Kya was brought to the SPCA after being abandoned. She is very sweet, high-energy and social. She loves being with her people and gets anxious when she is left alone for long periods of time. Her future guardian will need to be prepared to work on this slowly to get her used to spending time alone.
Kya loves going for walks and will lay at your feet waiting for the next adventure. She will need a home with a secure yard and nothing under 6 ft because she has a history of climbing fences when left unsupervised. Kya played well with her sister but when it comes to other dogs, she prefers them from a distance. She does not do well with small animals, so she will need to be the only pet in her home.
If you would like to provide Kya with a safe and loving furever home that she deserves, please submit an application online.
