Kira is a black lab/blue healer mix who loves to play fetch, snuggle up at the foot of the bed, and is well trained in basic commands. She knows sit, lay down, wait, down, up, and gentle when taking a treat from your hand. She's a funny girl with lots of energy to go hiking, run after a chuck it ball and chase a frisby. She bonds to one person strongly and then warms up to the rest of the family a short while after that. Kira is nervous around new visitors but not aggressive. She's affectionate with her humans, but isn't open to pets from just anyone. And boy is she happy to see you when you get home! Kira needs a home with older kids who understand boundaries as she does resource guard her favorite toy or bones.
