Meet Kiana, a petite Blenheim girl who is almost 2 years old and weighs about 13 pounds. She was an owner surrender whose new living arrangements did not allow for dogs. Kiana is up to date on vaccinations, is heartworm negative, microchipped and recently spayed. During her spay, a small hernia was found and repaired. A minor heart murmur was detected but not a health threat, and seems in very good health.
Kiana is a very sweet girl, a bit timid, and wary of men and small children. While in foster care, she has benefited from having a more confident dog to buddy up with. She seems to get along with other dogs, but likes to chase cats. Having people around her almost all the time has helped Kiana be less anxious. She has a more normal schedule which allows her to go outside on numerous walks. She loves being outside and explores almost every bit of space around her, and will break into a run just for the joy of it or roll in the grass. Her appetite has improved, especially with her person nearby for encouragement.
This girl is completely house trained and crate trained. She needs her crate in her person’s bedroom at night so she knows she’s not alone, although she would be happy on a bed if given that opportunity. She wants to be in her person’s lap or beside them as much as possible, but is happy in a dog bed if her person is near. Kiana will alert you if she sees or hears anything unusual, including thunder.
As Kiana has become more relaxed in her foster home, her personality has become more evident. She loves playtime, with a little hand nuzzling and belly rubs. She is a very happy girl, full of love and energy. Her ideal forever home would be with a female as her ‘main person’ (who is home most of the time), a fenced yard, no cats or small children, and possibly another dog that would provide her some confidence and companionship. Kiana wants and deserves a lot of love and attention, and she wants to return it as well to her human.
