Have you been working from home since the start of the pandemic? Or maybe you have recently retired? Do you miss the hustle and bustle of the office? Do you long for three-dimensional interaction, chats around the coffee machine? Then you need Kalei. Kalei is a beautiful, black, 45-lb., six-year-old labrador/pit bull terrier mix with deep expressive eyes and an expansive heart. She will sit at your feet while you type and listen to the rhythm of your clacking keys, and although she doesn't much care for coffee herself, she is more than happy to help you make some, by supervising. She will also help get you of your duff, when you've been on the couch so long that you've started to make an imprint on the cushion, because she loves to walk. She'll help you do projects around the house, too, like building her a doggy door so she can go potty whenever she needs to, and repairing that hole in the fence. She will even help you with your wardrobe choices, because she is in the habit of donning clothes, and when in doubt you can wear something that matches.
When you feel down she will cheer you up with her unconditional love and affection. When you feel tired she will inspire you with her energy and might, because she is strong, both in body and spirit. When you feel like you are drifting, she will give you a sense of purpose, because with a hip replacement and a gentle soul that needs company, she needs your care and compassion. Yet the greatest receiver will be you, because Kalei has gifts in abundance. Please look into those deep brown eyes (photo above) and decide to come and meet Kalei. She will change your life.
All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
