I have ordered an Embark DNA kit for this young lady! 😍 With her having been bred by an irresponsible breeder and being a double merle I have really been wanting to health test her. It’ll also be interesting to see what breed she truly is. My understanding was that she is pure Australian Shepherd, but coming from a backyard breeder (before the wonderful rescue I adopted her from) and being quite petite with a shorter coat I am curious to see her results. Regardless, she is exactly what I was searching for, an amazingly gentle, calm, affectionate, cuddly, easygoing pup who lights up whatever room she enters. Kiva brings so much joy to my life, the least I can do is make sure that I give her the best life I possibly can ❤️ Side note, if you zoom up on this photo her irregular/constantly dilated pupil is visible in her left eye.
