Meka's Puppy


Meka. She has a story. Found in a box on the side of a road in Ohio. Spayed before she was 6 weeks old, then adopted by a family who thought she had Parvo, was diagnosed and treated for it, but they didn't want the expense so they left her at the vet. Then came us. We get an email from a friend telling us about her. We were concerned about the Parvo, but when we met her we knew she was meant to be ours. We brought her to the vet a few days after we adopted her in August 2008. She tested negative for Parvo. I asked the vet if it was likely she tested positive because she had received the vaccine two days prior to the diagnosis. They didn't think so. So we brought her to a new vet for a second opinion, tested her again, and for other issues since the previous vet did nothing, and turns out she had worms, yeast build up in her ears and probably did since she was newborn, so it possibly stunted her growth since it was so long without treatment and a rather virulent case, but again no Parvo. We feel lucky to have her and have been so happy she's healthy. She's up-to-date on all her shots, and thankfully she's been all good. When we adopted her she was listed as a lab/shepherd mix, but we weren't convinced. After months of research and being her parents we realized she is definitely a ridgeless Rhodesian Ridgeback. She has all those great characteristics, but also adds in hints of stubbornness, willful disregard for commands, and of course likes to dig and chew. She's highly intelligent, warm and affectionate and very playful. She sighs, grunts, moans, and has the best and most intense eye contact of any dog I've met. She responds so well to tons of love and attention and given her rough start in the world, it's such a relief how well she's turned out so far.
