Keith

Hiya, the name’s Keith but my mates like to call me ‘Keef’. Just like my namesake, I’ve become quite the rock star here at GR HQ, I’ve certainly got a lot of fans! I’ve got loads of personality and I’ve been told that I’m an excellent cuddler. I’m certainly not shy and just love getting out and about. I do have to tell you that my kidneys need a little bit of help, this means I need to be on a special diet* and have to go to the dogtors every six months or so to make sure I’m still doing well.

Now, in true rock star style, it’s all about me…  so while I’m learning this pet caper, it probably best that I’m the centre of your attention for now. Not to worry though, once you meet me you won’t want to share me with anyone else!

A note from Keith’s foster carers:

Keith’s a friendly dog with lots of love and energy. He loves exploring the backyard with his keen nose, and people watching from the side of the house. We take him out to the park nearby and he’s an eager explorer, sniffing all the different bushes and trees. He’s an adventurous pooch!

Keith is definitely more of a people dog than a dog’s dog. He’s not shy of strangers and new friends and faces. He still gets overly excited and jumps on people to greet them. We are working on this with help from Leanne (from Polite Pooches). She has given us some tips on how to remedy this behaviour and he is getting better each day, learning to keep all “four on the floor”. 

Keith’s experiences walking have been super great. He’s a great walker. Loves It! Rain or shine. He’s good with kids around him. The park nearby has a playground and he’s not bothered by the kids that visit. Keith is still a bit nervous around small fluffy dogs and would prefer to keep his distance from them.

Whilst Keith has a lot of enthusiasm and energy for people, he doesn’t necessarily get the urge for “zoomies”, so would be okay living in a home that doesn’t have a backyard. We get the feeling that he prefers his bed inside with all of his treats and favourite people!
