This is Kovu. This sweet soul is a German Shepherd/Husky mix and is looking for a very special home in the Dallas/Houston Metro areas.
Backstory: Kovu and his puppies were a severe abuse case. The owners had locked them up in a house for months without food or water. Kovu’s wife was a husky and a husky rescue took her and we took Kovu and puppies. The puppies have since found their forever homes. Kovu, however, needed more help with human socialization. He has come a long way with his foster.
Kovu is 6 yrs old, up to date on vaccines, neutered, microchipped, housebroken and crate trained. He LOVES other dogs and has gotten along with every foster that has come into the house. Kovu is excellent with puppies, but he has no cat experience. Kovu also has no kid experience. So a home with "older dog" savvy kids, or no kids, would be best. Kovu likes to play tag with his person, once he’s comfortable with you. He does like giving kisses and he is treat motivated! This handsome boy is looking to be a member of a pack, His foster feels Kovu would do great with a pack of friendly dogs who can continue showing Kovu that not all people are bad. Kovu has made incredible progress at his foster home and does ok on a leash now but he tries to avoid others while out for walks. Kovu has a bark but really only uses it when it’s dinner time or when he gets to go outside and is excited!
👉 Here's the "very special home" part. Kovu is not a social butterfly as far as humans go. His foster can pet him, but Kovu gets no enjoyment from it. Kovu is not a snuggle dog and since he is 6- it could be years, or possibly never, that he reaches the point of wanting that much physical attention. Kovu is looking for a special someone that will love him for who he is.
Kovu is not for everyone, but we are certain his match is out there!
