What is something you love about your pet? What else should someone know about your pet?: 
Keva is a wonderful girl. My family took her in at the beginning of the pandemic as her 1st home was not working out. Due to where Keva was born, she doesn't do well with children and her 1st home needed to find her a new environment quickly. Keva does not have a problem when on leash and passing children, she just does better in a home without small humans running around. Keva is shy and was initially fearful of us, but warmed up within the week and now she is one of the most loyal and lovely companions. She is about 2 years old, so she has some puppy spring in her still -- we get her exercise by playing fetch a lot and she LOVES it. Keva's favorite things include car rides, playing with other energetic dogs, HIKING, and chewing on toys at home. Our need to re-home her is due to our dog of 6 years who we have found does not do well with Keva (not Keva's fault). Additionally, Keva is fearful of strangers at first (she prefers to hang out in her crate when people come over) and we feel a home with less foot traffic and traveling would be better for her. Please reach out to me to learn more about Keva and to discuss if you may be the right fit -- We want her next home to be her forever place. Extra Thoughts: - Keva would do very well in a house with another dog that likes other dogs and is able to play - Keva would like a yard! She does great with recall since we've practiced and does great in our non-fenced yard - Keva needs a crate -- We call this her "house" and she goes there to have a safe space when she's overwhelmed - Keva has some "confinement" anxiety. This meaning that she does best when left to roam in the *dog proofed* house when people aren't home - Keva needs a home that can give her plenty of consistent exercise
