Koala would most certainly do better with a different name but came with that name and we didn’t change it but I think a short name like Max or maybe Charlie would be good. Koala is not so easy to say, not for me his foster mom anyway. I call him puppy a lot, or say, what a good boy because he is.
Koala has great house manners, is house trained and does well in a crate. He came with his sister, Gabby but we separated them as Gabby was just too reliant on Koala. Both dogs are doing fine in their new foster homes.
Koala is great with other dogs, a little to intent on the canaries but gives the macaw the greatest respect. He may not do well with small birds or pocket pets. We do not know about cats but he does not seem overly interested in them at adoption events. I would think with some work he would do fine with a dog-savvy cat.
Koala has focus and will work for treats making him a great candidate for easy training. I have done clicker training with him and he has taken to that quickly. He does know sit and comes when called. I have been teaching him to stand on his hind legs and walk hoping that whoever adopts him might consider doing some musical freestyle! He would be a great dog to do rally obedience, some agility and freestyle and trick training. He would also be a good candidate for pet therapy, as in visiting people. Of course, that would require training basic obedience first.
So, if you are looking for a fun dog this may be the one for you.
