This pretty girl was a stray found with a chain embedded in her neck. The standing picture is her shelter intake photo. In spite of her obvious neglect she is an absolute sweetheart and loves attention. Her neck is completely healed and she is ready for a secure new home where she will be loved (and maybe spoiled a bit). She has had a bit of difficulty adjusting to adoptive homes and needs consistent, calm handling to make her feel secure.
Through all her vet treatment and transport from place to place she has kept her friendly attitude. She loves to sit by you to be petted but enjoys a good romp outside too. Leash walks and car rides are also enjoyed! It does not appear that she has been in a house very much and she's a bit nervous about long flights of stairs and some doorways. With patient handling she is becoming more comfortable and is learning to enjoy being indoors.
Her leash manners are very good and she has been perfectly behaved even in busy public places.
Khalee is crate trained and will relax quietly in her crate for long periods of time. She has been fine with all the dogs here but would probably enjoy being an only dog since she seems to prefer human company. Cats and small dogs bring out her prey drive so she needs a home without small animals.
If you're looking for a sweet, loving companion who will enjoy quiet time with you but also looks forward to joining you on outings this could be your girl. For more information please call Karin, 540-272-0470 or email email@example.com.
To start the adoption process, please fill out an application and then contact Khalee's foster mom, Karin. All potential adopters are required to have a home visit prior to placement of one of our rescues. Khalee's adoption fee is $300, and we offer a two-week trial period when you adopt one of our dogs.
Thank you for considering a rescue!
