June 26: I was adopted!

Katie is a beautiful 8 year old sweet heart who is looking for a loving family to call her own. She is a mellow, quiet girl who is looking for a slower paced family to call her own.

A Canadian CH and retired breeding dog, she has been well loved her whole life.  She was placed into a loving pet home by her breeder, but her owner is now facing significant health issues necessitating that Katie find a family where she will get all of the exercise, attention and care that she needs.  Katie is from a reputable kennel and her breeder continues to provide support for Katie's care and we are working in collaboration with her breeder to find Katie the perfect forever family.

This gentle girl is well mannered, gets along with other dogs and cats, travels well, knows basic commands and is an all around fabulous catch.   Such a good girl!  Katie is a social girl who loves people and would be a wonderful candidate for therapy work.  Her dam was also a therapy dog.
 Katie has been spayed and is  up to date on core vaccines.  Born June 28/07 she is in good health and currently weighs 108 lbs.  Katie's hips are in good shape.  She has advanced arthritis in her knees which was making her stiff and sore so she is now taking metcam to keep her comfortable. It is hoped that as she puts on some muscle mass and builds up her back end that her metacam can be reduced/discontinued.  She is able to get around well and with swimming and proper daily exercise we expect to see great improvement soon.

Katie is being fostered in the Bancroft, ON area.  We will consider homes within a 1 day drive of her location -- this includes parts of Ontario, Quebec, NY, NJ, PA, OH and more.  Her approved adopters must pick her up in person (you will need a passport to cross the border from the US to Canada if you are in the States.)

An adoption donation of $400 to Newf Friends will apply.
