Hi! My name is Kiwi!

  • Mixed Breed
  • 4 months
  • Female

Weight (approx): 25 lbs and growing! I'm a puppy!

Energy: Medium - High! I am a puppy after all!

Children: Good

Dogs: Yes!

Cats: Yes! I live with two cats and I like to chase them but my foster mama says I am nice to them!

Health Notes:   Kiwi came into hart's care very ill.  She was rushed to the vet where her test for parvovirus was positive.  Parvovirus is a particularly deadly disease in young puppies, causing gastrointestinal tract damage and dehydration.  Fortunately, hart was able to provide the supportive treatments that saved her life - IV fluids, antibiotics, pain medication and anti-emetics.  Kiwi rounded the corner and has been eating well, playing hard and loving life since her recovery.  Some dogs that acquire parvovirus may suffer from long term sensitivities with their gastro intestinal system, but so far Kiwi has not demonstrated any issues.  Kiwi is up to date on DACPP, Bordatella, and is spayed and microchipped. It has been suggested that Kiwi receive her Rabies vaccine at 6 months and as such this vaccination will become the responsibility of the adoptive parent.

Ideal Home:   Kiwi will likely be a big dog. Her foster home says she will likely be over 50lbs at least and up to 100lbs, based on her growth so far so will not suit someone looking for a small or medium dog. She is young enough that I think any home with kids (big or small) would be good as she can grow up with them. She is good with cats and dogs so having some in the home would be a non-issue as well. She is a typically pup but currently is fearful on leash and doesn't enjoy walks. She will need someone who is willing to work with her on that as she will likely be a medium to high energy dog and need plenty of exercise.
