Kobe is an all-around great companion. This pup is smart, sweet and relaxed. He loves his people, is well-trained, follows instructions and is eager to please. What more can you ask for?


Described as an "old soul in a young body," this boy is content to relax on the back porch or gaze out the window if there is not a lap to snuggle in nearby. Did we mention that snuggling is top on his list of awesome activities?

Kobe is currently being fostered in Texas.

A fee will be requested to adopt this dog. The recommended fee amount will be based on the dog's age, and medical and behavioral issues, if any.  A completed application is required if you are interested in adoption.
