Kuji came to IDR+ after he was surrendered to a shelter in SC. The face wound on some of his early photos is from his small dog roommate at the shelter. Kuji didn’t fight back when the little dog was hurting him as they were doubled up in a kennel run. We often get asked if our dogs are good with kids, but we have to ask if the kids in question are good with dogs. In Kuji’s case, the resident grandkids were allowed to pull his ears and act inappropriately with him, so instead of showing children the right way to act around a dog, Kuji lost his home for the past 8 years. By the looks of the sores on his body, he probably spent a lot of time lying on concrete, so he is hoping for a nice dog bed inside. Kuji has a beautiful gait, and we enjoy watching him glide across the yard and then ungracefully plop to the grass and roll around. The SC shelter reported him not being a fan of other male dogs, but not being neutered will contribute to that attitude. We can place Kuji with a nice female instead once he is fully vetted. He passed the cat test, and he can be placed with older kids who know how to act around dogs. He needs some practice walking nicely on the leash because he is big and strong. But he’s also a big softie when he squeaks his favorite Wubba toy to comfort him.
