Meet Kiara. She is a 9-month-old mixed breed dog who needs a home. I met her Tuesday at Harbor Humane Society.

I mean seriously. Could she be trying any harder to put on her cute face? Except that I don’t think she really had to try too hard.

As a puppy, Kiara has a lot of energy. She makes very puppy-sounding noises in her kennel in hopes of someone letting her out. (It works. I let her out.) She will pull toward the door and then just LEAP into the outdoors! What was so cute is that she never went far – she is definitely a cuddle bug! She wants your attention and will happily lick your face if you let her.

Because Kiara is still young and now in a shelter where she doesn’t get regular attention or training, she will benefit from someone who understands dog obedience training and can give her ample exercise. What I found is that she was very excited at first–constantly jumping up to get my attention, which was bothersome because her nails are so sharp right now (I would guess that her previous owners weren’t giving her much exercise). I can’t take a photo of a dog who is jumping on me at the same time, so I spent just a few minutes with some basic obedience. Jumping up was met with a “no,” and she only received a treat when she stayed sitting long enough for me to back away and get a shot.

You can see the results!

Within a few minutes, this little bundle of energy went from “naughty” puppy to calm and perfectly posed.

Her reward? A nice play-tug session, a few more hugs and a handful of treats before going back in her kennel.
