Tank, here! I won't be available to go to my new home until February 8th, but that doesn't mean we can't meet and fall in love in the meantime!
I am a happy, affectionate, meaty boy who hasn't met a dog or person I don't like! I love snuggling with my humans, wrestling with my foster dog siblings, and chasing my foster kitten siblings. My foster mom says I'm not supposed to do the third one, so we're working on that with commands like "gentle" and "leave it." But seriously, how am I not supposed to chase if they run!?
I bet you're thinking I sound pretty darn cool right about now, aren't you? Well, I'd have to agree but there is oneeee thing I still need to talk to you about. You see, when I came to KAR, I developed some serious separation anxiety. My foster mom has discovered the best way to keep me safe while we work on building my confidence with her leaving for work, is to leave me crated. However, if you crate me in a normal dog crate with no reinforcements, I will escape. My foster mom says she's never seen anything like it and calls me Houdini sometimes. I'm not trying to run away, just to come find you! If you put me in a room alone and close the door, I'll panic and use the bathroom and try to chew my way out. That's why I'll have to go to a home willing to invest in a strong crate that can hold me.
My foster mom is working really hard to build my confidence when left alone, but at this time, I'll need a home where someone is home more often than not and has another dog for me to play with. So that's me, Tank! Do you think I could be your forever dog? Put in an application and let's meet!

All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
