Kumbaya

This playful pup will have you singing Kumbaya!

Hi there! My name is Kumbaya, but you can call me Kumba for short. I’m a one or two-year-old, 45-55 pound, male pit mix. My foster mama thinks I’m even younger though because of my puppy-like energy! I’m a goofy little guy who couldn’t be happier to have this second chance at life. When someone sings “Kumbaya” they are hoping for help and peace. And boy let me tell you… before The Animal Pad rescued me, that’s exactly what I was looking for. When I was found in Mexico, I was chained up 24/7 and neglected. I have scars as evidence of my ruff past, but I’m just so appreciative of my new people. Despite my history, I’m a happy, healthy (and neutered) boy. I am nothing but love and can’t wait to learn to be the best pup ever with a bit of time and TLC!

I’m really starting to love this whole domesticated doggo life! Naps on the couch, chewing on bones… I don’t think things could get any better! (That is… until I find my furever family, of course!) I’m so giddy when I see my people and I’m friendly with all of the hoomans I meet. Since I love to jump and can be a bit mouthy during playtime, I probably wouldn’t be best in a home with kids or cats.

I’m total besties with my furry foster sister and have other pooch pals that I like to have playdates with. However, I’m a bit picky when it comes to my friends. I get along well with calm, submissive dogs alongside a proper introduction. Otherwise, I can be fearful or defensive. I need a strong leader who can socialize me and help me learn that the world doesn’t have to be a scary place.

My foster fam has been doing a great job training me and I’m getting super close to being accident-free! I still have the occasional slip-up, but I’m doing really well with my bathroom schedule. I’m pretty good on a leash but can have some fear-based reactivity that I’m working on. I absolutely love earning treats though, so I’ll happily continue training with you! I’m sure I’ll be a good boy in no time.

I’m a total lover who is so deserving of a second chance at life. If you’re the special person for me, I’ll show you endless affection and appreciation! I need a home with a hooman that can commit to my socialization and training so that I can trust the world again. I’d do well being the only dog in the home and I will need more socializing training and controlled play dates to help build my confidence and socialization skills. But with the right introduction, I will thrive in a home with another calm, well-socialized, non-reactive pooch who can show me the ropes and play with me. A doggie bestie will bring out the best in me! I’ve been singing Kumbaya and hoping that the right person will rescue me! I’ll keep my paws crossed that it’s you. My adoption fee is $350 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adopt-today
