Kuzco's Story

According to pretty much everyone who’s had the pleasure of meeting him, Kuzco is a furry bundle of sweetness. Just take another second to scroll through his pics. (We’ll wait.) See what we mean? Adorable. Kuzco came to us from Chicago Animal Control and Care, and is now patiently and playfully waiting for his new start. He’s house-trained, calm, affectionate, and great with other dogs. Loves include treats (of course), long walks, and plenty of people love. 

Kuzco does struggle a bit with the transition into new environments and with new people. So he’ll do best with a patient, experienced owner who can work on training and help him feel comfortable settling in. 

Now, take one more run through his pics. Ready to come meet Kuzco? We thought so.
