Kirby is a transfer from our friends at Duck Team 6, a street dog rescue in the Dallas area with a mission to reduce the street dog population through trapping and rehoming. Back in April, Kirby showed up on a nice lady’s property in Joshua, TX and decided he didn’t want to leave and the owner asked DT6 for help. Their capture team went out and set the trap but before they finished dropping the food trail, Kirby was captured!
Kirby was then placed in a boarding facility while DT6 looked for his owners (1st) then a rescue to transfer him to (2nd). They reached out to us because Kirby, likely a BC/ Aussie mix, is also probably a former ranch dog and not really used to people, so they wanted to make sure Kirby could go someplace that understood his quirks and could help him find the perfect place to call his FURever home.
Kirby has been with us since April 2022, and what we know so far is that he does NOT like a leash, likes to roam his property but always comes back, and is not so sure of people just yet. He gets along fine with other dogs and has learned how to play. He knows when to come eat and knows the dog door, though he prefers to stay outside. He will take treats from your hand.
About 43 lbs and 3 yrs old, Kirby is looking for a foster home who can work with him on his fear of people and leashes, and would do best with lots of room to roam and a really good fence.
