Kuro was born at a large, overcrowded animal facility. Like many of the animals there, he was never adopted, and he grew up at the site.  In July, a volunteer working there pulled him and brought him to Antigua to try to get him healthy and adopted.

We met Kuro in July when he had just arrived in Antigua with the volunteer. He was skeletally thin with severe diarrhea, and was understandably shy and sensitive to all the new and strange sights and sounds around him. He was fostered for a couple of months, and has proved to be amazingly resilient.

Kuro is about a year and a half old. He is a leggy, still thin, short haired mix of who-knows-what. What we do know is that he is extremely beautiful, with dark rimmed doe eyes and a rich gold color. He is also extremely sweet. He gets along with all the dogs at the rescue, and turns himself inside out with joy when people come visit. He loves everyone he meets, and is one of the nicest dogs ever.

He is very food-motivated and easy to train. He has some basic obedience behaviours and we are working on more. He walks beautifully on a leash, rides well in the car, and is fine in a crate. His foster caretakers told us that he is house trained.

Kuro is neutered and up to date on his shots.

We are a small organization dedicated to helping dogs and cats in Antigua. We sterilize, rehabilite and find homes, and work with other rescue groups.
