Additional Details:

Catalpa's litter were all named for types of trees with the Superior prefix. She initially came in from the Melbourne Race track 2.5 years ago and has been in an adoptive home since then. Cate also raced some of her 56 races at Derby Lane, Sanford Orlando and Mardi Gras tracks in Florida. She only won 4 races, so was moved around in hopes her owners could find a track that she would be competitive at, but that wasn't to be the case. In her last race she wasn't paying attention and missed the break out of the box. She still managed to come in 6th, but they decided to retire her. Cate raced at 62lbs and is light fawn female that turned 5 on June 27th. She has been in an adoptive home for 2.5 years. Her owner has health issues and is unable to care for Cate, so asked us to help re-home her. Her sire is Shonn and her dam is Superior Tingler. Catalpa is a very friendly girl that was hard to get pictures of because she would run right over for an extreme closeup as soon as she saw anyone come in. She really likes people and is a very happy, outgoing girl. Catalpa passed her cat and small dog tests and has been living with 2 cats and another dog in her adoptive home. She has been living with small children as well and really likes children. The only problem they reported was that they had to put her up in a crate when the kids were eating because Cate would try to steal the food and would growl if anyone tried to take the food away. She also didn't like anyone trying to take her dog food when she was eating. Even though she really likes small kids we think she would do best in a home with older kids that weren't likely to drop food and understood to leave her alone when she is eating. Cate is fine doing a few steps but has never had to do long flights of steps and really isn't comfortable with a lot of stairs. She is fine walking on shiny wood floors. Cate never gets up on the furniture. She is quiet in her crate so could be an apartment dog, if it was a ground floor apartment. She also potties well on leash and walks on leash well, so doesn't need a fenced yard if her new owners were willing to leash walk her to potty. Cate is afraid of thunderstorms and fireworks. Her owner sent her with her things: a large crate, bed, and collar and leash. Cate is already home acclimated, is up to date on her vetting and is ready to go home.
