Meet Katie

A very sweet natured girl, Katie loves to be around adults, children & other dogs. She walks very well on lead when asked to do so. She is great in the car just lying down & being totally quiet while travelling. She takes treats gently which is very nice & is not a glutton with her food. She is such a quick learner with dazzling intelligent eyes. When having her dinner she is able to sit beautifully & wait for release to her bowl. Unlike any Lab X I've seen before she isn't particularly food obsessed, which is an absolute delight as it means I can happily leave her unattended at meal times knowing she’s not harassing my other dog for more food or trying to steal anything from her.

I’d encourage a family with another dog to consider Katie as she’d make a great friend & companion. She will not do well being left alone all day while you’re out at work. I’d guess she has not had this happen prior as she gets stressed if alone & will ultimately voice her anxiety.
She is not good with cats or small animals. We have 3 Guinea Pigs & she raked their cage trying to get inside to chase them. I am working with her with on lead training & treats when she’s in proximity to them & she is improving but her natural tendency is to chase. Therefore a home without cats is advisable.
A home with another dog is preferable but not a prerequisite providing you can give her the attention she deserves.
