Meet Kevin!
This is a sweet sweet boy who was left by his family in the North Seattle area. He is about 2 years old and 50 lbs.

He is staying with a foster at the moment with other dogs in the home. He respects their boundaries and is pretty good at relaxing, especially after a long walk. He’s a cuddly boy who is highly-food motivated.

He does very well on a leash whether you are walking or running. He loves to play with rope toys, and walk around with lovies in his mouth. It has been wonderful to see him get more comfortable and feel more secure in his new (temporary) home and be able to watch his personality come out!

I think Kevin would do best in a home with some previous dog experience, maybe even another dog in the home, to help him cope with the separation anxiety. I suspect he would do fine with kids, so long as he was introduced to the kids slowly and the kiddos know how to respect dogs’ space. The previous owner reported he did not do well with cats. He would love an active family who can take him on hikes and swims (I am not sure if he likes to swim, but he does like the garden hose!).

One family took him pretty early on and ended up bringing him back because he didn’t have any self awareness around their toddler. I am pretty frustrated about that because I think they misrepresented themselves and their savvy with dogs.

He is the SWEETEST boy. He has now been in my home combined for a few weeks and he has calmed down a lot. We are learning how to be in our crate, how to not counter surf, and basic commands. I have three dogs of my own who are (understandably) being a little territorial of their space and he is completely respectful (and a little bit of a weenie, being scared of my 20 lb dog). But he doesn’t have an ounce of aggression in him!
