My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Sex: Female

Breed: Australian Kelpie x

Estimated Birth Date: 11/1/2020

When Kern County Animal Services reached out regarding Sierra we agreed to meet her but honestly didn’t have high hopes. Sierra was born with an Imperforate Anus. What this means is she did not have an anal opening. Her feces passed through her vaginal area. Most dogs with this condition grow septic when they are puppies and often humane euthanasia is the kindest option.

But Sierra somehow beat the odds. Not only has she made it to adulthood but she is thriving! This girl has so much light and life! She is definitely a dog that deserved a 2nd Chance. Sierras surgery was complicated. But that’s where we excel. We’re good at complicated. She came out of her surgery with flying colors and has made a full recovery.

Sierra is happy, social and active. She loves people, although she’s a touch shy and timid when 1st getting to know them, and wants nothing more than a bit of love and affection. Well let’s be real she really wants all your love and attention lol. True to her breed she has a good amount of fun energy and would do best in a home with some physical activity. She’d be a great hiking buddy and would love to go on all of your adventures. Sierra is good with other dogs and has been amazing with every dog we’ve paired her with at the ranch.

Due to the nature of the anal repairs Sierra needed she is not fully house trained. We’ve got her on a pretty consistent schedule which has helped tremendously with timing her to void outside but she will likely never be completely perfect. If Sierra’s story touches you as much as it’s touched us please apply to give this very deserving girl an amazing home.
