Meet Kuma! Kuma is an adorable 3 year old Jindo mix. She is good with everyone she meets! Kuma has never once acted aggressively or barked at any person. She allows kids to gently pet her. She loves walks, hikes and the outdoors. Kuma also loves to chase squirrels outside in the yard.

Kuma has a sensitive stomach. She’s currently on Hills Science sensitive stomach chicken and barley kibble, plain boiled chicken and rice, chicken dog treats, and Pedigree DentaStix. She cannot eat any other boiled meats (e.g pork, hot dog) because it causes vomiting and diarrhea. 

She knows basic commands like “sit,” “stay,” and “come” and is food motivated, especially with boiled chicken. She would benefit from training with additional commands. She completed basic dog training courses in the past. 

Kuma’s ideal family would be one who can spend time to walk her at least one hour per day and bring her on occasional weekend hikes. We are looking for a home who understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a dog as a member of their family. Kuma is patiently waiting!
