Katia "Katie" came to us on October 20 from a rural shelter where space can run out quickly. She is a sweet little girl who is somewhat shy (scared) and takes a few minutes to warm up to strangers. It appears she has not been treated kindly in the past. Once she knows you she gives kisses, hugs, and will be in your lap.
Katie is a highly active dog. She would chase the birds from the bird feeder for hours if I let her. She plays nicely with the other dogs in the home. I started taking her to “daycare” two days per week at another foster’s house with my dogs. So there are 8-9 dogs to play with.
Katie did not know what toys or nyla bones were when she arrived. She has learned to like those from my dogs. She jumps in the car for a ride, is learning about crate training and doing well with house breaking. She reminds me of a border collie personality, has to be doing things and have a job to do. I have started her on fetch and tennis ball work to give her that job. Katie is very smart, you can literally see the wheels turning. She is food motivated.
Katie would enjoy patient parents who have a fenced yard to play in and explore (bird feeder too). She needs her person around most of the time. Another well-adjusted dog to learn from is preferred. Older children would be best due to her activity level. She would enjoy learning new things especially if treats were involved.
For more information please contact her foster Denise at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all animals before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the animals shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the animal is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Animals MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our animals back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted animal.
The Petfinder.com system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our animals. Visual breed identification in animals is unreliable so for most of the animals we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each animal as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our animals based on personality, not by breed label.
