Hi…I’m Kyn Kyn, (really McKynlee, but the people here all call me Kyn Kyn) and I just have to get something off of my chest. I’m a little over a year old, a 42 lb, female lab mx, I feel a little guilty for complaining because I live with a wonderful foster family in a wonderful home with wonderful dogs. But, I can’t help myself….because as much as I love it here, I know that I can’t be here forever and all I want is to be in a home that I know I can settle into forever.
I absolutely love my people and even like to show them this regularly. My foster mom works at the table a lot and I know she just melts with love for me when I come over and rest my head on her leg and look into her eyes…(I’ve overheard her talking about me); granted I do this the most when she happens to have food on the table, but I do really love her right back. This is not a relationship that can last though…she needs the space to be able to foster more dogs so they don’t get killed and I need to be able to feel settled.
I’m a love bug to my favorite people, gentle and sweet they say. I’m a real snuggle bunny and like to mold myself into my people to cuddle or lay against a leg or on a foot; it really gives me sucha sense of contentment. I’m gonna be honest though…I’m not one of these guys who will instantly love everyone I meet, but once I have my new family I will love them just as much as I do these fosters of mine and I will be very loyal. You’ll need to be a little patient with me because this change to an adoptive family is not going to be easy for me. In fact, it’s kind of scary even as it is also exciting. I do know that once I’ve spent a little time with an adopter, I will give them all of the same love and melt their hearts as I do all of my foster familiy’s, (especially because I love treats).
When I eavesdrop, which admittedly I do pretty often, I’ve heard it said that maybe I’m a little quirky. And yes, I admit…I am. I guess. I’m fearful of new people and situations but once settled will romp with other dogs in the yard because it’s real fun. I think one of the problems is that people want me to seamlessly move to a new family and life and it’s just not me, so I don’t “show well.” I need someone who understands who I am and has the patience to let me grow into them as I have my foster family. Since I love attention and treats, it’s not too hard to get me to feel loved…and then I wake up full of joy in the morning and make happy noises for everyone.
I’m gonna give it to you straight…I might just want to be a homebody; and not go out and about too much because I feel scared when I do that. Maybe this will change for me but I’m not sure. Since new things make me nervous, maybe I shouldn’t be with young children and would do better with 12 year olds and up…they’re not as unpredictable as those little human children can be. (I hope this doesn’t insult any of you humans). I’ve heard them call me an “angel” which makes me feel happy inside. I try to do the right thing so I’m crate, house, and leash trained and know basic commands. They’ve told me what a fast learner I am too.
Well, I gotta run now….I hear my foster mom coming and she prefers when I don’t use her computer. Just one more quick thing…I have something called Megaesophogus, (where my esophagus has some difficulties properly carrying food to the stomach) that has been well managed since I was about 8 weeks old on daily medication, (cost under $20 per month); I’m pretty sure that I will need this for life and by using it I happily eat and drink normally. Likewise, this does not slow me down one bit, I’m still plenty rambunctious and happy. My foster parents, or even my vet, will answer any questions you may have about me. Uh-oh, here she comes..please remember to put in an adoption application for me asap…😘
