Hello, I'm Kiwi

Kiwi is one of the goofiest dogs I've ever encountered and he makes us laugh every day.

Kiwi's Story

We kept Kiwi's name, we call him Kiwifruit, and he is doing great (although he's still trying to figure out how to eat fruit despite his name)! Kiwi is a super fearful dog of new people and situations but he has been adapting so well and building confidence with the help of our other dog Zoey. He's been making some new human friends, but he's definitely still cautious. We're very confident that Kiwi is only going to do better with each day!


When he's super comfortable with just us around the house, Kiwi is one of the goofiest dogs I've ever encountered and he makes us laugh every day. He gets crazy spurts of energy, loves playing tug-o-war with Zoey, and LOVES giving kisses and snuggling up. We're so happy and grateful that we took a chance on Kiwi because it's been very rewarding already in a short amount of time!
