KERIYON (“K”) is quite the gentleman. He is great with people. Everywhere he goes folks adore him. The shelter said he was a great dog, the vet called his fosters, who they know quite well, and recommended we take him into rescue, and the groomer commented on how good he was for them. They were all smiles when his foster dad picked him up. “K” gets along well with other dogs and seems neutral with cats. Our dog savvy cats are not afraid of him.
KERIYON had every reason to be ornery when first picked up as a stray, as he was very thin and covered in fleas. Despite all this, he took everything in stride. His lack of enjoyment at being bathed 2 times per week was counterbalanced with getting to eat 3 times per day, which he LOVED! The boy was HUNGRY. He has gone from a scrawny 37 lb. mess to a soft-coated, healthy looking 48 pounds in just a couple of months.
“K” sits for treats and pets. KERIYON is very respectful, waiting to be invited up on the couch, where he sits, and ultimately lays down for pets or to settle in with his favorite toy (Grinch). He is very food motivated, willingly going in his crate, mostly because meals or treats are involved. Often K can be found there, door opened, just relaxing. He is well-behaved in his crate during down time and sleeps quietly all night. His recall is good but if distracted sometimes needs to be called a second time. K is a bit of a barker, mostly outside when he and the other dogs see visitors at our park next door. But if we are out with him barking is minimal.
KERIYON is house trained with no accidents in the house since his arrival. “K” is prone to car sickness, though we have experienced this before and with time, fun trips, and some desensitizing he may be able to get over it. He is well suited to having another canine friend or two, or perhaps be a tad happier as the only dog to rule the roost, thus getting all the attention and love. KERIYON would be a fine addition to any family.
