9 year old Koa is a sharpei mix who weighs 68 pounds. She is said to be good with other dogs. It is unknown how Koa would do with a cat but the shelter staff believes she could be good with one since she is such a nice girl.

Koa is currently in a shelter foster home. Here is what her foster shared about Koa:
“She’s so smart! Koa knows many verbal commands:sit, stay, shake, lay down and rollover. This velvety black coated pooch is also a very good walker, fully potty trained, and even wears grippy socks in the apartment without a fuss.

“Her temperament is amazing – she’s just as happy lounging on the couch as she is taking long walks or being out and about. With tons of energy despite her age she’ll often ask for a round of tug or hide and seek. Koa is so good with people, she’s become quite the celebrity in our building, and we get so many compliments on how pretty she is. She, of course, happily soaks up all the attention and pets from everyone.”

Koa is posted for the Seattle Animal Shelter. Seattle Animal Shelter is located at 2061 15th Ave W, Seattle, WA 98119. For more information about ​K​oa and adopting her please phone:  206-386-7387 or email: seattleanimalshelter@seattle.gov
