Kara • Female •  2 years • Adopted!  Please return to
 the Home page to start your search for available dogs!  Thank you!

KARA is an energetic two-year old with a soft, silky, smooth coat. She is about 45 pounds and ready to love her way into your heart. When she looks at you with that one blue eye and one brown eye you will want to melt. And if you are one for hugs and kisses she is the right gal! She is just as happy being outside with you as she is cuddled up on the couch watching TV.


KARA is house trained; she has not had an accident since joining our little club. She is also crate trained. She willingly goes into her crate as she knows it meal or treat time. KARA sleeps peacefully all night and waits patiently for the morning routine to begin. Other than overnight she is free to roam about the house or go outside via the doggy door whenever she likes. Her preference is to stay close to her person. We keep plenty of dog bones and toys around as she loves to chew them. KARA gets along well with all of our dogs but will have to be watched around cats. She has shown great interest in our (dog savvy) cat, but it’s probably best Kara be placed in a cat-free household.  

KARA came to us with a bob tail and an issue with her back left leg. It seems she suffered a broken leg that was not addressed and healed without treatment. She does not let that slow her down. It does not cause her discomfort and it’s not anything to which she can do further damage. We know she had little opportunity to use the leg before coming to us, but with all the exercise she gets these days she uses it more and more each week. Her playtime with Newt has really helped. She’ll chase him all over the yard as he runs after birds & tennis balls. 

KARA is micro-chipped, spayed, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations.
