About KOA

Adoption Fee: $375
Chihuahua / Jack Russell
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

KOA'S story is gut wrenching. He was found abandoned and bleeding to death after his tail was ruthlessly cut off. This little guy is still just a puppy at only 7 months to a year old, but his short traumatic past will leave some physical and mental scars. His tail has been mended by the vet, but because it was cut so short, he experiences phantom nerve pain and also has sometimes night terrors. We are regulating this pain and trauma with gabapentin which seems to be working well for him. He will run around and play, but will randomly screech if not on medication. We think he probably spent most of his young life living in crate prior to being abandoned, as this is where he is most comfortable as of now. We are hoping someone patient and understanding will come along and help reshape this boy's future so that he can begin to leave his past behind. KOA weighs about 12 lbs. and is a chi mix. He is very grateful to be safe and cared for in foster care now, and day by day he is beginning to relax the feeling of being safe. DOG and CAT friendly! Neutered/Vaccinated.
