Kissyfur is a tiny ball of love! He is a happy-go-lucky pup who loves to meet new people and get as many cuddles and belly rubs as he can. He is very affectionate, and is his human little shadow, following them all over the house. Kissyfur loves to meet and play with other dogs of all sizes, but he is also excited to play independently. He likes to run around chasing leaves outside or play with his toys in the house – his favourites are chewy toys, but he sometimes forgets which are his toys and which are not. Some gentle redirection to his toys will help him learn not to chew things that are not for him.
When Kissyfur is all done playing, he loves to cuddle up next to his humans for a nice nap – sleep is after all one of his favourite activities. His crate provides him with a sense of comfort and safety when he needs a little break. Kissyfur is trying really hard to learn how to ask to go outside and is getting better with it. He is unable to do stairs, so can be challenging to ask to go outside when he can’t reach the door on his own.
He has been working hard on learning how to walk on a leash and is approaching mastery on this one! Kissyfur spent a lot of time in a kennel before he came to Canada, and as a result has some wounds on his tail and ears that are healing up nicely with the help of some nice soothing cream and antibiotics – he will be back to 100% cuteness in no time!
This little bundle of fun can’t wait to meet his new forever family and shower them with love and cuddles – all he asks is for you to play with him and give him those belly rubs as often as possible.
