Kai is 2 years old and has been with his owner since he was a puppy. He was born in Hawaii in August 2016. Kai weighs 41 pounds and has been kept up to date on all of his health care. While Kai is crate trained, he is trusted loose in the house and sleeps in bed at night. This youngster is very bright and energetic and so far knows sit, drop, come, down and is housebroken. He is a super fast learner, gives great eye contact, loves to work with his nose, fetches balls, and loves to be by your side all the time. He walks well on a leash and is okay in the car. Kai loves people and has been around a toddler without issues. He loves back leg rubs, kisses, and ice cubes.

Kai is mostly good with other dogs but does resource guard his toys at time. He also can be ‘herdy’ and get in another dogs face during play. He does have some dog friends but would do best as an only dog. Kai is also a little reactive, barking at strangers or while waiting at the vet and sometimes at other dogs. It is unknown how he does with cats.

Kai’s owner has had several life changes and wants to find him the love, attention, training, care and environment that he needs. He just wants what is best for Kai. 

If you are interested in adopting this really cool, youthfully enthusiastic, active, smart boy and can provide him with the mental and physical outlets that he needs, please contact Maryland ARPH rep Amy  who is screening applications for the owner. Approved applicants only, please.
