Kira was a five month old puppy who was rescued from Craig's list. Some of the dangers of Craigs list ads are unknown people can take your dog. Fighting pits and breeding farms are some of the bad places the dog can end up. Kira was lucky she was rescued.
Her family was young and was busy with working and school. They did not have time for a growing puppy. She was put in a cage for most of her life. She had very few toys and was not house trained.
We met her owners halfway between where we were and where they lived. Kira rode 2 1/2 hours in a cramped cage. She was afraid to get out of the cage. She shook for a long time. After awhile she started calming down and looking around. Kira started wagging her tail.
She is now adopted and in a home with two other Elkhounds. When she first entered the home, she was very possessive of food and toys. She didn't have much of her own when she was growing up. With lots of patience Kira's family has helped her to become a better dog. She wags her tail all the time and is just a happy go lucky pup.
