From the Foster:


If you’re looking for a big love bug, Kona is your girl! Wherever you go, Kona is sure to be nearby. She has a curious, playful side and enjoys exploring the yard and chasing a ball. She also likes her down time - a good nap, sitting next to you on the couch or leaning into you for some pets. 


It takes Kona some time to warm up to other dogs. In her forever home, she needs to be the only dog or with a family who will be patient and do very slow introductions. Ideally, she will have a fenced yard so that walks are not her only form of exercise. She gets sassy and barks at new dogs. Her forever family will need to be committed to working with her on this. When a dog passes by our front window, she is able to be redirected away from barking with treats. I do think with patience and positive training, she will make great progress. Despite this quirk, Kona is an amazing dog. 


Kona loves people and wants to be loved in return! She’s house and crate trained and does fine when left out of her crate. She knows some basic commands like sit, shake, lay down, off and come (not that come is a challenge since she likes to follow us everywhere!). An obedience    class would be great, both for bonding with her new family but also so she can learn more. She does well with my respectful 4 year old, but she doesn’t always pay attention to where her body is and could knock a small child down. 


Kona is excited to find her forever family who will love her as much as she loves them!
