In Japanese the meaning of the name Kichi is: One who is lucky.
Little Kichi hit the jackpot the day she was confiscated along with 24 other dogs, from an awful situation of abuse and neglect. The case made the news in Kansas City as the dogs condition was so upsetting. Luckily, this precious doll is now in MPR's care, living it up in a dedicated foster home.

More French Bulldog than APBT, Kichi is only about 35-40 Lbs. She has the most hilarious underbite and the cutest little face. Her personality matches the outfit too. She is one funny little clown, who still cant believe her luck to have been rescued from the nightmare she was captive of.
Kichi is currently fostered in a home with 2 adults, 3 teenagers and 2 other pit bull foster siblings. Kichi loves to chase her foster dog brother around the yard and will snuggle with him during nap times. She would do well as an only dog (as she likes the attention) or with another male dog.
Kichi was quite unsure of everything when she first arrive in our program but she has overcome many fear since she began her journey in foster care. Fears such as scary monster "doorways" for example. She's a work in progress but to see her learn to love life is very rewarding considering the hell she came from.
Foster parents are working on cuddling but she loves to be pet and will roll on her side for belly rubs. She loves meeting new people and will greet everyone at the door. Her behavior around small children is unknown but she does great with school age children.
Kichi doesn't pay much attention to the neighbors cat. She will give it a once over then continue chasing her foster dog brother.
Behavior with people:
Kichi is just fine with meeting new adults. She will run up to anyone she sees with tail wagging. Hard to believe she was badly mistreated at the hand of humans before. It's all behind her already and she is thrilled to finally be able to have human friends.
Behavior with children:
Her behavior around small children is unknown but she does great with school age children. There are three teenagers in her foster home and Kichi loves interacting with them.
Behavior with other dogs:
Kichi gets along great with her 2 foster dog siblings. They are both bigger than she is but she enjoys keeping up with them around the yard. She has met our neighbors dog through the fence and has no issues.
Behavior with other animals:
She is curious about our other pets (tortoise and bearded dragons) but no aggression whatsoever.
Kichi is learning "sit", "down" & "kennel" and will do most anything for a small treat and rub behind the ear. We are working on kennel training. Kichi is housebroken and sticks to chewing on her toys or her foster dog brother, who doesn't seem to mind. Kichi is very responsive to small treats and kind words.
Kichi has an adorable underbite that makes her look like she is pouting even when her tail is wagging like crazy. She is a sweet happy girl who's still learning about the world with amazement. She looks cuter in person and her small size makes her the perfect companion to just about any living situation, including apartment or small house. She's adorable and to meet her is to love her.
