KEYNAI was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs have just 3 dogs to be saved. KEYNAI is spayed, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm and tick disease tested negativeq and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 6 December 2015 and at the time of rescue at the beginning of December 2018 weighed around 60.70 pounds. She is listed as a German Shepherd Dog. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
KEYNAI is a ver sweet, smart, loving girl. When she first got to the rescue she was in a kennel and would jump up on the gate, she learned very quickly that if she sat and didn't jump up she would get a treat, just proving that she has such an intelligent girl and could easily be trained to do anything.
After a few weeks, I moved Keynai into a larger pen in the trustee room with her neighbour ROCKY-4 and they had so much fun, playing and wrestling. Keynai was interested in the pups in the room and was trying to lick and nurture them through the fence panel. After a week of being there, I moved them in the full area of the trustee room where she hangs out with 10 other dogs, she was great with the pups and loved to play with them, she did initially guard her food, not in an aggressive manner, but just enough to let everyone know she was eating, but this has subsided since she has been living with all the other dogs and there are two feeding stations.
She is a stunning, fun loving, affectionate girl who has got so much to offer. She is extremely responsive and training would be fun and easy. She will need an active family who understands the needs of this magnificent breed and can give them both the physical and mental lifestyle that they need.
I do not know how Keynai would be around cats or livestock.
She rides great in the car, is great with other dogs and people of all ages, she uses the dog door to get in and out to play or to do her business but she won't know to let her new family know she needs to go out, so a few accidents whilst she goes through this big transition should be expected and then if there are not any, it is a bonus :)
All dogs (except dogs saved from China) are available for adoption for an adoption fee of $550. Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.
