Meet Kapua! She is a 1.5 year old german shepherd and husky mix. She has been with us for around 6 months and was originally only a foster. We have 3 other dogs with medical needs, so we want to find a home where she will be priority #1.
She is derpy, energetic and loves to play. She will do well with a runner or someone with a big backyard. She also loves to say aroooo during mealtime. Kapua also has excellent ears and makes a very good watch dog which helps our family feel safe.
Kapua came from a very abusive and neglected background. As a result, she is resource aggressive with other dogs and we do not recommend her to be housed with any other pets. She has not shown any aggression towards anyone in the house and we can safely put our hands in her food bowl during meal time. Before she came to us, she was stuck inside a very small apartment and rarely went outside.
She is very clever and food motivated. She will lead us to the fridge for some cheese when she believes she deserves it. Kapua knows basic commands and responeded well to clicker training in the past, but as the health of our other dogs declined we haven't been able to keep up with the training.
She is not spayed and has gone into heat once and may be due again in February. Since in our care she has gone to the vet twice for vaccinations. Kapua has anxiety during nail clipping time and only had success at the vet office.
We are worried she will not get the home she deserve, but we just can't keep her.
If you are interested in helping her enjoy life and feel loved, please contact us. A shelter is that last thing we want for her.
