Kobe is desperately seeking his forever home!
Kobe was originally signed over in January 2020 due to his behaviour.
He has been desperately seeking his forever home ever since.
Behaviour observations on site
Everyone who has worked with Kobe at the Ark has fallen head over
heels for him. He is one of our longest residents after being here for
nearly 2 years and all we want is for him to find his forever home.
Kobe has come such a long way from the nervous boy who can into
us all that time ago and his true sweet, fun personality has shone
Kobe can be wary when meeting new people but he has made many
friends here at the shelter and he is growing in confidence every day.
It is so lovely to see Kobe enjoying the process of meeting new
people through the hands-off games and approach that we use here.
It has really allowed Kobe to realise that people are not so scary.
Kobe is like any other dog, loves his food and toys. His kennel is
scattered with all his favourite soft toys, and he has trouble deciding
which one to greet us with when we say hello.
When out and about Kobe can be reactive to dogs and occasionally
people if he is startled. He can however be managed very easily
when his training is used. Kobe is fully muzzle trained and will need
to wear one when out on walks. We recommend that he is walked in
quiet areas, where he can enjoy long walks and fully relax.
Kobe is a very smart individual who loves interacting and learning
new things from his handlers. It doesn’t take him long to pick up
training. He walks well on the lead, is handled very easily when he
has built up a trusted relationship and settles well at night time.
Even though Kobe can be reactive to other dogs when out on walks,
with a slow introduction, Kobe can form close bonds with other dogs.
Kobe has made a few doggy friends here at the ark, but we have
found that he seems to prefer male dogs to females. We do believe
that he could live with another dog pending successful meetings here
at the shelter.
Kobe’s potential adopters will need to be willing to throw themselves
into Kobe’s trainings as much as he does so that he can continue to
grow and flourish. All training will be given to potential adopters
here at the shelter and our behaviourist will always be on hand to
offer any help and advice prior and post adoption.
Adoption fee minimum donation of £180.
Kobe cannot be rehomed to the Southampton area.
Kobe is fully vaccinated, flea, wormed and neutered. He occasionally
has a sore ear, but this is managed well with ear cleaner.
