Description

Khali was taken to the shelter as a stray, her family was found but they no longer wanted her.  Their loss, as Khali will find a family that will love and care for her for her lifetime.  She obviously has had no training, she is jumpy and can be mouthy.  She has lots of energy that needs to be channeled with exercise of both her body and mind.  Training is imperative as it will teach her impulse control, manners and help build confidence.  Be prepared for lots of exercise as you spend time burning hers.  She lived in her previous home with another dog.

Khali did arrive in our care with a visible change to her elbow which is causing her foot to turn out.  Records indicate she underwent elbow surgery in 2018.  She will be seen by our vet to check if she healed properly from the surgery.

Updates

Khali was seen by a MAGSR veterinarian who noted the left front leg paw turns out laterally, but Khali presented pain free, weight bearing, with no limping, with no mobility issues. The vet reported that Khali is happy, healthy and ready to go. Khali is very sweet and thinks she’s small enough to be a lap dog. She is so happy to see her humans, loves human contact and will happily give her humans kisses. Khali wants to be her humans’ shadow. Khali was really excited with tail wags to see kids playing, but with social distancing, she hasn’t had a chance to meet them up close and personal yet. Khali has a higher energy level, as most young dogs do, and really loves to play and loves her chew toys, and understands that the toys are the only things she can chew on. Khali needs a family who is going to burn her energy by exercising and playing with her. She doesn’t much like the resident cat, so likely would do better in a home without a cat. Khali is ready for her fur-ever home – if that home could be yours, ask to meet her!

Khali is doing great in her foster home. Khali enjoys walks and will definitely benefit from training, as she needs some work on her leash skills. Khali loves to go places and goes straight for the car when she knows she’s going somewhere. Khali has been doing great with two of the three resident cats, because she learned very early on not to mess with those two because they swatted her when she arrived. The third cat is a little less confident to put Khali in her place, so when they lock eyes and the cat starts running, Khali will start to stalk and chase her – this too is being worked on via corrections from her foster mom when she exhibits this behavior. Khali has some prey drive outside on her walks and will chase all those fun wild animals if given the opportunity. Khali can be territorial and protective, which her foster mom is working on with her. When Khali’s humans come home, she plows towards them and gets really excited. She sometimes jumps and nips from excitement and the desire for attention, which is also being worked on. However, due to this behavior, Khali may be better suited for a home without small children as she may accidently hurt them. Khali loves to play and cuddle – her favorite game is fetch, and she’s decent about dropping the ball in her foster mom’s lap or hand. While Khali loves to play and is high energy, due to her old injury, she is not a good fit as a running partner – she’s better at running to play instead. Khali is very much aware of her surroundings – she comes to look for her foster family to know where they are and also frequently checks back to her humans on her walks. If Khali sounds like she could be a good fit for your family, ask to meet her.
