Once upon a time, there was a shy princess named Kenzy who dreamed about a cozy home with loving people who would help her sparkle and thrive. It's me: I'm Kenzy! I started my young life as stray in Texas trying to survive on my own, so I am very shy during new experiences - but I am trying to be brave and come out of my shell! My foster momma says she is so proud of the progress I have already made. It will take me some time to settle in and feel safe, so my ideal adopters will be patient and comforting. But you will be richly rewarded once I am comfortable enough to let my amazing personality out: I am playful and silly and love snuggling with my family when I am tired out from all our fun! I enjoy playing with toys (especially squeaky ones!), romping around with other dogs, and rolling over for belly rubs. It would be a big bonus to have a doggie friend in my forever home who can show me the ropes of my new life, but for now I think I would do best in a family that doesn't have young children until I gain more confidence. I have a lot to learn, but am eager to please and very treat motivated (I loooove food!), so training should be a fun and enriching experience for us both. My adopters will be required to sign me up for training classes - as all adopters of young dogs like me are required to do - and I think the socialization at class will really help me blossom. I am potty trained and mostly crate trained (I don't love going in it, but I settle down after a couple minutes), but am still working on my leash-walking skills and remembering that I should only chew my toys. I hope you can see past my initially shy first impression to see the beautiful gem I am meant to be! Once I know you, I love with my whole heart and I cannot wait to share that love with you!

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.
