Ever see a blue-eyed beauty like
this? Kimiki (Ki MEE kee) has got to be one of a kind! She shows true evidence
of Chinese Shar Pei in the face and mouth, and Australian Shepherd is another
possible ingredient in her unique blend. She weighs 52 lbs. and is spayed.
Kimiki was on death row in a
shelter, and AFL pulled her out on her final day! We were informed that she was
an owner-relinquish. Her mama could no longer afford the vet bills…because
heartworm treatment is quite expensive. Her test for Lyme disease was also
positive. She is only 2 years young, so we’re confident she will recover nicely
in her foster home.
It appears Kimiki was not very
well socialized as a pup. Her foster mom is doing some research on methods to
encourage friendships with other animals. She is extremely loyal to people,
though. She is happiest following people around, room to room, she waits at the
door for ya, and she lies at your feet playing with her toys or chewing bones.
She is gentle with toys, so they last forever with this lady! We have to keep
her heart rate down for now, and she has been quite content with lazy days.
She is very well-behaved having
free reign of the house. She barks, “Don’t you dare leave me in this cage”
whenever crate training is attempted. So since she’s completely housebroken and
shows no signs of destructive behaviors, she holds up the fort for us while we
are away. She prefers cooler temperatures with her dense silky coat, so no
woodstoves please. Also, a daily brushing is beneficial to her comfort, your
home, and it’s also quality bonding time! She loves the attention!
The fact that Kimiki does not
like being left alone outside makes her an excellent candidate for apartment
life, or a yard without a fence. She loves going for rides in the car. She’d be
ever-grateful to be an “only child” but we’ll see if we can cozy her up to other
pets during her recovery.
Although Kimiki is not currently
available for adoption until her heartworm treatments are done, interested
applicants are more than welcome to come meet this gem. She is well worth the
wait if she sounds like your type.
