About Kakuna

Adoption Fee: $50
Schipperke mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Female

Kakuna is a 6 year old female Schipperkee Mix (approx. 10 lb) in need of a forever family. She is currently being fostered in Glenville, PA. She is housetrained and is low-medium energy. She prefers mellow dogs and cats. Living with young children makes her nervous, but they can visit. Kakuna has a medical condition called Tracheal Collapse. This condition can be typical of smaller dogs like her. It is managed with several medications as well restricting her exercise/activities which means she really truly is the ultimate couch potato. To read more about his condition and its treatment please follow this link This quirky fun little girl will need regular follow ups with a specialist to monitor her health. Our Kakuna is full of life and love, and is just waiting for a special person to share it with.Click here to see more of her. ***************************************************************************** This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable. Read about heartworm disease here: Read more about heartworm disease here here This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster's home, you may experience something different in your home. Learn more or apply to adopt at
