Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization
Posted January 5, 2014
Miss Keeley came to us from the local shelter, she was found wandering in the foothills and had obviously been lacking any real social or training. She was very fearful and had anxiety problems. We had to start from scratch with training as well as potty training. She had no idea how to walk on wood floors or use stairs. It was a hard start but she is whip smart and picked everything up very quickly. She now knows verbal as well as hand commands, and is almost house trained. She loves everyone including the cats, and is a total love. She wants to be anywhere we are, she still get nervous around new people or situations but as long as we are around she does well.
This type of dog had TONS of energy and does need something to chew on, she would not do well unless there is someone to play and run her. She loves the beach as well and runs circles around my 13 year old. Keeley is definitely my son's dog and she follows him anywhere.
