Kai has been an awesome foster. If you choose to adopt him, you should prepare to never have any personal space since he always wants to be with his people. Even if you’re in separate rooms, he will run to investigate as soon as he hears anyone move around since he knows there is likely a pet on the head for him. He always wants to have his head on your lap or be asleep at your feet, with the occasionally bursts of playful energy.
Kai has met other dogs and does like to play a bit rough, so a household with another dog that is open to that would be best, and it is likely a good idea to avoid houses with small children since sometimes he doesn’t know his own strength. With that said, he hasn’t displayed any signs of overt or malicious aggression with any dogs he’s met so far. He doesn’t love his crate but can be coaxed in and, while he doesn’t bark or whine loudly, he does get verbal sometimes if he still hears people moving around though he quickly quiets down and goes to sleep if the crate is covered. He has been ok being left alone for short-medium lengths of time out of the crate, but he still does have the occasional accident in the house which we’re working on, and he has gotten much much better compared to the first day I had him.
He hasn’t displayed any aggression over food or toys, but was a bit territorial with his spot on the couch at first, which occasionally came in the form of a low growl when I’d move him, but that was it. In recent weeks, I’ve made him use his own bed in lieu of the couch, and this behavior has stopped entirely so it would be best to have someone that can set boundaries and maintain them. Aside from those couple instances, he has been nothing but a little ball of love that just wants to be pet all the time!
Overall, Kai has been great to have around and will make a welcome addition to most households.
