No Small Kids
Name: Kalani
ID: 43526310
Breed: Retriever, Labrador / Mix
Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 5 years 11 months
Size: Medium
Location: Awaiting Foster
FOSTER REASON: Trust Building and Socialization - Kalani is still working on a few things like leash walking and her confidence. A foster home will progress enough to be ready for adoption!


ABOUT KALANI: Kalani originally came to the SPCA of Texas on New Year's Eve of 2019 along with about 20 other dogs from a property where they had very little human interaction. With such a rough start in life, Kalani came to us frozen in fear, unable to walk on leash and avoiding contact with people. However, with a lot of love, patience, and care from staff, Kalani has progressed to allowing some petting and scratches, taking treats by hand, and being more comfortable with walking on leash! She still gets overwhelmed sometimes and will need a patient home who can give her time to acclimate and adjust. Kalani enjoys spending time outside, playing with other dogs, and is a real sucker for hot dogs and canned chicken!

IDEAL HOME: Kalani needs a calm and quiet environment in a home with a securely fenced yard. She also has a history of ingesting inappropriate items and so needs a "puppy proofed" space. Kalani needs to be carefully monitored to prevent this behavior and crated when supervision isn't possible.

KIDS: Teens 15 years and up or Adult Only home please!

DOGS: Kalani LOVES playing with other dogs and having a friendly, confident dog in the home to help her adjust is a requirement.

SPECIAL NOTE: While not yet available for adoption, Kalani is eligible for foster-to-adopt.
