Keisha is the latest lovely lady of advanced age to join Forget Me Not after the tragic death of her owner. This 9 year old Malamute/Husky mix has a marvelous personality and adores attention and affection. She is a talkative girl who loves water, plays with pinecones, and enjoys riding in the car. She wants to be an integrated member of the family, rather than being left outside in a yard alone (she has been known to dig a bit and even open gates when she feels bored or neglected).
Keisha would do best as an only pet, though it's possible she could live with a male dog. She is not a fan of female dogs, and like many malamutes and huskies, she has a high prey drive and we do not recommend cats or poultry for her family members. She can be a little grouchy around small children (like many dowagers), and would love a fairly low-key, relaxing life with her final family, perhaps with a little diet-and-exercise program to help her take off a little weight. She is a beefy girl at 105 pounds, big even for a malamute, and has ALL THE FLOOF.
Keisha is scheduled for a geriatric blood panel and dental check on April 13, so we will have lots more information about her health at that time. Other than having overgrown toenails and dental tartar, she appears to be a healthy and comfortable old girl. She is housetrained and has good manners.
All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee is a suggested minimum of $50 (more gratefully accepted), or Senior for Senior - adopters over 65 may name their own adoption fee. All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts.
Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our transport expenses, that would be great!
