Kinley is an approximately 1 yr old female Boykin with a beautiful coat, long legs and weighs a perfect 38 lbs. Found as a stray, she came to her foster family with no socialization or manners, but has learned all sorts of good behavior and commands. She is a very energetic, curious happy and playful Boykin.
Although still a wild child, Kinley honestly wants to do the right thing and learn to be a good Boykin. With the help of some private training she is learning the basic commands, now likes her crate, sleeps quietly all night long. She is learning not to run and jump when free inside. Easily excitable, she is still a bit of a bull in a china closet as she doesn't realize her own strength and sometimes is not aware of objects around her. She is learning to walk on a leash but still pulls in an effort to explore things new to her. She responds nicely to a calm, firm and patient approach. Strong treatment and raised voices have a negative effect.
She is respectful of other dogs, but is untested around children and cats. She enjoys being outside with her foster canine siblings but is not happy left outside by herself. What she enjoys most is working with her humans in structured activities and training.
The ideal home for Kinley would be someone physically strong and patient, who can give her a job and plenty of exercise. A commitment of time and resources to continue work on obedience lessons is essential for her. A calm and quiet household would be best, with another calm, non-dominant dog.
