Hello there, I'm Kitka and not too long ago my sister, Needa and I were surrendered to the local shelter by our owners whose circumstances changed and they just couldn't afford to keep us. They loved us but knew we would be happier in a different situation. I realize I look a little funny right now - my rear end area and even my beautiful tail was shaved at the vet because of an infection. But I can tell that my fur is gradually growing back and I'll be beautiful once again. I do have a long "wooly" coat, so I will need lots of brushing to keep my mane looking superb!
When we went in for our vet visit, the nice vet checked me out all over and said that I do have some sore hips - I could have told him that. I weighed around 120 when at the shelter, but since then I've lost nearly 20 lbs, so I'm on the right road. At least they are giving me some pain meds daily, so that really helps put the bounce back in my walk. And I just LOVE to go on walks! I don't pull very hard and settle right down to a nice even pace once the excitement of getting out wears off. I like stopping and sniffing all the P-mail along the way. I'm pretty interested in other dogs I see or hear, but I'm not reactive and can easily be managed on leash. My sister and I haven't been tried around many dogs yet here, but there was talk of that happening and I'm excited to meet some other canines.
I'm clean in my kennel have spent time inside my previous home. I am very treat motivated, so I'm sure I could learn a lot! I could be your one and only furry girl or maybe I would get along with a friendly large male dog. If you would like a lovely, mostly mellow girl as your furry companion, please do look me up - I'm available!
