Kenya is a beautiful 11 year old purebred Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. She weighs in at 55 lbs.
Kenya is fun, sweet, and social. She loves to retrieve and play with squeaky toys, and could do so all day long! She would also be content sleeping at your feet, while you work or relax. She is very trainable, and knows "sit", "down", "shake", and "roll over". She would do well with kids over the age of 14 who were respectful of her because of her arthritis.
She would love to accompany you on senior friendly hikes, long walks, and trips to enclosed areas where she could run off-leash. She has a lot of energy for her age, and would keep you on your toes!
She is very gentle with children (has been with 6 year old and 7 year old). She allowed both children to walk her, and didn't pull them. However, because of her arthritis, she is suggested to go to a home without small children.
Please consider adding this sweet girl to your home! You won't be disappointed!
Rescue Group Info...
We are a new organization founded in memory of an eight year old black German Shepherd/Chow named Cayleb. His story is a sad one, but one that inspired our founder to save others like him. He was taken in as a lost dog to a county shelter, and after three long months, he was beginning to reach the end of his given time. When our founder peered into his kennel, he looked intimidating and scared. She couldn't resist adopting him. As soon as he got outside, he started giving kisses, and happily hopped in the back seat of the car without hesitation. Cayleb quickly became best friends with the founder's current dog (a very dog shy poodle), as well as with everyone he met.
Unfortunately, after a month of morning runs and trips to the dog park, Cayleb began to go down hill quickly. When x-rayed, an inoperable mass was found in his liver, and our founder had to make the tough decision to let him go on July 13th, 2012.
A few weeks later, Cayleb's Kindred Senior Dog Rescue was formed, to help all of Cayleb's "kindred spirits" find loving homes to live out the rest of their days in.
We have had dogs as old as 20 years old in our rescue, and as young as 8. We have all breeds, from Dachshunds to Mastiffs, Coonhounds to Wirehaired Pointing Griffons.
We love our seniors, and hope to spread that love with everyone else!
