NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Khai means royalty, and if you can make it past his adorable face, you will discover a prince among pups in this little guy. Well-loved since puppyhood, Khai is a happy, and playful spirit, who adores his people and enjoys canine company. He is polite with visitors, offering a friendly greeting and then heading to his mat (or off for a game with visiting dogs). Khai is curious and sociable, loves a good snuggle, and enjoys stretching his body and mind. He has a solid off switch, though, and likes long snoozes around the home or a sunny spot by a window where he can watch the world go by. Khai has been to puppy school and has all his basic training down. He is house-trained and used to spending some time on his own during the day, preferring to be indoors if possible.
Khai enjoys sleeping on the end of his person’s bed overnight, but will submit to sleeping in his own bed if you need him to.

Khai loves other dogs and has experience living and visiting overnight with others. He is untested with cats. Out and about, Khai enjoys making contact with all who wish to say hello to him, and loves a good game of chase in the park. He strains on the leash sometimes in an effort to say hello, or lies down before playfully greeting other dogs. While very happy with other dogs at home, Khai does prefer to be top dog and can sometimes be territorial of his food and toys, so should be meal-supervised or fed separately when other pups are about. He also thinks possums do the devil’s work, and is best kept indoors when they are active. His current people have done some work to desensitise his possum patrol and he has been responding really well. Kai enjoys being handled and brushed, and can tolerate but does not love having a bath!

Khai will do well in a variety of homes with people large and small (but big enough to respect his space when he is eating). He loves having his people around but is happy snoozing while you are out for work or play.
He could be okay in a working household, provided he gets regular exercise, human time and toys that keep his brain busy. Having a well-matched doggy pal would be an awesome bonus. If given the chance, he would love to go on the occasional bushwalk, beach run or café visit with his people. Khai will benefit from some further training to brush up on his leash skills and walking etiquette. He also needs to keep working on his recall. Given his foundational training, good nature and love of food, rewards-based training with Khai should be easy and mutually rewarding. He is an absolutely beautiful boy and deserves a forever home where he can adore and be adored.

If Khai had you at hello, he would love you to submit an adoption application.
