Strong Hunt Instinct

Posted September 5, 2014

We got a beautiful dog whom we named Kara. She looked absolutely delightful and was very friendly and playful.

Unfortunately, apart from diligent training by my Mum who has successfully trained many dogs, Kara would still hunt. We had to put her down after she killed a kangaroo. We lived on open land and desired an inside-outside dog, but it proved impossible to leave her outside without supervision.

It was very unfortunate as we had grown very attached to Kara, but as neighbours of ours had livestock it was to big a risk to take. Having had previous of my pets killed by other neighbours' dogs I realised too the devastation if she were to kill an animal that wasn't a wild one.
