Arrival Story:
a friend DJs out of town in a remote village - saw Keta skinny and torn up after numerous dog fights and realized he wasn't going to make it if he didn't help - brought Keta back and got him to a vet to get stiched up and called me as I was looking for a dog at the time. Keta sat in my lap (all 65 lbs. of him!) on the ride home and is a very trusting, loving dog who really seems to appreciate his secure and safe environment now. We're still trying to socialize him and he's coming along nicely now...

One of the quirkiest dogs I've met - he has such silly nicknames because he makes me laugh out loud literally every day. He's my first dog and I never realized how much love you could have for a pet until now. I feel truly lucky to have Keta - for having a home and friends who make him feel safe and to see his confidence grow every day.
