Little Miss Kit Kat came to us with an injured dewclaw. Our vet decided to remove
it, as well as the other one, in order to prevent further injuries. She currently has
bandages on and is sporting an e-collar. She should be back on her paws by early
January. Otherwise, she is healthy and ready for adoption.
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
Her pictures dont do her justice. She is so pretty in person. Her coat is dark charcoal
blue with caramel brindle at the extremities. Rare and unique. She's a bit of a low-rider,
chunky body and has the cutest face.
Kit Kat is doing well at MPR shelter. She got the hang of her new routine quickly, even
though she was very unsure upon arrival. She keeps her inside kennel clean and uses
the doggy-door if she needs to potty. She is quiet in her kennel for the most part, but a
little curious when other dogs walk by her. She's not much trouble as of now and the
volunteers have been focusing on helping her become more comfortable in her new surrounding.
Kit Kat is timid in new situations and when meeting new people... but dont let that fool you. The're a happy goofball in there who cant wait to show-off her silly personalty. Give her a couple days to adjust and a fun-loving little clown emerges.
Kit Kat's energy level is medium, possibly a little more on the low side. She is submissive with people but a little dominant with other dogs.
She seems well behaved, although we are still in the process of getting to know her. As of now, we're only trying to help her come out of her shell and she's making big progress everyday. She's definitely turning into a real little doll!
Behavior with people:
Timid and reserved, especially with men, but making great progress. She needs solicitation, which the shelter environment is providing. She is meeting a ton of people and its greatly helping boost her confidence with humans. We cant tell yet if her timidity is genetically inherited, or due to bad experiences in her past or a combination of both. The fact that she's improving quickly indicates that there's a fun-loving little dog in there but she might always be somewhat insecure when meeting strangers or taken to new places.
Behavior with children:
As a general rule, shy dogs are not ideal in a home with small children. Young kids are not as adept at reading a dog's expressions and might not realize when Kit Kat needs her space. That said, Kit Kat has met children since being with us and did very well. In the right home, under the right supervision and with kids old enough to be comfortable around dogs and respectful of their needs, she might do well in a family with kids. Kit Kat has never growled or showed any sign of human aggression since being with us.
Behavior with other dogs:
Kit Kat's behavior with other dogs is "so-so". She's definitly not fond of other females. With males, it depends on compatibility. She might do ok with an older, more mellow male who'd let her be the queen. She would certainly enjoy being an only pet.
Behavior with other animals:
She knows a few commands already. Further training will come in time. Right now we're working on improving her social skills. She seems housebroken, although we have never seen her in a house. At the shelter she doesn't have accidents in her kennel or in the playrooms. We do recommend crating her when home alone as she is still pretty juvenile and has been known to shred a blanket or two.
She's cute as can be and her timid, yet funny goofball personality is very endearing. Her size and energy level would fit most lifestyles, provided her new family is not looking for a marathon runner. She has short little legs!
