COURTESY POST for
Keno is a 7 year old, spayed female
Norwegian Elkhound in need of a good home
with no other dogs. She has been with
her owner since she was 8 weeks old.
She loves people but has not done well with
a second dog in the house. She had
gotten into a few fights with the other dog
and these fights have escalated over the
past year. The owner has a 2 ½ year
old child who they don’t want exposed to
this situation or get in the middle of it.
Keno has never drawn blood on the other dog
and the fights happen when the dogs are
anxious or excited, such as going through an
entrance or barking at people walking
outside, etc. She’s good around the
toddler, but the owner feels she would be
better off with older children or an adult
home. Keno doesn’t like loud noises,
rain, wind, thunderstorms, etc. She
has some anxiety in the car. Keno
loves people and gets very excited when
guests come and can exhibit submissive
urination when greeted enthusiastically.
When guests ignore her for the first 5
minutes, she calms down and is able to
control herself. She is very smart and
trainable. She knows her basic
commands and is fully house broken.
She has NOT met cats. She has also had
an occasional seizure, which goes away in
about 5 minutes and are not life threatening
according to the vet. She lays down,
pants and drools and then it’s over. The
owner has consulted the vet about them and
she is not on any medication for them.
Keno needs a calm home with no other pets
where she can get the attention she craves.
If you think you can provide that for her,
please contact Amy at
for more information. Keno is in Waukesha,
