About this Dog

      Hello my name is Keesha! I am currently part of a loving family of 2 adult humans, a human foster brother and a doggie brother. I am very shy when you meet me but after a couple of days I warm up to people and love cuddles, belly rubs, and attention.  Sometimes I become a 75+ pound lapdog.  I'm nervous around new people and new experiences, but I warm up after a while.  Not in a bad way, I just get scared and try to walk away or if I see a new person in the driveway I will bark at them to scare them away!  I have not been exposed recently to small children, but I love my teen neighbors next door and meet them at the door when they come over (but my brother gets a little jealous). I love rabbits and squirrels because they are probably very tasty, I don't know for sure because my family doesn't let me have them, but when I see them I try really hard to get them. I love playing fetch with balls and sticks and my other toys.  I also love playing tug with my brother and going for walks, with or without my brother, but I pull on the leash. My family and I are working on that though. I have been doing well with my brother, however I need to be properly introduced to new dogs.  My foster parents waited about a week to decompress me before I met my brother without a barrier.  I just finished up my heartworm treatment at the end of December 2019 and hopefully I will be heartworm free when I am retested in June.  Overall, I am a fun loving dog that would make a good companion.  I am fairly low maintenance and I believe I would be adaptable to any family environment.
