Katherine Hepburn is so excited to find her forever home. She is very loving and wants nothing more than to be a part of all activities with her new family. If Katherine were a human, she’d be a long-haul trucker. She loves to ride in the car and is always up for an adventure!
Katherine is gentle when meeting unfamiliar people and mostly ignores them unless she is asked to approach them. She has been shy in her foster home but is starting to come out of her shell and wants nothing more than to please. Katherine requires slow, controlled introductions when meeting new dogs but becomes comfortable around them once she has time to warm up. She would do best in a home without smaller dogs but may do okay in a home with cats as she currently shares her foster home with them. Katherine rides well in the car, has done well at the veterinarian’s office, and isn’t affected by loud noises. She has mastered most basic obedience commands and is working on controlling her prey drive around smaller animals and staying longer in place when asked.
Katherine’s ideal home would be one where she could receive as much love and affection as she desires! She ultimately just wants to please her handler and can be very gentle and, at times, unsure. A confident but quiet handler would be a great match for her to continue her confidence building and training. Katherine loves to be with her people and would enjoy a home where she could join activities such as hiking, running, boating, or even just long walks. Katherine Hepburn can’t wait to snuggle her way right into your family!
West Coast adoptions only, HOWEVER, if application is strong we may consider placement in other Western US states.
Our adoption process includes- completion of an application, followed by a telephone interview. If that goes well, we will arrange for a home visit.
Adoption Donation: $500.00
Transport along Interstate 5 (Bakersfield, CA to Bellingham, WA) is available but cost not included in adoption fee.
For all inquiries, please fill out our adoption application first, as the volunteer answering emails is probably not the coordinator for the specific foster home/dog.
