Kelis is around 3 or 4 years old. She was pulled from the Lorain county pound by Paws and Prayers with a terrible skin infection that has since been cleared up with the help of medicated baths and a grain free diet (which would need to be continued in her permanent home). Her coat has grown in beautifully and she gets many compliments on her looks whenever she goes out.
Not just another pretty face, Kelis is also a highly intelligent dog. She knows sit and down, loves treats and training time and is progressing nicely! She is house trained and crate trained, although she would rather be around her people. Kelis is very affectionate and loving, really enjoys snuggling on the couch and loves going for car rides and just hanging out. She has good house manners, and she had earned herself free-range in her former fosters house before she had to leave the country for her job.
While she is calm in the house, once outside, it is clear that Kelis is a very athletic girl. She loves to run around the yard, which is fun to watch as she is very quick and graceful. Regular exercise is a must for Kelis, she loves going on walks and exploring new places. It is important to know that she does not get along with all other dogs, and that she will try to chase cats and squirrels. She does get along with some dogs, and adores my brother's pitbull 6 month old puppy, they are great playmates. However, this seems to be the exception, not the rule. We are working on her reactivity and she is making progress. Just important to be aware of these tendencies, especially walking on leash because she is quite a strong girl.
All in all, Kelis is a inquisitive, smart, loving, sweet dog with a great personality. Her friends enjoy her wide range of facial expressions, you can almost see her wheels turning sometimes. She has proven to be an excellent companion since I have had her these few months, and I know she will be a wonderful addition to the right permanent home. If you have any questions, or would like more information about Kelis, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
