Kate Is Just Sitting On The Porch
RAINBOW 05-14-21: Kate is playful, smart but goofy, loving but mischievous, cuddle but conceited, charmers but sneaky in other words a true character. This very special girls that come from a severe background of neglect and have recovered with a strong will to live, an amazing inner strength and an inability to quit or give up on life.
Kate loves people and a few good cats, as long as they all meet her standards of quality. This bundle of all things good loves long sits in your lap, walks at their designated pace, play time with their paw picked friends and all meals on time. She has a special ability to see your soul, she knows when you are frightened, when you are ill, when you are happy and definitely when you are vulnerable to letting they coax you into giving them more treats than normal. Kate is a once in a life time find of fun and joy.
Kate is calmer then her littermates, she loves car rides, trips to the park, playing in the water, chasing away the ghosts and of course protecting their family and their possessions from all the evil doers. There is absolutely no way to keep from smiling when you are around these very special girl.
There are so many sweet pups out there that are waiting for a loving forever home, and it is hard to imagine that people will choose to BUY an expensive dog when they can easily fall in love with a wonderful rescue dog! There are so many in need, and the leading cause is the lack of spaying and neutering being done. Something so simple would help end the countless homeless litters that are turned in at shelters. Worse yet, dumped on the side of the road. Often, these puppies endure horrible conditions trying to survive and grow up to be a homeless adult that is not fixed, perpetuating the cycle. Luckily, there are wonderful humans out there, too. They work tirelessly to rescue these pups and find them their forever homes. It is truly a labor of love, but when you look at the sweet faces of puppies like Kate, how could anyone resist??
When choosing a breed that is right for your family a little research will go a long way. Although we can rarely be 100% accurate about the breeds of our pups, we are able to learn the dominant breed. Kate is mostly Black Labrador. Labs are known as “family dogs”. The sweet-faced, lovable Labrador Retriever is America’s most popular dog breed. Labs are friendly, outgoing, and high-spirited companions who have more than enough affection to go around for a family looking for a medium-to-large dog. Labs are famously friendly. They are companionable housemates who bond with the whole family, and they socialize well with neighbor dogs and humans alike. But don’t mistake their easy going personality for low energy. The Lab can be an enthusiastic athlete that requires lots of exercise, like swimming and playing fetch to keep physically and mentally fit.
