Kourtney is a very special young girl who has come all the way from Jamaica to find her forever home. She brings a sweet & compassionate energy to her foster home where she has made friends over the last year. Becoming accustomed to life not on the streets has been hard for Kourtney, but she is making progress every day. A life of routine & patience is what Kourtney is looking for in her forever family. She will do best in a positive minded home with older children (teens) & a fenced in back yard to chase tennis balls in the sunshine.
Kourtney's foster family says she establishes great companionship with other confident dogs which help her open up once she feels comfortable. Letting Kourtney just be a dog & not forcing her to be anything more than what she is safe with is the key to winning her trust. Kourtney is a treat & food driven hound. High value treats seem to give her enough encouragement to approach & possibly even paw for attention. She is smart, playful & entertaining to have around the house especially if you already have a dog who needs some friendship.
Kourtney will attach to their hip & pick up on the daily life activities quickly. To help Kourtney with a successful transition to her home, she will require a fenced yard (she is not quite ready for walking on a leash with a new family yet), and another dog to help her continue to gain confidence.
Kourtney is currently in a temporary foster home. To learn more about this special gal, please email email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
Spencer is a sweetheart!
