What APA! says about Kate:

Kate needs a stable home with a person who will make sure she gets exercise and plenty of love. Kate can get "mouthy" when she's playing with her human, so it's important that her owner knows the importance of consistent and gentle corrections. Because she tends to play rough, she's best in a home without small children, cats or other dogs. Kate is a staff favorite at APA!, and the volunteers who work with her can't believe she hasn't found her forever home.

Why APA! says Kate deserves your love:

Kate is the perfect mix of high energy and couch potato. When she hangs out in the APA! office, she plays with her toys for about half an hour — and then takes a nap. She also knows the commands for "sit" and "stay."

This pup is also eager to please and is utterly faithful to those she loves.
