Happy new year! I'm Kaya, and I am a sweet and quiet young lady who would love a calm home with a loving family who will help me gain confidence. My favorite activities include lounging next to my people on the couch, going for leisurely strolls around the neighborhood, and chewing on all the durable toys I can get my paws on. I get along with other doggies and kitty cats, and do best with human kiddos who are old enough to understand that I can be skiddish and need time to settle into my new life and feel safe. Once I am comfortable, I love hanging out with my fam and would prefer a home where someone is home more often than not. I am working hard on potty and crate training, and would thrive with adopters that will sign me up for training classes where I can learn even more. My new years resolution is to keep blossoming into a confident girlie with a patient family who will provide me with lots of love and snuggles. If that could be you, I hope you fill out an adoption application today!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
