XOXO to all of our Scottie and Westie friends! Today is a special day because Kenzie came to live in her furever home in California. Kenzie means “the fair one,” which comes from the surname Mackenzie, of Scottish Gaelic origin. Kenzie was in need of a home after her original owner abandoned her at a vet due to being unable to care for her. She apparently had serious skin problems, and was in pretty bad shape due to neglect. She was taken to a nearby shelter, All Breed Dog Rescue, located in Yucaipa California. Kenzie is a 2-year-old Wheaten Scottish Terrier, a gorgeous, sweet little girl with the most beautiful coat of silken golden hue fur. Her Gotcha Day is February 22, and her real birthday is unknown. She came with her microchip and her shots. She lived at the rescue for six months, while Mary, the owner and her team, nurtured her back to health, and totally cleared up her skin problems. They all loved her very much and called her a little lady.
Kenzie came home to Camarillo after a long car ride from Yucaipa, CA, around two hours away. She came home to meet her brother Brandy, our sweet boy, and has been adapting beautifully to her new home. Brandy is slowly getting used to having another Scottie dog in the house, and we have been giving him extra attention and love. She loves taking walks and is a very fast walker. They told us that she was not used to being outside on the grass, and she seems to be loving the grass and the sunshine. Kenzie is extremely affectionate to people and other dogs, and gives us kisses all day long! She has big paws to fill as co-canine executive officer of Modern Scottie Dog but we think she’s up for the job!
