Kelsea on our first trail run together.
This is Kelsea, the newest member of our family. She’s a 2 1/2 year old lab/hound mix we adopted from the shelter last week. The angle of the picture is a little misleading, she bigger than it looks (~60 pounds) – and can rip your arm out of its socket when she catches a scent of a rabbit to chase.
This is our first dog, so we’re going through an adjustment period, but it has been a lot of fun. The kids all love her and she is very gentle with them.
She’s a remarkably well behaved dog, and is very eager to please. We’re mainly working on getting her to stop pulling on the leash when walking, and calming her down when other dogs bark at her. Aside from that, she loves her kennel and goes to it on command, and is very well housebroken. She fits in great with our family and we look forward to having lots of fun together!
