Oh, hello there! I'm Veeka!

My foster parents say I'm easy dog to have around. I know how to sit and lie down and am very gentle! I don't like to be in a crate, but as long as I can look out the window and hang out with a dog friend, I am perfect in the house! I don't make any messes or chew anything up! Did I mention I always go potty outside?

You'll just have to forgive me for one thing...I'm a little shy. Actually, I'm a lot shy. My foster mom says you can't blame me (I had some rough times living on the streets, after all) but says I'm a really sweet, calm girl who loves ear scratches once I get to know you! I'm just a little unsure of people, and need my human friends to be patient and go slowly with me while I learn to be brave. Little humans are kind of scary to me, so I'd prefer a house with older children who can be calm and gentle while I learn!

My canine foster brother is teaching me to trust people again! I definitely need to be with another confident, friendly dog to go on walks with me and encourage me to make new friends. Plus, it's just fun to have a buddy, you know?! I'm still learning about toys and how to play, but I'm starting to catch on! My foster family says I'm turning into a wonderful pet!

Gateway Pet Guardians is proud to offer a variety of mixed breed dogs available for adoption. However, please keep in mind that we rarely know the genetic background of the animals we rescue and, as such, we cannot guarantee the exact breed combinations found within this dog. Further, because 'pit bull terrier type dog' is not a breed we can list and because this dog has a blocky head and other characteristics that make the public perceive him/her as a pit bull, we are listing him/her as a pit bull mix. However, we do not know his/her actual genetic makeup. Just know that this dog is probably a variety of several different breeds that have combined to create one very amazing and unique animal.

Our Adoption Process...

Once you find an animal that you are interested in, submit an adoption application through our website and we will send your information to the foster family. Once we have reviewed the application and contacted your references, we set up a home visit.

Adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs and $195 for puppies. This fee includes shots, a spay/neuter and microchipping, as well as any other treatment the animal may have needed upon being rescued.
