"This girl just wants to have fun!" Keiko is a remarkable dog. Life threw her a few curves, but she crushed every one of them and prevailed.

GPRS rescued Keiko and her two siblings from a Texas animal shelter as the owner decided he no longer wanted them. She was the smallest of the litter, but their DNA leads us to believe she will be a big dog: Great Pyrenees 66%, Akbash 13%, Anatolian Shepherd 13%, Maremma 4%, Siberian Husky 2%. Her Anatolian Shepherd bloodline may account for her beautiful face and markings.

Keiko, born around March 2020, now weighs about 50 lbs. Her foster mom says, "Keiko is a pretty calm and chill puppy. She loves to meet new people and will squeeze herself in between your legs to greet them."

When Keiko was younger, she was diagnosed with hip dysplasia. She had surgery, and after weeks of recuperating with a cone on her head and confined in a small kennel, she was finally allowed to play indoors with her foster sibling.

Today, her sole interest is to play with her two foster canine sisters. Keiko enjoys an old fashion game of tug-o-war with them! She runs and plays in the yard with no hip issues. Her foster mom says, "Keiko is doing great with her hips. Shes running and chasing my two Pyrs around the yard and patrols the fence line with great concentration."

Keiko is house-trained and can be trusted to roam freely without any mishaps. She is learning to walk nicely on the leash and sleeps through the night.

Keiko would do great in a home with another canine companion, a big yard to play and run, and a family who will treasure and appreciate this fun-loving sweet girl.
