Meet Katrina! She is a Golden Retriever mix, and weighs about 70 pounds. Katrina was born around April 2008, but don’t let her age fool you!
She still has lots of energy. She loves long energetic walks around the block. She will take you on a 30 minute jog if you can keep up! She loves fetching tennis balls and playing with toys. She even loves water! So if your family enjoys water sports, she’ll be right in there with you.
Her owners were in poor health, so they had to give up Katrina. They are sad to see her go, but life’s journey left them no choice. Katrina has a naturally happy disposition and seems to be enjoying whatever life brings. She adjusted very quickly to her new foster home.
Her favorite thing is to be wherever you are. She will keep you company wearing her constant, big, sweet smile. If you allow kisses, she’s happy to give those also. She really enjoys being petted and loves to be by your side whether it’s on the couch, in the yard, or on a car ride for the next great adventure.
Katrina doesn’t require a large yard. All she really wants is to be within three feet of your side. She would be fine living in an apartment or townhome as long as she has at least one person home most of the time, so she can fulfill her need to dote on them.
She would do well as an only dog. If she’s placed with a doggy companion, it would need to be super calm and subservient to her bossy ways. She can be snippy with dogs, so her new home shouldn't have small ones – we don’t want to risk them being injured. She will co-exist with big dogs, but she gets mad when they try to play with her or when they don’t immediately bow down to her orders.
All of our dogs require secure and VISIBLE fencing.
Adoption Fee: $300
* Note to NW Adopters: The adoption fee does not include the cost of transport.
There are many things YOU can do to help us:
1. Adopt! If this Gentle Giant looks like the one for you, fill out an adoption application today!
2. Foster! This is a temporary commitment that gives all dogs in need the assured time to find the loving home they deserve. Your benevolent decision to foster unquestionably determines whether a loving dog gets to live or die.
3. Donate! Safeguarding these Gentle Giants result in expenses that are in upwards $8/day. If veterinary care is needed, the costs exponentiate to $1,000+ for a single dog. Every penny you donate makes an impact when it comes to vet bills! If you were to make a one-time donation of just $25, you would be adding 3 more valuable days to the life of every rescued dog and provide the chance to find the home they have been waiting for their entire life.
As always, all donations are gratefully accepted.
Every dog adopted thru the GPRS program is up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered and on heartworm preventative.
