Hi all, my name is Kilmer.  I may still be young, but I’ve had a pretty tough life already. 
Earlier this year, I got in a fight with a porcupine and I lost. I have had 5 surgeries to remove quills (and one of my eyes) and I’m finally feeling like myself again. 
When I came to my foster family, I was so scared that I wouldn’t let them anywhere near me, but I have come to love and trust them so much. My foster brothers have taught me how to be a confident and happy pup.
I really like to get pets from my humans, but I also get really nervous around new people or dogs. I’ve come a long way, but I still need to take things very slowly. 
I’m on the hunt for a special home. It’s very important I have a dog companion to help me feel confident. I LOVE to play, so I really want a wrestling partner. I spent two years living outside, so I still really like to be out in the fresh air. I need a fenced yard where I’m free to spend plenty of time napping and just hanging out.  Also because I lived outside for so long,  I have a high prey drive and don’t interact well with small creatures or cats. I can get scared by quick movements or unpredictable behavior, so a house with no small children is a must for me. 
My foster parents are going to be so sad to see me go, but we know that there is a perfect him out there for me! 

In the meantime if you have questions or are interested in me, please fill out an adoption application at
