This is Kovu. This stunning 6yr German Shepherd/Husky mix is looking for a very special home in the Dallas or 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 in the house and he is great 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! Kovu is looking for a pack, dogs that are sweet and will show him that people are too! He’s made so much progress that he even does ok on a leash now but he tries to avoid others walking. Kovu has a bark but really only uses it when it’s dinner time or he just got let 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’s 6 it could be years, or possibly never, that he reaches the point of wanting that much attention. Kovu is looking for a special someone that will love him for who he is, a sweet soul
Kovu is not for everyone but he is for someone!
