Hi, my name is Loki! I am a super cute, loveable beagle mix. I am about 4 years old. I was adopted here at the KHS and returned because I was a little too excitable around younger children; because of this it is recommended that I don’t go into a home with children under 12. I am suitable for an experienced owner. I am looking to learn some new tricks so that I can show my new family the true gentleman I am. I am ready for my forever home and looking to share my love!
