Kacie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Kacie's Story...
Kacie is needing someone to love her. She is an older girl but still enjoys playing with other dogs and going for leisurely walks around the neighbourhood. She is a mid sized, loving and loyal pet who would enjoy a quieter home with someone who would enjoy a well behaved, affectionate companion.

Kacie came into our care when her owner was too ill to care for her any longer. Kacie needed some medical attention which has been taken care of and is now ready to find her new home. She has one spot on her back that has been shaved, but the hair is slowly growing back and she will soon look her beautiful self.

Kacie is currently being fostered in a home with young children, another dog and cats. She has shown herself to be a wonderful family pet. She would do well with a first time dog owner or someone that would like an older, more relaxed companion. Kacie weighs just over 40 lbs and is aproximately 7 – 9 years old.

Here is what her foster mom had to say:

Kacie is such a fantastic dog!
She will not go on furniture- even when invited to. She really needs a dog bed.
LOVES her food BUT MUST be mixed with wet food or she wont eat at all.
Loves short walks (15 minutes or so) she slows down – we do these walks 4 or 5 times a day.

She LOVES to be patted and can still play like a puppy with my dog.

She has a gentle nature and is happy just to be in the same room with you.
She knows commands of sit, down, come and shake a paw.
She is very interested in what goes on outside the front door and will bark once or twice if someone is walking by (non-aggressive).

She is a little cranky when meeting new dogs on her walks- but you just have to give her a minute to sniff a bit.
She would be great with older kids who aren’t going to grab and grope at her- she just wants a quiet home where she gets love and attention.

She needs gentleness.
No problem with cats- they don’t seem to interest her.
The patch of fur that was shaved is starting to grow in.

If you have room in your life for Kacie, please go to our website and submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kacie, a Hamilton Collie/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Labrador Retriever for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Collie/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamilton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hamilton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Collie/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
