I fell in love with her cute face and gigantic ears right away. After spending a few minutes with her, I knew I would be taking her home to foster. The dog was very well behaved during the evaluation. She didn't jump up, she wasn't mouthy or pushy, she wasn't fearful, and she tolerated being handled and held with no issues. She was the perfect size (around 25 pounds) and she seemed to be in good health.
At her vet visit I learned that she is believed to be a French Bulldog mix, and she is between two and three years old. At home I learned that she is mostly deaf, although she may have limited hearing. She is great with other dogs, fine with my cat, and she loves to cuddle. And it didn't take long before I started thinking about adopting her myself.
I haven't decided to keep her yet... she is still new and I need to make sure once she settles in she will be okay with all the different dogs and cats that I foster. But so far she is doing great. And although I originally wanted to name her something to do with her large ears or the cute paw-print shaped spots on her back, in the end my husband called her Kira, and since he agreed that we could keep her if I wanted to, I thought it only fair that I also keep the name he gave her!
Whether she stays permanently or not, I just have to say that I love this dog!
