Status: Up for Adoption
Breed: Greater Swiss Mountain Dog mix
Age: 8 years and 1 months
My name is Kayla and I am a female Swiss Mountain Dog mix. I didn't have a great start in life. I went into a very high kill shelter as a stray and was lucky to get out alive – FOHA saw how beautiful I am and arranged for my trip to Northern Virginia.
I recently completed a 4 week training class and I was very impressive - if I do say so myself! Now I need someone to adopt me who will continue to work with me both on obedience training and socialization with other dogs. I have tons of energy and I love to play but I can play a bit hard, so little children are probably not a good fit. I spent a bit of time at home with a volunteer before I came to FOHA, I get the housebreaking thing and I just need some more time to sort out those inside the house stuff like stairs and mirrors. But once I have had time to run and play, I will settle in and be very affectionate. If you are an experienced dog owner who has the time and energy to work with me, I might just be the girl for you!
Given that I have entered my golden years, I am eligible for FOHA's Senior Care Program. Inquiries can be directed to Rob Mock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This dog can only be adopted within the Washington D.C. metro area.
