Jan 11/14:  Katie joined a forever family!

Meet Katie, a super sweet girl who has a whole lot of enthusiasm for life.  She loves to get out and explore and is a friendly and affectionate girl who is looking for the stability of a loving home.  Katie has been waiting for the right family for far too long.

Woo-hoo, I love swimming in the pool at the K-9 Country Inn!
Katie likes to be active and loves to go for walks, go swimming and just get out and have fun.  She is well suited to a country home where she will have lots of opportunities to romp and play.

Her leash manners need work when she is around other animals, especially cats.  She is currently enrolled in classes to work on her manners and with the help of a number of volunteer handlers Katie is improving greatly.  She is boarding at a training facility and doing really well in this environment.

Katie knows basic commands, has lovely house manners and is easy to get along with.   After her exercise time is complete she'd be happy to chill out at your feet and relax, snoring away contentedly.

Katie loves attention and adores being hugged, petted, getting ear scratches, belly rubs and more.  She has a lot of love to give!  If you are looking for a cuddly Newf she's your gal!

Katie would very much love to live with a mild mannered dog that enjoys the occasional romp. Katie has a strong prey drive and loves to chase cats.  She is not suited to a home with a cat or other small animals roaming about.


Katie came to Newf Friends on January 22/12 after her owner decided she'd be better in a home where she would have space to exercise.   Katie was placed into an adoptive home but things changed with her adopters and Katie came back to Newf Friends.

Katie  was born May 27, 2008 so she is 5  years old. She has been spayed and her vaccines are up to date.  She's not a big girl, but she does have a lot of love to give!

Katie is being fostered in the Cookstown area. Her new family will need to pick her up in person.  The typical adoption donation of $500  is reduced to $400 to offset the cost of  her training needs.  If you think you'd like to adopt Katie, fill out an adoption application and email it back to us.  A securely fenced yard is a must for Katie and is non-negotiable - given her love of chasing cats, and electric fence will not qualify.
