*FOR ALL QUESTIONS RELATING TO KATHERINE, PLEASE CONTACT email@example.com*
Katherine appears to be an Australian cattle dog-beagle mix, about 9 years old, and weighs about 35 pounds, with a medium energy level. In the last bad snowstorm of the winter, she appeared, wet and cold, on a WV doorstep. Nobody ever claimed her. Katherine is a happy little soul, who almost always has a big smile on her face. She gets along fine with cats in her Pittsburgh-area foster home. Although she has lived with and learned to tolerate dogs of all sizes, she’s dog-selective, and really not that interested in anyone but her people. She would be the happiest dog on earth if she had a human or two just for her own little self, and didn’t have to share!
Katherine has been very healthy. She loves going for walks, and a mile or two is no problem for her. She follows her nose, and wants to chase if she sees a critter, which probably reflects those beagle genes. She also loves balls and chew toys, and is very food-motivated. She will do just about anything for a treat. Somebody trained this girl, and she sits beautifully for her meals. Her beagle side also shows up in a very chatty personality—she vocalizes a lot, especially if she’s excited. And mealtime makes her very excited! But she’ll lie down while her food dish is being filled, if told to.
Katherine is adorably funny. She loves being brushed and petted, and nothing is better than a good scratching on her rump! When she trots along, her little ears flop up and down like a cartoon dog’s. At treat time, she sits up and begs like a little groundhog.
Katherine takes the job of guarding the house very seriously. Nobody is going to sneak up on her watch. While she raises a ruckus, she soon settles down once she finds out visitors are friendly. At night, she’s happy to go into her crate to sleep—it is her own safe place. (Though she could probably be easily persuaded to share someone else’s bedroom, if asked!)
Katherine hasn’t been around children in her foster home, but she does well with adults. She is looking for somebody to focus all her adoration on, and will make a devoted companion, especially for someone with time to spend loving her back.
Katherine is spayed and up to date on vaccinations. She is being fostered in Bridgeville, PA. For questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
