very cuddly and loves to curl up in bed with her person.

Xena enjoys watching TV and barks at it if an animal (especially a dog) is on.  She then runs and gets her bone to show off to the TV! She also shows her bones to guests when they enter-- pretty cute!

Xena is house trained as long as you let her outside regularly. She’s not fond of her crate, but is crate trained. She hasn’t chewed up things besides her bones and toys. When Xena first came to the shelter, her skin and coat were in rough shape. She’s been on grain free food and now her coat is looking really good, so we’d recommend sticking with that. She loves to eat!

Xena likes other dogs but is kind of dominant, so if you have a dog we’d ask you to make an appointment to bring your dog in to meet Xana to see if they might be good buddies. She currently lives with another dog. She does need a home without cats. Xena likes to play with people and likes tug of war. She’s mouthy when she plays, so probably wouldn’t be good with small kids, but she lives with a 12 year old and does great.

Xena weighs about 45 lbs. She has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested for heartworms. She was a stray. She’s a lot of fun!


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!
