1/25/15 Update: Exciting news for Kiki, She found her family! Pam and Art of Debary, FL fell for this little girl and decided it was time for her to be part of their family. Congratulations to them all!

 

 

 

 

1112/22/14 Update: Unfortunately we received word that due to changes in her owners health Kiki needs to find a new home. Kiki would do best in a quiet home, willing to crate her when things get exciting, as visitors can make her a bit anxious. She is not a fan of Kitties, and is unsure of new dogs, but once she has time to adjust she can learn to be friends. Kiki is also a little unsure about younger children, so a home with older, or no children would be ideal. More information to come.

Check out her Photos on Facebook.

KiKi doing the Magpie Look!

05/30/12 Update:  Woah!  KiKi is most definitely a herding dog, and she is good at it!  She has the low stare, the perfect stance, the focus and the desire to control movement.  I’m not at all surprised.  She has been shedding many unwanted pounds, is enjoying her daily walks and has accepted the fact that table scraps are not dog food!  KiKi should be adopted by a quiet couple, with no young children (as she will nip to control) and no cats.  KiKi would do very well on a farm where her talents and skills are needed.  When handled by a professional, her herding and prey drive could easily be redirected with a frisbee, flyball or agility training.

Marjie Wolfe, and Shelter Director Tracey Breen, send me several photos of this cute little thing.  I was hoping I would find a way to make room for her, and I did!  Kiki’s owner had to go into an assisted living facility after her health issues became a serious concern. Kiki is about 4-5 years old. She had lived with a pack of smaller dogs. She is a Sheltie, but a low-rider! She has Corgi legs and my daughter, Sarah says she’s a Shorgi! Unfortunately, Kiki needs to shed some pounds. I’ve been calling her Special K! Looks like her owner took very good care of her, and her dinner might have consisted of biscuits and gravy!

She is an awesome little dog, housebroken, smart, loves to go on walks, does not bark like most Shelties. At first she reminded me of Garcon, and Tiny Tim…. then I saw her spots and said, Shenandoah (Connie), and who could forget the Borgies?  They were one of the most stinking cute litters we ever rescued, but when the sunlight hit her face just right, I looked down at her and saw Magpie!  She is going to the vet this week, we will check for a spay mark, and if she needs to be spayed, we’ll take care of that!  She has had all of her shots, and has been microchipped.  Sarah paraded her around the neighborhood last night, and she was a major hit!

KiKi, the Shorgie!

Her giant photo album can be viewed on Facebook!

Update:  Yesterday was a hoot!  We took KiKi to Val-u-Vet in Deltona to see if she has been spayed and to have her nails cut (they were pretty long).  But before we got down to business, I asked all of the employees, (about 10-12) to guess her breed.  Definitely Corgi legs, but is she a Border Collie or a Sheltie. It was split down the middle… Dr. Oliver guessed Sheltie because of her coat, and I agree.  Others suggested Border Collie because of the spots on her nose and legs, and I agree.  This is one dog that really should be DNA tested!  So I’m no closer to suggesting if she’s a Shorgie or a Borgie!  One thing is for sure, she’s a doll!
