Keoni – Special Needs

Keoni is a sweet 2 year old Maltese.    He is a lovely little boy but needs a special home.   He has a grade 4-5 heart murmur.     It doesn’t affect him at this time and he has no symptoms and not on any medications.    He does need a quiet and calm home as he is a bit of a shy and a submissive boy.   so he needs a home with one or two calm adults and no kids please.     He as well needs work on house training so a belly band is best to use in the home.    He also would do best in a one level home with no stairs to the outside as the stairs do scare him a bit so not helping with the house training.      He does great with other dogs as long as they are calmer.     We will be doing a ultra sound on him shortly to get a more definitive answer on his heart as well he still hasn’t been neutered so we want to check his heart before we can do that.   This will all be covered by us.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
