Hi, my name is Lakita but my foster mom calls me Kia. She says I’m the most lovable, floppiest, goofiest, happiest dog she’s ever met. I love dogs, cats and kids. I pretty much get along with everyone and see the good in everything. She says that’s kind of a nice change in this chaotic world we live in. I’m about 10 months old and came here from South Dakota. I spent most of my life outside growing up but I’m getting the hang of a warm loving home and it’s totally what I’ve been waiting for. My favorite things are toys—ALL THE TOYS! Sometimes my foster sister tries to take them from me but I don’t care. She even tries to eat my food sometimes, but I’m so easy going it doesn’t phase me a bit. If I had my way all the time, I’d spend the day with you giving lots of face kisses and I’d snuggle up beside you getting lots of pets (when I’m not wandering around being curious about everything). But I know you probably have other things to do, so I’m good in my crate too. I’m still working on potty training but I’m getting there and learning fast. I could definitely use some basic training because I never learned as a puppy, but I catch on quickly. My foster mom is teaching me a few things now, and she’s also trying to help me figure out this leash business. If you want the happiest go-lucky pup, I’m your girl! My foster mom says: ‘ This girl is pure joy all the time!’
