**  Kenzo had a surgery to remove stones from his bladder, the stones were sent to a lab for analysis and came back as being primarily struvite in origin, because of this he will need to be fed the prescription diet Science Diet C/D for the rest of his life. In addition to the struvite there were some calcium phosphate stones that are not controlled by diet. It is recommended that his urine is cultured every 3 months to monitor for the presence of a urinary tract infection.


Kenzo is a little sweetie looking for his forever home to give him extra snacks!


Foster Home Feedback 

** Older, considerate children only

08/14/2023 Foster Feedback: Kenzo has been with me for 8 months now and is still looking and hoping to find his forever home, can anyone help this guy out!? Kenzo just turned 2 yrs old in August. He's the sweetest little dog when he warms up to his people. He's by my side whenever I'm home, I can't be out of his sight. He's a happy little dog and likes to go for walks. 
Kenzo would do best with another little dog buddy to follow around. 
Things to know about Kenzo:
* He's on special food for life
* Scared of new people so he needs slow introductions, and it may take him a few months before he feels fully comfortable in a new home
* He may be hard of hearing
* A fenced in yard would be great for him, but not required

He's been a great foster dog, but it's time we find him a forever family!

06/01/2023 Foster Feedback: Kenzo is liking the warmer weather and being outside. He likes going for walks with other dogs.  So a little dog buddy  would be great for him.  He still needs slow introductions in meeting new people and time to adjust to a new home.
Kenzo is doing a little better with his potty training now that the weather is nice.  I do put a belly band on him for awhile when I am home.
He still doesn't like being in a kennel for a few hours.
Kenzo loves to snuggle with me and he has to know where I am all the time when I'm home.  He will bark if he can't  find me. 
Kenzo will make a great companion for  someone!

03/30/2023 Foster Feedback: Kenzo is doing well after his bladder stone surgery in February. He will need to be on special food for the rest of his life (see above). He is such a funny dog to watch because he does the cutest little things, I just love him and his ears! I like to take him with me on short car rides, but I would suggest having him in a kennel for longer distances because he doesn’t want to sit still in the car. We are still working on potty training; he knows how to go outside but he does still have accidents inside.

Little Kenzo is still skittish of people at first, but you just have to let him come to you when he’s ready. He likes to pick one person to get really attached to. Because he is so skittish and sudden movements scare him, it would be best he goes to a home with older, considerate children only.

Since having Kenzo, I’ve noticed he may be hard-of-hearing. When he’s asleep he doesn’t wake up to hear my dog’s barking. I will try to get his attention by making noise or whistling and he doesn’t respond or look at me. I would be extra careful about having him on a leash outside since he is skittish and may not be able to hear very well. Either way, he's such a sweet boy who is looking for the right person to care for and love him.

2/23/2023 Foster Feedback: Kenzo is the sweetest little cuddle buddy! If you're looking for one of those dogs he's your guy! He may be a little scared at first, in his new home, and will take time for him to warm up to his new family. He would do well in a quiet home with a little dog buddy to play with. 

Kenzo loves to go for walks and check things out. He doesn't like the cold weather so a doggie coat/sweater would suit him fine. If you let him sleep with you, he will keep you warm at night. 
Kenzo still doesn't like to be in a kennel for too long. He's waiting for his forever family to love him!

12/31/2022 Foster Feedback: Kenzo was a little scared when I first got him. It took about a week for him to warm up to me. He's very sweet and likes to sit with me in the chair and watch some tv.

Kenzo is going to need some work on potty training. Kenzo doesn't like to be in a kennel, he will bark, so apartment living would not work for him. He could probably be in a room while you are gone for the day not free roaming in the house. A fenced-in yard would be great for him and maybe a little dog buddy. He plays well with other dogs as long as they are nice to him. I would watch him around open doors as he may run to go outside. 

Kenzo does sleep in my bed at night and does fine. He's waiting for his forever home; he will make a great companion for someone!
