Happy Friday everyone, it’s a beautiful day out there and we’re celebrating with another interview!  Today I got to chat with KC, a 2 year-old plott hound mix up for adoption at the Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society in Springfield.  KC is a very special girl but the adoption floor makes her nervous so she is lucky enough to be kept in a section of the shelter that’s a bit more quiet and mellow, if you stop by the shelter be sure to ask about her!

So KC, what is your favorite way to spend the day?

Well I love being outside and playing fun games!  I love running and am very active, I would love to find a family that would bring me hiking, on lots of walks, and maybe even to the beach if I’m lucky!  I spend a lot of time training here too, it’s really fun and the staff here says I’m so smart!  I could use a little help with some basic manners so a few classes would be helpful but I’m sure I can pick up quickly.  The trainers here even use me as the demo dog at the training classes here, I’m so proud of that!

Do you have a favorite toy to play with?

My favorite toy ever is my stuffed toy, aka “my baby”.  I really like squeaky toys too!  Some times I like to de-squeak them when I get too excited!

What about a favorite treat?

I love Duck and Potato treats!  They are so yummy and pretty good for me!

Do you have any fears?

Well right now I am very anxious in the shelter,  the environment is stressful on me and makes me nervous!  I don’t like the constant barking, other noises, and the people coming and going all the time.  I have been here for more than three weeks which makes me a “Lonely Heart” and my adoption fee is 50% off!  Seeing my friends get adopted while I stay behind gets hard after a while, so I’m hoping I find a forever home where I can finally relax.

What would be the perfect family for you?

Well like I said, I’m very active so I would like to be with a family that can bring me outside a lot, I would also be great in a home with children ages 13 or over, don’t get me wrong, I love little kids but I’m a strong girl who can still be a bit rambunctious and I wouldn’t want to accidentally knock someone over.  When it comes to other animals, I would be alright with other dogs as long as I meet them first, but I have no experience with cats.

Why do you think pet insurance is important for all pet parents to consider?

Well I think all pet parents should be prepared for anything, no matter how old their pet is.  Pets are like humans, and the older we get the more likely it is that we will need to go to the doctor.  Even young dogs can get into trouble that can send them to the vet’s office so it’s better to be prepared and have pet insurance coverage so you don’t have to break the bank at the vet.

Regardless of your pet’s age, odds are they will end up at the vet for more than just their annual check up.  Hope for the best but be prepared for the worst and call us for a free pet insurance quote today!
