Hey humans, my name is Kash. I’m an American Bulldog and I’m almost 8 years old. I’m writing this “blog” thingy because the humans who take care of me at HSGKC really wanna help me find a foster home, and hopefully, a forever home.
Lemme start at the beginning… see, I lived with a family from the time I was 8 weeks old ‘til February 2018, but my family had to give me up ‘cause they had to move and couldn’t take me with them. I was used to that home… I was the only pet, spent lots of time with my humans, and it was quiet. When I came to HSGKC, I was pretty nervous ‘cause I’d never had to live with so much commotion, what with all the comings and goings of humans and the other dogs who are waiting here for their forever homes, too. After bein’ at HSGKC for a bit I started to lose weight, my skin started to itch, and I’d pace in my doggie run so much that I’d sometimes hurt my paws. Our humans gave me new food to help with my itchy skin, and medicine to help with my anxiety, and they take me for walks and spend as much time as possible with me, but I’m still kinda depressed… and skinny… (I’ve lost about 20 pounds since I came in). I really want to be in a home again.
Now it’s June and I’m still waitin’ for a special person or family to come along and adopt me. Our humans really, really wanna see me healthy again so they are tryin’ to find me a foster home. I’m a happy, goofy boy for the most part… just ask me to smile for ya! ‘Cause I lived as the only pet my whole life, I do need a home without other pets, and I’m not quite sure what to think of “kids”, so I prefer adult humans. Another important thing to know about me is ‘cause I’m an American Bulldog, I need to live with folks who know how to handle us. Sometimes it takes me a little while to trust new humans, so please be patient with me! As soon as I know I can trust you, I’m a BIG baby who loves to give kisses and get my belly rubbed.
I got to go stay with one of my favorite humans, Brandon, for a weekend, and I did great! I loved goin’ for a ride (I LOVE baths, too, btw), and I was sooooo excited to be in a home again, it took me a bit to settle down. I was real good in my kennel overnight, I didn’t make a mess in the house, and I gotta really wrestle and play.
I have some “quirks” as you humans say, but I’m a great boy who needs a chance to become an even better dog than I am now. If ya wanna learn more about me or talk to one of the humans who takes care of me, please call Christine 913-596-1000, ext. 113, or go on our web site at hsgkc.org and complete our foster application.
Please share my post ‘cause ya never know who might see it and wanna help me out! I’ve also got my own Petfinder page you can check out.
