MOST URGENT DOG IN SHELTER - NEEDS EXPERIENCED ADOPTER OR FOSTER FOR RESCUE IMMEDIATELY TO SAVE HIS LIFE!!! SHELTER PLEA: We are coming to you on behalf of Kaipo, a neutered male, 1 å%BD year old ,and this is where I wish we had a Breed Identification DNA machine. He was originally put down as a Pit Bull mix and if that's the case, he's very petite and thin boned. Then someone said Vizsla, and again, it's possible with the coloring but still on the smaller side and not quite the right ears. I broke out the breed book and started looking. How about Whippet?... well he's not quite that thin boned but we're getting somewhere‰'Û|. Ibizan Hound?... closer but ears are still wrong and the nose is not long enough‰'Û|. I can say with 99% surety that he's a mix of some type and we are going to go with Vizsla mix. I do wish we had that machine‰'Û|. Maybe when we win the lottery but until then, it's best guess wins. Kaipo, we know the name because he was previously microchip and neutered but unfortunately, the owners did not update their information when they moved. Kaipo is a special case as he came in muzzled and freaked out. It took several days for him to overcome his fear. We could see he wanted to be friends but he wasn't quite ready. Finally, the time had come and we took him to the yard. He had a blast! He absolutely loves playing fetch, chasing the ball and scratching his back on the grass while getting tummy rubs. If he's not chasing a ball, he's belly up and wiggling. He is extremely athletic and can jump like nobody's business. As you walk by the kennels, there is a four foot solid wall where you can't see into the kennel or the pup can't see out but that poses no issues for Kaipo as he jumps high enough that we can see his whole body popping up over the walls height. Who needs a trampoline? Not Kaipo! Kaipo has a lot of energy, he wants something to do with that energy. He needs something to do with that energy. Pleeeeeease, give him something to do with that energy. He's not much of a cuddler, at least, not with us, here. Maybe under different circumstances. He is a really good boy who loves to play, run and jump. It hasn't been good for him when there are other dogs in the kennels next to him so we would recommend him to be in an only one dog home. We do not want to set him up for failure. Kaipo needs a home. He has been here for quite a while and is rescue or experienced owner only. Unfortunately, because he is so athletic and reactive, he is kept in an area where the public doesn't enter. It is really going to be hard to get him adopted while in isolation but it would be even harder if we brought him out and he acted all crazy dog and stuff. If you are willing to look past his non -cuddling and work with his jump jump jump around‰'Û| maybe try some agility, hiking, biking or even dock diving, he would have a lot to offer.
