Keena is an almost a two year old German Shepherd and lab mix who is the most perfect girl ever! This pet is spayed, up to date on all age-appropriate vaccinations and preventatives, heart-worm negative, and micro-chipped! We aren't sure why Keena has been in foster care for almost two years, maybe it's just the fact the black dogs tend to get overlooked by adopters quite often. But what we do know is that any family that adopts this babe is going to love her.
Keena was born with megaesophagus and came to us to receive the care she needed to beat this condition, which included a surgery for something called PRAA – persistent right aortic arch. She had this surgery in September 2021 and has been running and playing like a normal pup ever since. Keena graduated out of her Bailey chair and she is now eating on the ground like any other dog! She does require a raised bowl to eat soaked kibble, but that is a simple accommodation for this super sweet girl. Keena's one quirk - she gets extremely car sick and has since her foster mom picked her up. We have not yet tried meds to see if they help at all, but since her car sickness is pretty extreme we want her adopter to be aware.
Keena is an absolute dream that loves other dogs and other dogs love her. She actually greets new fosters in her foster home and helps to make them feel comfortable in their new surroundings. She is gentle and loyal and every perfect mix of a German Shepherd and Lab. Keena does get uncomfortable in new situations but as long as her human is close by, she can be convinced everything will be okay. Keena doesn't do well with car rides – she gets car sick so an adopter will need to be aware of this. Keena has lived with her foster mom since she was 3 months old, so she will definitely need time to adjust to a new home when adopted – but once she does, she will be your most loyal companion.
Keena is potty trained and kennel trained and does great with dogs of all sizes and ages and even cats. Sometimes she thinks the cat wants to play, but she moves along quickly once she realizes that won’t happen. Keena has never been around kids, but being so gentle, her foster mom does not see kids of any size being an issue for Keena.
