Kiki is a seven year old neutered GSD cross. She has been in rescue for six years and has been kennelled the entire time. She was at another rescue that closed before she came to New Hope and has been with us well over a year now.
Kiki is initially reactive to strangers, she will ignore people when she’s out now and is comfortable with their presence but would rather be left alone by those she doesn’t know, however in her kennel is very reactive to new people. She has got the capability to bond with anyone, you need to be confident with her but walks and her ball win her heart.
She is extremely well bonded to myself and kennel staff and we can do anything with her.
Kiki is very well muzzle trained and enjoys being walked off site, and off lead no problem in our paddocks, she can spend time with other dogs but can be initially reactive. She likes to get to know dogs and socialisation must be directed by a handler that she trusts and listens to. I’ve even used her on dogs tests but I know she would have reacted differently with a handler she didn’t have confidence in.
Kiki has never lived in a conventional home but may manage in the right hole with the right people, she is getting on now, she may do well in an alternative environment where she had space and independence with the right carers to give her just the right amount of affection and direction.
She is older but is still very active and lots of fun.
She is such an amazing girl and as much as she will always have a place with us I hope there is more for her out there, particularly as she is getting older, a person or people to call her own and that one on one attention that she craves from those she loves.
Kiki will take a while to warm up to anyone new but when you have her she adores you with everything she’s got.
I just want more for her. If there is anyone out there who thinks they might be that anyone please get in touch.
PLEASE NOTE KIKI IS WITH ANOTHER RESCUE SO IF YOU ARE INTERESTED YOUR DETAILS WILL BE PASSED ON ACCORDINGLY.
