Meet Caity

Meet Caity! This beautiful golden mix came to us locally, matted, dirty, and extremely scared. But, the saddest thing we quickly noted was Caity's fear of humans, especially men. This told us so much about her past but we have been working hard to change her future. It has required extensive time, patience and rehabilitation to teach Caity that hands and feet are positive.

Caity is in a foster home with several other dogs and gets along with everyone. She has learned to live with a cat, opposite a baby gate. Her reaction with any cats in the home would need to be assessed at the home visit but we would prefer to place her in a home without cats given her prey drive.

Caity will need a loving and patient forever home. With a little kindness and patience, Caity will reward you with a loving and sweet companion. Given Caity's fear of humans, she will need a quieter home without children or older children over the age of 12. Caity would prefer to go to a home with another dog as she learns to trust humans by watching the other dogs in the home.

Upon entering our program, Caity had an extreme and fearful reaction to the crate. With patience, time and training, Caity will now enter the crate on command. She will even remain there quietly for several hours. Caity does not need to be crate trained as she is good in the home and is not destructive.

Caity is house broken, spayed and up to date on vaccines.

Caity's date of birth is 08.01.2013.

** PLEASE NOTE: ALL PETS ON OUR PETFINDER SITE ARE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION. WE UPDATE THIS LIST DAILY** We do not mark a dog as adopted until all steps are completed, including a home visit.

**NOTE: ALL of our dogs are fostered locally a minimum of 2 weeks. Adopting a dog that has been fostered locally is a very important consideration. Animals that are fostered locally in private homes allow the fosters to learn more about the dogs personality and allows for making the best match possible. Also, animals that are transported into our area and placed directly without being fostered locally often carry diseases, including parvo and distemper. Animals can also become ill on transports to the northeast, as they are exposed to other animals in route. If you have any questions regarding these diseases and the risks of not adopting locally, please contact your vet.

PLEASE consider any group that does not require a home visit. If they are not conducting a home visit consider if they truly care about their dogs. As an organization, we invest a significant amount of time into all of our dogs, including crate training, house breaking, obedience training, and determining each dog's personality to consider making the best match possible.
