Kia is a gorgeous blue and white pit bull pup who suffers from a horrible birth defect. When she was born, her breeders were shocked when they saw her face and realized she had a cleft lip. In other words, part of her face is missing and she really only has half a nose. Because of the deformity, her teeth on the left side grew upwards rather than straight like most dogs.
Kia’s unusual looks made it hard for her to find her perfect forever home. Unfortunately, when she did a home they thought would be forever, she was abandoned. After being abandoned three different times for no reason other than her unusual looks, she found herself living with Lindsey Christiansen.
Lindsey knew that she was meant to be Kia’s forever home, and that’s exactly what she’s become. Lindsey tells people that the only problem that Kia has with her cleft lip is that she tends to slobber when drinking water and she “snores like a freight train” because of the way her lip flaps. We’re so glad that Kia found a home to love and care for her like she was always meant to.
