Keetah is a happy and sweet shelter resident who keeps on smiling despite her challenges. She was rescued at 3 days old with her mother, Scrunchie (aka Mercy) last August. Approaching a year old, knowing nothing but the busy shelter life and a foster home’s love, she has had a pretty good start. Recently, Keetah lost the battle with a neighborhood fence and broke her leg. Our shelter has been overwhelmed with special needs dogs and vet bills lately, so this one put us over the top! Our first quote for surgery was $4000, but we managed to find a senior vet who was willing to do it for the cost of the surgery as a learning experience for his junior vets. Win-Win!
Keetah is comfortable now with her leg in a splint and awaits her surgery. The cost for surgery and rehabilitation is approximately $700 and we have already received $425 in donations for Keetah. If you can help, please consider making a donation – every penny gets her closer to recovery.

I've moved from Misty Creek into a foster home and I'm settling in quite well. There are lots of friends to play with here, though Shotzie the cat doesn't like me so much, I'm still figuring out how to play with her. I also have some dog friends here - I love to get them to play with me.I'm working on learning some lessons and will sit when I'm told (even without treats). I can't wait to learn more tricks.
As you can see I love to play in the snow with my friends.
I won't make a mess in my kennel, but my foster mom says I'm outside FOREVER doing my business. Or maybe it just feels that way because it's so cold. I'm still new to this house training business, but I'm a smart pup I'm sure I'll catch on fast.
That's all I have to report on for now. I'll be sure to keep you posted as I learn new things.
Please contact Misty Creek if you'd like to bring me home for the holidays.

Though I'm quite small now, I'll probably grow up to be a nice sized medium dog when I'm older.
I'm cute as a button - just look at my fuzzy brown face and tiny black nose!
