If Kenzo's handsome face didn't already have you hooked, wait until you read more about this sweet boy. Kenzo comes all the way from Turkey after being surrendered by his prior family. Our rescuer in Turkey took him in and he then made his freedom flight all the way to America. How anyone could give him up puzzles us too. Kenzo is a very affectionate boy who loves to snuggle. He is gentle with all people, including children, and loves to be pet. The vet thinks he is still growing and will ultimately gain a little bit of weight before being full grown.
A typical, energetic pup, Kenzo enjoys playing fetch and getting his zoomies out, and would do best in a home with a large fenced yard that he can access throughout the day. He loves to be outside and explore. He also loves car rides. Kenzo is a very strong boy who will pull on the leash and will need a harness (and someone with strong biceps), since he is easily distracted by squirrels, among other things. An active family willing to walk him multiple times a day and take him on longer hikes on the weekends would work best for him, however, he is not ready to be taken off leash in an open area.
At home, Kenzo wants to be near his people at all times, so he will follow you throughout the house and try to get you to pet him whenever possible. Although he is crate-trained, he likes to be in the same room as his family and needs to sleep where he can see them. Kenzo is generally potty-trained, but consistency with his schedule and outside time is important.
Kenzo is still learning basic obedience skills, but is a very eager learner and extremely food motivated. He has shown great improvement in the short time he's been here, and is such a smart boy. Kenzo gets along with other dogs, but will guard his toys in his home. However, Kenzo is not an alpha dog in any way and will quickly submit to other dogs, even small ones. Kenzo will need a committed family who will work with him to share his toys properly! Kenzo has so much love to give to his forever family and is eager to find a family that will cherish him in the way that he deserves.
If you are interested in adding immeasurable joy and laughter to your life Kenzo may be the dog for you!
