Meet Katrina! She is a mix of Great Pyrenees and Golden Retriever, and weighs in at about 60 pounds. Well, right now she’s more like a hefty 80, so we’re working on that.
Katrina was born around April 2008, but don’t let her age fool you! She has more Golden-type of energy than Pyr. She loves long energetic walks around the block. She will jog the whole way if you can keep up!
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 lives to be by your side whether it’s on the couch, in the yard, or on a car ride for the next great adventure. She even loves water! So if your family enjoys water sports, she’ll be right in there with you.
Her owner was in poor health, so she had to give up Katrina. But Katrina has a naturally happy disposition and seems to be enjoying whatever life brings. She is great with kids and good with cats.
She would do well as an only dog as long as her person is home most of the time and takes time to let her know she’s loved. If she’s placed with a doggy companion, it would need to be super calm and willing to be subservient to her bossy ways.
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.
