Keeper is a small dog, probably a corgi mix, estimated to be 8 to 10 years old. She was found along a road by a young man. He cared for her for around 3 weeks, but was unable to keep her, so Florence agreed to take her in.
Keeper is losing her vision and hearing. After her blood test results improve, she will have surgery for cataracts in order to try to save her vision. Most of her fur is soft and beautiful, but she has a skin condition on her lower back that she is being treated for.
The man who found her called her Lucy. The day she arrived, some teenage volunteers were here. They fell in love with her, and all day long they kept asking Florence if she was going to keep her. So Florence renamed her Keeper.
Keeper loves being outside, but at first she would hide in the bushes, and we'd have to go searching for her. She is finally learning to stand at the front door when she wants to come in, like at feeding time.
Florence calls her a "sleep-a-holic" because she spends most of her day sleeping.
Keeper shortly after she arrived (she is receiving treatment for her skin problem)
