Look at that face and those ears! Mya’s personality will charm you just as much as her looks! She is quite endearing. She loves to lay on you, be near you, and follow you around devotedly. So she can flop in your lap to soak up all the attention. She just loves all people. And is always jumping with joy to meet anyone new (we are working on that).
Mya will also keep you on your toes with her endless energy and demand for attention. She requires an active home with knowledge of the breed that has plenty of time to devote to positively directing her energy, continuing with her training, and snuggling her!
She is an energetic, confident and dominant dog. While she does get along with other dogs her intense personality has caused clashes at times over both food and resources and it is recommended that she be the only dog in a home, but have the opportunity for play dates and visits with dog friends often.
Mya’s best fit fur-ever family would be busy, active family with older children that is committed to training, has breed experience, and space for her to be active (a fenced yard is ideal). She would make a great running buddy or candidate for agility classes/work with is speed and skill. She needs the perfect mix of affection and activity and a strong pack leader to keep her energy in check. We have fallen in love with her and been working hard on her training the past month. Please apply if you believe your family would be a great fit for Mya’s fur-ever home.
Emily is her foster parent. The adoption fee for Mya is $325, please complete our online application formspeak to a volunteer if you are interested in adopting Mya. A volunteer will contact you.
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!
