REIKO - Update


An adotable dog in San Francisco, CA

  • Adult
  • Large
  • Female

Update 3/7/14

Our sweet girl is not going to be ready for a home of her own, quite yet. We suspected it but the vet confirmed it, she is pregnant. Our goal is to ensure Reiko's safety and welfare first and foremost. We're keeping her comfortable and secure, until the time comes.

In typical Reiko fashion, she's remained calm, relaxed and loving even throughout all this transition and now add to that being an expectant mom (one last time).

We'll post further updates soon!

Previous update 2/14

Reiko is as sweet as they come. She is calm, gentle and not demanding in any way. She gazes up at you with soft brown eyes and gives gentle, polite kisses. The more time we spend with her, we can tell she hasn't been exposed to some things we might take for granted, like going to the pet store, going for car rides, etc.

When experiencing unfamiliar things, she approaches with some caution initially but acclimates quickly once shown there's nothing to worry about. She found that out very quickly on her first visit to the pet store. She must have thought getting free treats from a stranger meant she'd died and gone to heaven! She's a very adaptable girl and will enjoy exploring and discovering the many new things life has to offer.

It's obvious Reiko's been breed numerous times, and is in need of some TLC, a good healthy diet and regular exercise. Her life has been dedicated to having puppies. Having multiple litters has no doubt, depleted her energy and nutrients. She deserves to have a life of her own, where she'll be the center of attention and exposed to new and exciting life experiences that await!

She's not shown any adverse reaction to other dogs and is quite amicable with every one she's met.

Reiko is not a party girl, so a home without young, active children would be more to her liking! A home environment where she can get gradual exposure to lots of new things would be ideal. We don't want to overwhelm her, but we think once she gets a taste of the "real world", she'll want more! She will blossom and her spirit will be renewed! What an incredibly beautiful thing to witness, if you never have!
