Plenty of Pets

Keana is a two-year-old dog who needs someone who will be patient and calm.



She is very gentle and affectionate with people she knows won't hurt her and is shy around strangers and loud noises. She was attacked by a dog in the past and is now afraid of other dogs.

Keana is great in the house and is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and up to date on parasite protection.

To learn more about Keana, visit the Good Bones Dog Rescue website or Facebook page or email goodbones.general@gmail.com
