Kayon is an adorable, sweet little guy who is well-adjusted but still full of typical puppy spirit and energy. He has been taught dog behaviors and socialization from the resident dogs and we’ve exposed him to many situations, people, noises, etc. Kayon loves to play with all types of toys, with people, and with other dogs. He played for hours with a lab mix puppy his age on Easter.
Being a typical puppy, Kayon will bark and whine for attention or to get what he wants. We typically ignore this behavior and just check to make sure he is safe. Kayon is a very happy pup and knows the routine of our house. He is always willing to go in his nighttime crate and he settles down quickly after a treat. Kayon is food motivated, even though he’s a little thin, so additional training should be easy with him as he gets older.
We don’t usually crate Kayon when we’re gone – all of the dogs share an elevated, comfortable, climate-controlled area in the garage with a doggy door to the yard. Occasionally Kayon poops in the garage but he doesn’t go in the house. He walks fairly well on leash but could use a little more work on those skills.
Kayon is a very good boy who would make a great addition to any active family. We do, however, feel that he would do best in a home with a dog companion to keep him company and to play with.
***Kayon has a spinal abnormality in his lower lumbar spine that causes an odd hopping gait. He has a fused vertebrae and a lesion. The neurologist did not know if Kayon, as he gets older, will get better, worse, or stay the same, and did not think there were surgical interventions to address the issue. While in our care, Kayon has not changed. If you are interested in adopting Kayon, please ask your Adoption Coordinator to put you in contact with the Medical Coordinator before meeting him.***
