Heeeere is the mama of The Littles, Koda! She is a beautiful Husky who is less than a year old, and she is a super sweet girl. She is looking for a foster-to-adopt home through Kenai Peninsula Animal Lovers (KPAL) Rescue. Before considering adding Koda to your family, please note that KPAL Rescue … has a mandatory adoption process in place which includes a background check and a home visit. More information on our adoption process can be found in our pinned post, please read that (and this adoption post) in their entirety – our process cannot be waived.
More on Koda – she knows sit and shake, and is perfectly potty-trained now. She’s quite shy at first, but very friendly, happy, and playful when she gets adjusted. She loves long walks and distance runs, and will get fussy if she doesn’t get enough of them. She walks/runs 1-4 miles a day with her current foster family. She is good on a leash, but also stays right with you off leash. She hasn’t chased cars, moose, or other dogs. She does, however, chase porcupines, snowshoe hares, and butterflies. There were other dogs at her last home, and she was fine with them. She is great with the kids in her foster home and with the neighbor kids. Her behavior with cats is unknown. She needs brushed every day and it will never be enough, but she seems to enjoy it. She hasn’t been kept in a crate recently because of her puppies, but she did well in a crate the night before her puppies, and sometimes goes in there on purpose, so she would likely be amenable to crate training. Although Koda just had a litter of puppies, given her age she is still quite a puppy herself – when left alone inside, she does still chew on things if unsupervised, so she will need further training to free roam if her new home wishes. She loves being outside but she is an escape artist so she will need a strong containment plan at her new home. Sometimes she gets really stubborn, but her foster finds that if you sit with her patiently and let her know what a good girl she is, she comes around. Koda (and her pups!!) have been fostered by Jenny and her family – we are so grateful for them. The foster-to-adopt home must be local to Kenai/Soldotna due to logistics. We expect the foster-to-adopt to last 4-6 weeks for Koda, at that time the adoption would be finalized.
KPAL Rescue dogs are fully vetted (vaccinated, microchipped, etc.) and spayed/neutered, there will be an adoption fee of $300 so that we can continue to help other animals in need. As always, donations are also very appreciated. Serious inquires only, please, and feel free to share.
Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered.
