This gorgeous 45-pound, two-year-old Kelpie mix can fetch a ball or frisbee, and if you don't throw it for her she will. She's always up for a long hike and her willingness to check in with you from wherever she is means you can trust her off-leash. She runs five-miles at a stretch and loves the water - plunging gleefully into puddles, ponds, and water fountains just because they're there. Happily she is drip-dry. (Seriously, her stunning white coat with fawn-colored spots seems to throw off water and dirt in about five minutes - very convenient!) And when she loves you she will make you feel as if you're the most special and wonderful person in the world. Your arrival will trigger spinning and grinning. She'll duck her head, reach for your hand to give you a lick, snuggle into your arms. She is an entire welcome committee packed into the body of one compact and beautiful dog. She is also whip smart, highly athletic, and a great candidate for obedience, agility, or -- if you happen to have a herd of sheep -- a herding job. And she's great at the dog park because she gets along with every dog she meets, plus she'll come the moment you call her - even if it means interrupting her play, she'll rush over to you. She's also great in the car, house-trained, and will loves learning new tricks. Let it be said that Katya is discriminating. This is not a goofy, in-your-face, wag-your-tail at everyone type of dog. She likes to be won over. But once she has been she's your friend for life. For her to thrive she'll need to live in a house where there are no children younger than 16. She finds little-kid energy a little scary. She'll also do best if she's the only dog and get lots of exercise. She needs someone gentle and patient since, like many of her breed, she is sensitive.
