Meet Katherine Hepburn. Here’s what she wrote on Chocolate Chip Dalmation Assistance League’s website.
Hello, I am Katie and I am a pretty, petite, female, 1-2 year old Dalmatian mix that was pulled from a local animal shelter in Maryland. I was very happy to go home with my foster mom and run around in her big yard! I am told that I can be very charming especially when I cock my head and put my ears up.
I am also playful, curious, and energetic. Every day is like a new adventure with a yard to explore, birds to listen to and try to figure out where all the chirping is coming from, and squirrels to watch. I love to play, play, play and run around the yard with my two other foster brothers (Cary and Astro). I also understand the word “ball” and will go look for it and hopefully find it when you tell me to, but I am not going to give it back right away! I like to run around and play with it on my own.
I am very pretty when I sit and am working very hard to not jump up and understand down, but it is easy to forget when I get excited to see someone or smell something yummy in the kitchen! I also would love to come up and sit in your lap, but am undrstanding that I need to be invited or I have to stay on the floor. I am told I am a smart girl and am learning quickly.
At the end of a big day, I like to curl up in my crate and will burrow down for the night in my big, soft blanket. I sleep easily through the night and am ready to go the next day. I also snooze patiently in my crate while you are gone and ready to go when you come home with my tail wagging and wagging.
I am spayed, housebroken, up to date on shots, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. I also have no health problems and love playing with other dogs. A buddy would be wonderful! I would benefit from continued obedience training and clear, consistent direction. If you think I am right for you, please fill out an adoption application.
