Katie is a 1 1/2 year old yellow lab, possible Vizsla mix, with golden retriever somewhere in there dog. Truth is, we are not quite sure what Katie is mixed with, but there is a little bit of a golden retriever coat we can see (or think we see).
Katie was surrendered by her owner of 4 weeks, as he was working 100 plus hours a week and didn't have time to properly care for her. Katie Star was left in care of the roommate, who unfortunately forgot to feed her from time to time.
Thankfully she ended up in our care after the owner saw that Katie needed a better life than he could currently offer. She was only in this home a month and prior was found as a stray along side of the road. So poor little Katie Star's had at least 3 homes we know of and is now in a foster home. :(
We are looking for a stable, loving and forever home for Katie (real name Star--Katie for bookkeeping purposes).
Katie is good with other dogs and is very sweet around people. This dog can run like the wind, so she will need a family who has lots of time for walking and exercise so she can burn off some energy. Speaking of a leash, Katie needs to learn how to walk a little better on a leash and is learning about the idea of being housebroken. This girl absolutely loves attention and adores her people.
Katie recieved a very clean bill of health, other than a slight ear infection which is being treated. She is ready when you are to go to her forever home. We want this home to absolutely be the "it" home! If you would like to adopt a great dog with lots of love, please consider this sweet girl.
Since we really have no firm history on this dog, we ask to have a home without children or children at least 10 and over.
If you would like to be considered to adopt Katie Star or another golden retriever, please read our adoption adoption policies
and follow the directions from there.
