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 over 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 have recently been tried with some other friendly medium and large dogs here, and we did really well, so we could be in a home with other large, friendly dogs. I also recently went to a huge dog event and I was good meeting all the dogs, big and small there.
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 I would get along with a friendly large male dog or two. My sister just recently got adopted and I really want my "furever" home, too! If you would like a lovely, mostly mellow girl as your furry companion, please do look me up - I'm available!
