Meet Kim
Sweet Kim arrived in mid-August 2018 when her person wasn't able to keep her. Kim looks to be a golden lab/hound mix, with a charming docked tail and the most soulful of eyes. She's about seven years old and world weary. She is shy, not aggressive in any way, just uncertain. It seems that life hasn't been kind to her and she's had to protect herself from people wishing to do her harm. She wants to get to know people, but really doesn't know how to go about doing so. She barks from a short distance, but her tail is wagging the whole time as if to say "I like you, but I don't know what you might do to me so I'll admire you from a distance." Shelter staff and volunteers have been working on building her confidence and socialization skills by spending time with her.
She's come a long way being in a caring environment. She loves walking and has her nose to the ground enjoying all the smells the woods as to offer. She can be a strong walker, but she is good on a leash. She seems to relish the freedom of the outdoors and dreads the confinement of her kennel. Given how shy she is we have not introduced her to other dogs or cats yet and we think children will frighten her. Kim would do best in a quiet home filled with kindness, patience and lots of love to help build her confidence and show her the world is a good place. Kim is so sweet and has so much potential. With the right person or persons, she will blossom and be your forever companion.
Before being adopted, we'll ensure Kim is spayed.
