Blessings come in all shapes and sizes. Our dog of the month, Keiko, would think she would have had better luck in like. After all, her name means “blessing”. Unfortunately, life before rescue hasn’t been kind. Not only was she abandoned by her family, but she was abandoned with an untreated medical condition called Pannus. It is a fairly common and treatable condition found in German Shepherds. Her luck changed, when she was rescued by Coastal, though. Her condition was diagnosed almost immediately and she was put on the necessary eye medication. She got her new wardrobe, a pair of super cool pink shades to protect her eyes from the UV rays of the sun, very nice RexSpecs that she doesn’t mind wearing at all.
Her luck changed even more when, after having a very hard time adjusting to kennel life, Keiko was welcomed into a foster home, one where she is surrounded by a lot of love from her foster mom and her foster brothers and sisters, both canine and feline. The cats still don’t know what to think of her, but she is working on learning her boundaries with them. She loves her walks and lounging around. Her foster home makes her feel safe, something that she really longs for. While she loves her foster family, Keiko would like nothing more than a home of her own, a quiet home with other dogs or without other dogs, so long as she gets lots of love and attention.
If you’re looking for a happy girl, a blessing, a shadow, and a companion all rolled up into one package, that would be Keiko.

The minimum adoption donation ranges from $300 to $400. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. Prior to placement, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are usually microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis. Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
