Introducing Karissa

Karissa is a sweet, playful Velcro Springer in need of a loving Forever Home. This good girl gets along well with everyone – dogs, adults and kids. She is adaptable and easygoing and would fit in well with almost any family willing to spend plenty of time with her.

She is smart and obedient and knows the basic “Sit” and “Stay” commands. Karissa’s one issue is that she does not like being crated when no one is home. Because she is generally well-behaved, she does fine when left uncrated. She does sleep in her crate at night.

In addition to being kind and gentle on the inside, she is strikingly beautiful on the outside. She has a few pretty white markings that stand out against a mostly solid black coat and beautiful medium brown, expressive eyes.

Karissa absolutely LOVES to play with other dogs, so she would be so happy in a Forever Home with another young dog. She was in foster care with two other young female Springers (now adopted out) and the girls were all best friends. She also loves every human she meets and makes new friends easily.

First, Karissa needs to complete her heartworm treatment  and then she will be  healthy and ready to share the Springer love with her adopters. She will be ready in mid-August. Do you have room in her heart – and in your home – for this pretty girl?
