KATIE NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!!

Come meet KATIE and other great adoptable dogs this Sunday (June 26th) from 12-3 pm at the Petsmart in Silver Spring (12020 Cherry Hill Rd, Silver Spring, MD 20904)!

Name:  Katie      Best Guess for Breed:  Heeler mix  

 

Best Guess for Age:  4 years as of April 2022     SEX:  Female

 

Approximate Weight:  35 lbs

 

Gets Along With:  Katie has done well with other dogs in the shelter. We have tested Katie with some of the cats at the shelter, and she did not seem particularly interested in chasing or pouncing on the cat. While this is a positive sign that Katie could live with a cat, she has not done so to our knowledge. If you have cats in your home, we are happy to discuss with you how to best introduce a new pup to your pack! We haven't seen her with kids but she can be tested.

 

Currently Living at:  DC area foster home 

 

Special adoption considerations: Katie tested positive for heartworm disease and has been treated on 5/30/2022. Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites. Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, most dogs that were heartworm positive often suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative.  Most heartworm dogs can resume full active and normal lives, but need to be kept calm for 4-6 weeks after treatment. We are happy to talk more in depth about heartworm disease and treatment during the screening process. Retesting is recommended 6 months after treatment to confirm they are heartworm negative.

 

As you can see in the photos, Katie's right hind leg looks off. It was an old injury, and it has since been amputated. 

 

Katie is Looking For:  Her forever home! This cutie can't wait to meet her new humans and go on all those amazing adventures with them - long sniffy walks, romps in the park, and trips to all those wonderful places. Sure, she's a tripod but that won't slow her down one bit - heelers have energy to spare! Most of all, though, she wants to know she's safe and loved, under her own roof, every time the sun goes down. In exchange, she promises loyal companionship and tail wags and kisses. What do you say? Does that sound like a fair trade?

 

What My Foster Says About Me:  We will update this once she has arrived in the DC area and spent some time with her foster

 

Lucky Dog cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken.  All of our dogs are working on their crate training. 

TO ADOPT:  The adoption fee for this dog is $475, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment.  If you are interested in adopting, please complete the Adoption Questionnaire online HERE .

 

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue does our best to provide accurate information about the dogs we have for adoption. That said, we cannot make any guarantees about age, breed or temperament.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

The adoption process begins when you submit an adoption application either online or at an adoption event. The individual responsible for the dog you are interested in adopting - a position we call the “adoption coordinator” - will then set up a time to discuss your application over the telephone. The adoption coordinator will check your vet reference to make sure all current and past pets were kept up-to-date with their shots and medical care. The adoption coordinator will also set up a home visit with one of our trained volunteers. That individual will come to your home to ensure that it is a safe environment, to confirm that everyone in the home is on board with adopting a dog, and to discuss any other questions you may have about dog adoption!
