Sitter Needed: 11/19/21-11/30/21

Kenny is a sweet, affectionate boy who's very friendly with all the people he meets. He loves playing with his dog buddies in a playgroup, and he does adorable zoomies. Then he likes going for walks and walks very nicely.

This active, outgoing boy was a stray roaming outdoors when on the 4th of July he became spooked by fireworks. A person in a nearby house opened the door to take trash out, and Kenny pushed his way in. He was tired of life on the run and made himself at home with them. Such a funny story. The good Samaritans who took him in said he did well with their kids and is house-trained. He just does some minor resource guarding with his dinner. He's also a confident, smart boy who understands "sit" and is learning about "down."

Kenny is a cuddly boy who will love an active home with a family who can take him on those walks and adventures he enjoys. He is heartworm positive, but all that means is that he'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come meet him. He'll be so happy to move in with you!
