Cute little Kia has had a challenging life. When Kia`s Dad could no longer keep her, he found her a home where he could still provide food, vetting and visit her regularly. Eventually he moved to Canada leaving Kia well-funded with her trusted care giver in the Dominican Republic. Sadly, there was no care given. A vacationing relative checked in on her and found a terribly sick dog barely recognizable. Kia was horribly neglected, emaciated, and full of mange, ticks and fleas. She was brought to Canada and immediately taken to the vets. Due to the terrible condition of her skin, she had to be shaved and treated with antibiotics. Her fur is nicely growing back and she’s gaining much needed weight. Though Kia`s been neglected for a stretch of her life, she still remains a happy little girl. She quickly warmed up to her new parents and has settled into a real home. For the rest of her life, Kia will be properly cared for, enjoy regular walks, lots of love, oodles of attention and feel like a member of the family. We`re happy for you Kia, Congratulations sweet little girl!
