Adoptable Dog of the Week- Kailo

PetGuide logo

If you’ve always wanted a happy-go-lucky, sporty pooch, you’re in luck! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Kailo, a 2.5 years old Australian Shepherd from Minot, North Dakota. This lovable pooch is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on his vaccines. Kailo is an intelligent and friendly dog that does well with other pets in the household (both cats and dogs) and wouldn’t mind sharing his home with respectful children.

A good Samaritan noticed someone trying to give away a dog on an online marketplace and scooped him up to give him a chance at a real home- so he contacted a rescue that became Kailo’s temporary haven. When he was surrounded by loving people, Kailo’s true personality shined through- he is true to his breed to the T. Intelligent, affectionate, and very energetic, this working dog will need a lot of physical and mental stimulation to stay happy. He makes a great candidate for agility as he is very athletic and motivated to learn new tricks- he can currently jump from a standstill and see over the 6-foot fence. With the right person training him, he could really excel in dog sports!

While he might seem standoffish at first, Kailo is a super sweet guy that only shows his affectionate side once he gets to know you better (as it is usually the case with Australian Shepherds). Don’t be fooled by his initial disinterest, though: he is very affectionate, loving, and friendly. He even does great with children, other dogs, and cats. He could really fit in any family as long as his needs are met, which means plenty of exercise and challenges for his smart cookie brain. Furthermore, he would need a home with a fenced yard where he could safely play throughout the day.

In case Kailo sounds like he would fit in with your family and lifestyle, be sure to contact For Belle’s Sake Rescue and Rehabilitation, Inc for more information about the adoption process.
