UPDATE: 10/06/12 Due to unforeseen circumstances Kira has returned to her foster home from her previous adoption. Please sponsor Kira as she awaits her new home. Due to her timidity and fear of males, we feel it best to wait to find a home for Kira with a single female owner.
Hi, I'm Kira. I was so safe and cozy until one day my human didn't wake up. It took people five days to find my sibling and I and we were scared. We were separated and I came to a foster home where I enjoy pampering from a single Mom who no longer has children at home. I am very shy when visitors come, but will warm up to dog friendly women, but I have issues with accepting men. My foster Mom says I was denied proper socialization and would need a quieter home. I love belly rubs and being the apple of your eye. I'm very sweet and love to sleep on the bed with you and be close to you when you're relaxing in front of the TV. I do fine with teens who understand proper treatment of animals as long as the environment is quiet. I am potty and crate trained. My foster mom knows I seek to please and am sensitive if I know I have displeased her. She thinks that I might eventually warm up to men, as when the handy man comes by, she gets the spray bottle of water handy and I know that I'm supposed to behave.
I'm okay with other dogs, but don't interact much except to express my disapproval when they play. My foster Mom has been unable to see if I'm okay with cats but suspects I probably would be fine with one.
I so long for my forever home and my special human who will love me exclusively! I show my true youth when my foster Mom comes home from being gone in spite of my age. I have lots of spunk and love to zoom around the house with excitement. Am I your special girl?

Good with Dogs, Not Good with Cats
Whenever possible Eskie Rescuers United tries to adopt out its dogs locally (or at least to adopters in adjoining states to where I'm being fostered). Please note that ERU processes LOCAL adoption applications before considering those from out of state.
If I'm not local to you, as explained above, and you really have your heart set on me, you will have to make special arrangements so ERU can get me to you safely (for example, flying me to you at your own expense, or paying a transport group to drive me to you). Note: We may ask that you to make a donation to cover transport costs if the distance is great and we have trouble finding transport drivers. There is an adoption fee required; and, please be aware, Eskie Rescuers United will not adopt out its dogs as outdoor dogs.
Eskie Rescuers United American Eskimo Dog Rescue, Inc. is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Please click the donation button below to make a tax-deductible donation through PayPal and help make a difference to even one American Eskimo dog!
