Meet Kofi!

Kofi is a super-sweet boy who we picked up from Chicago Animal Care and Control in January. We were drawn to his goofy personality as much as his majestic size!

Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with a heartworm infection shortly after intake. We were devastated when we heard the news, but fortunately we were able to find great foster parents for him and they have waited patiently together through several months of heartworm treatment. We're happy to report that Kofi is now heartworm-negative and ready to find a new home!

Sweet Kofi is a big boy at around 100 lbs and very strong on leash! Due to his previous exercise restrictions, he has not had many long leash walks and is still learning how to behave properly on leash. He is also entering our "School's for the Dogs" training course starting in mid-June to polish his training skills! His adoptive person or family should be prepared to continue his training.

Kofi is dog-friendly but has not been tested with cats. He would be suitable for a home with older (sturdier) kids - his size makes him a little bit intimidating for tiny tots!

We found Kofi currently being cared for by New Leash On Life Chicago in Chicago, Illinois.
