Meet Kelly! Kelly is a 3 year old Boston Terrier. Poor Kelly has spent her entire life the victim of a backyard breeder. She was removed from that situation by law enforcement and ended up in a shelter in Ohio along with her 3 nursing pups, who she struggled to nurse as she was emaciated herself. She had a bad case of demadectic mange and showed the tell tale signs of puppy milling. Her puppies we adopted from the shelter but Kelly was left behind. Buffalo Pugs refused to forget about her like the rest of the world had seemed to do.
Kelly is often scared of new things. Her first walk through the neighborhood was such a beautiful event. She was unsure at first and would belly crawl when she was nervous. With some coaxing, she continued on and became more and more inquisitive along the way! She buried her nose into every flower she passed, pawed at the bushes and checked out every fire-hydrant and tree stump in sight! The world is new to Kelly, but she sure seems ready to experience it all! She is so sweet and loving with people and returns the love they give her tenfold! Kelly does not like to share her food or treats with other dogs. This may change as she realizes that food will no longer be withheld from her. She is fine sharing with people and when she is pet while eating, she will part with her food to get some "lovins" instead.
Kelly would do best as an only dog. We feel that this little lady deserves the royal treatment from now on. She would do best with an adult or couple. She is fine with older, teenage children, but will not be placed with younger children as she is startled easily. Kelly will need an owner that is dedicated to furthering her potty training, and obedience training. It will take time, but she aims to please and with repetition and positive reinforcement, we are sure it can be done! Kelly needs an owner that is compassionate and that understands that her journey to a new life will take time. She yearns for affection and love and seems to want to trust humans again. Kelly is being fostered in Rochester. Think you can be the hero Kelly needs? Submit your adoption application today!
