About Kira

Adoption Fee: $30
Australian Cattle Dog / Pit Bull
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female

Kira is everything I've ever looked for in a dog. My roommate turned out to be extremely abusive to me, and scarily neglectful to Kira. My roommate has been threatening to 'get rid of her' since around a month after WE got her. (We both signed the adoption agreement). I've desperately tried everything I could to be able to keep her, but my roommate's abuse has led to me being evicted for 'speaking to her in a tone', while she literally laughed as she said 'Kira's never getting a home now'. I feel so guilty for ever bringing Kira around such a monster. I know it's my fault, I don't need reprimanding, I need this perfect dog to have a loving home. That's all I care about. Kira is very reactive while on a leash, she doesn't like to feel trapped/controlled in situations that make her anxious (such as seeing other dogs or having new people over. If you have a guest over, the best thing to do is give her a new bone or a pig ear right before/as the person comes over. Kira has only had issues with people my roommate brings over; she's stopped barking within 5-10 minutes with every single person I've ever brought over. She just needs things to feel normal, casual, and calm. She loves cats! Super gentle and good with my cats and my roommate's cat. Not as calm around dogs. If you have a dog already, Kira would do best with a dog that is non-reactive, very calm and gentle, and is not interesting in her. From what I've noticed, she get on pretty well with labs/goldens. She also loves my roommate's elderly Italian Greyhound, but is not a fan of my roommate's chihuahua. Kira is half Australian Cattle Dog, 20% pit bull, 20% staffy, and almost 10% boxer/border collie. She is extremely intelligent, loving and loyal to her family, energetic, protective, silly, derpy, perceptive, affectionate, and fun. If you are interested, all we have to do is go together on a ride with Kira and she will trust and love you for life. Especially if we drive to somewhere where we can all go on a nature walk. Children not ideal. I'm not sure about Kira's history because both the rescue and the original shelter lied about multiple other things. I think she was a parvo survivor, according to the shelter. She knows many tricks already- including sit, spin, tunnel (where she goes through your legs), shake, stay (when she's in the mood), lie down, crawl, and more. She would make a perfect agility dog, cart puller, protection dog, herder, freestyle dancer, hiking buddy, cross country/running partner, and so much more.
