Keely is a darling little wire haired Chihuahua.....born 2010 ish........this darling little red wire coated tiny girl is camera shy and so some sneakiness was required to get these pics, she is soooooooooo cute!  We call her Kee Kee and she loves that nickname......just comes running.  Keely is Irish (for her red hair and firey temper!) and means 'lovely'.
 
When we learned about little Keely, she had wandered into a yard where the people were kind enough to feed her and bring her into the laundry room when it got bitter cold. But they were leaving town for the holidays and he works a job where he's away 3 or 4 weeks at a time and his wife is in school, so no time but lots of reasons why she cannot stay........So she came into rescue just as skinny as can be, kind natured and rolls around and plays with all the others and loves to play with puppies!  She also has a side of her that will NOT be trespassed upon and she will tell that to them in NO uncertain terms, she is a darling little spit fire!  She doesn't usually start anything, but will try to finish it. Her only truly bad habit is chasing the cats - she shrieks and runs them up onto something. Though not sure what she thinks she'd do with one if she caught it, since they are all bigger than her, LOL!
 
Keely is super sweet and loving and she is a tough cookie, wanting to be a full time companion more then anything.  She never misses out on anything and likes the car, and I have a hard time getting out the door without her, even to go to work. She has more spring than I have ever seen in a dog her size - her vertical jump must go 4 or 5 times her height! Straight up into my lap without the feet ever touching till they land. If I clap my hands she will run and jump into my arms sometimes too! She is a sweetheart and I can't believe anyone would ever have abandoned her. This is a very special little dog.

About Ozark Haven Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are small group of individuals in Southern Missouri dedicated to the rehabilitation of homeless animals. We help all creatures, promote kindness to animals, respect for the earth and hope to launch a campaign in the next rescue year to combat the pet overpopulation problem in Southern Missouri.
The attitude towards animals here is not a good one; they are viewed and treated, mostly, as chattel. When they are no longer cute, or useful, they are dumped, shot, or just let go. We serve poor, rural communities, whose people do not have the money to pay for their own medical care, let alone veterinary expenses for their pets. Spaying and neutering is not the norm here at all, so we have a huge population of unwanted dogs and cats.

Our Adoption Process...

We do have an adoption process requiring an application. We do require our adoptive homes have strong and verifiable spay/neuter histories that we are able to confirm via our Application Processing team. We will not tolerate or entertain unaltered pets. We are available to answer any questions at all by way of email at Kristinawak@yahoo.com or Ozarksummer@yahoo.com

More criteria for adoption can be viewed at www.petfinder.com/shelters/MO401.html and an online submission application for adoption can be found at this url; http://members.petfinder.org/~MO207/app.htm
