If you are applying for McKynlee, please indicate on your application that you have read and understand her specific needs.
Born on 01/06/20 and raised in foster care, McKynlee is a deliciously loving, 36 lb. Lab/Chihuahua mix. With her gorgeous big eyes, this girl looks at you and melts your heart instantly. McKynlee, affectionately called “Kyn Kyn” by her foster family, is so full of love for her people and never fails to let them know. Her snuggles are just the sweetest, and she will mold herself into her people to cuddle or lay against a leg or on a foot. This girl’s love for her new family will be very, very special and her connection to others will develop more gradually.
Funny and feisty, McKynlee loves her toys and enjoys, not just her siblings, but the other dogs in her foster home as well. She can often be found romping with them in the yard and would enjoy a home with another playful canine buddy. Full of joy in the morning, she makes the cutest happy noises – her foster mom calls it her “warble”. McKynlee has also been learning to swim in her foster family’s pool, which she usually follows with a sun session in her chaise!
McKynlee is very connected to her people and her canine friends, but since she is hesitant with new people and new things, she would probably prefer to be more of a homebody than to be the dog going on lots of outings. As a result of this, she would do better in a home with children over age 12. This angel is crate trained, housetrained, knows basic commands, and is working on her leash training.
McKynlee has Megaesophogus, (where her esophagus does not properly carry food to the stomach) that has been well managed since she was about 8 weeks old on daily medication; she will likely need this for life and with it does eat and drink normally. Likewise, this does not slow her down one bit, and she is plenty rambunctious and happy.
