#2004 Kakuna

Adoptable
Small-size, Female, Adult Schipperke,
Kakuna is up-to-date on her shots and has been spayed. She is a special needs dog and is best in a home without small children. Kakuna is currently being fostered in Glenville, PA.

Hello! I’m Kakuna but my foster family calls me Louise or Weezy! I’m a 5 year year old, 10 lb Schipperkee mix looking for my forever family. My foster momma says I am a cuddle bug.   I do like children but I prefer gentle older kids with good doggy manners. My foster sister, a senior Boston Terrier, is awesome I really enjoy hanging with her. Indoor activities like laying on the couch, cuddling with my people and modeling cute doggie outfits are some of my favorite things. An instagram account might be in my future because the world may truly NEED photos of my cute hedgehog pajamas :) I've figured out the good life, when my foster parents go to work, I'm such a good girl I get to sleep on the couch.

Great Things About Kakuna
 - House trained.
 - A couch potato with a bit of spunk.
- A homebody, truly an “inside” dog requiring little outside activities to be content.
- LOVES to snuggle, super affectionate
- Enjoys the company of her foster sister, a very mellow, senior, Boston terrier.
- A personal shadow, an incredibly devoted sweet dog

Kakuna has a medical condition called Tracheal Collapse. This condition can be typical of smaller dogs like her. It is managed with several medications as well restricting her exercise/activities  which means she really truly is the ultimate couch potato. This quirky fun little girl will need regular follow ups with a specialist to monitor her health. Our  Weezy is full of life and love, and is just waiting for a special person to share it with.

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
