Dog of the Week: Boogie

Julia D Dog of the Week

Boogie (AKA Kona) is a sweet young girl who loves to smother you with kisses. She was extremely timid at first but she’s really come out of her shell! Her favorite things are running around and exploring outside and wrestling with her big brother in her foster home! Due to her pack hunting heritage, she needs lots of exercise and would thrive in a house with a fenced-in yard as well as a brother or sister to play with. Socialization is a must with this breed! She currently lives with two large breed dogs, one female and one male and she does well with both of them. So far she doesn’t particularly enjoy being on a leash and prefers to run freely in the fenced backyard. She thoroughly enjoys her freedom but in time with good training, she should be able to learn how to walk with a leash. She’s potty trained and has learned sit and lie down. She needs a gentle handler who will be patient with her as she can be very stubborn and will only respond well with positive reinforcement. She’s very food motivated so that should help with training. She is still young and has puppy tendencies so she’s learning what are toys and what she is not allowed to chew on. Shoes tend to be her favorite “toy.” Kona has been trained to stay off furniture in her foster home. She will need kennel training and cannot be left out when her humans are not home. Kona is a gentle, submissive pup who will make a great family dog!

Boogie’s adoption fee is $300 and includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.
