Adoptable Pet of the Week: Kita

The newest Adoptable Pet of the Week is Kita! Say hello to this 9-year-old Shepherd mix who is the perfect furry companion. This easygoing and sweet girl is on the hunt for her forever home.

Her friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation had a few things to share about her:

Meet Kita, a senior dog who would be the perfect companion for anyone wanting an easygoing, sweet and loving companion. This gorgeous girl is nine years old.

She absolutely loves to go walking and exploring her neighborhood. Kita is super friendly around people — whether they are guests in your home or strangers out on the trails. Everyone is greeted with a wagging tail and happy wiggles! Kita is still learning the finer points of walking on a leash.

During the day, Kita enjoys looking out windows (loves checking out squirrels!) or curling up on a couch. She is also very happy to keep you company while you work — lying under a desk is another favorite spot of hers. She truly is a pleasure to have around!

Kita prefers not to be crated. Since she is so respectful of our home and has never damaged anything, we let her sleep on her bed or on a couch at night. Kita is fully housebroken and since being in our home she has had no accidents.

Kita would love to be your only dog, or with a calm smaller dog. She tends to be afraid of bigger dogs. We haven’t tried her with cats. Her calm, loving temperament would make her a wonderful addition to a home.

Is Kita the furry companion you’ve been searching for? Read more about Kita and about how to adopt by checking out her complete profile!
