Kitasa 1 yr old spayed female - CO
Kitasa is confident and energetic.
Kitasa is a 1 year old sweet puppy. She is 23 ½ inches at the withers and weighs 50 lbs. She is confident and energetic and would thrive in a home that would interested in doing a performance sport such as obedience, dock diving, or agility.
She is learning to walk nicely on a leash. She knows sit, down, stay, and come (to a limited extent), increasing the duration of all commands. Her come is pretty reliable in the back yard and at the fenced ball field. She has a great deal of prey drive and would most likely forget her obedience while in the pursuit of a squirrel.
She loves to be outside and loves to play. She plays fetch and tug and drops the toy when you say drop it without hesitation. She has a very cute personality as you can see in the following video…
Kitasa gets along with the foster mom's 3 male dogs of all sizes and age. She plays very rough, typical of a Malinois, but if the other dog sets boundaries she is respectful. Due to her high prey drive, she will not be placed in a home with cats or small dogs. She would do best in a home without small children because she could easily knock them down when she gets excited.
She is crate trained and settles nicely in the crate. She gets restless if she needs to go out but doesn't bark or whine. She does bark if the other dogs are playing or being excited. Otherwise she is a very quiet dog.
She could easily jump over baby gates in the house if she wanted but she respects the baby gates. She does not counter surf but if you are standing by the counter, she tries to put her feet up to be closer to you since she knows not to jump on you.
Kitasa has enormous potential. She is very sweet and affectionate and deserves a home where she will get lots of attention with someone who can provide structure and consistency and where her people love to get her involved in their lives and activities.
