Katie. Beautiful Katie. 4 yr old mixed breed dog. She weighs about 50lbs right now but I think she could stand to gain some weight.
Katie is a sweet girl that truly needed the help of our rescue. This girl was hit by a car, leaving her with a dislocated hip. She spent her time in the shelter trembling on her bed, with eyes that yearn for attention and comfort. Since her rescue Katie has come a long way. Her hip does not seem to bother her at all. She has a cone on her neck to keep her from licking the scrape on her front leg. She will be spayed the last week of September and will be ready for her new home after that.
Even though nobody came to claim Katie when she was in the kennel, she must have belonged to somebody who loved her once upon a time. She is super friendly. She is housetrained. She walks well on a leash and quite enjoys her walks. We have started to do a bit of running as well and she is all up for it. She knows her basic commands and listens very well. She loves her treats and will do anything for them. If her new owner wanted to teach her agility or new tricks, she would be so happy.
Katie is fearful of new situations and she will bark if somebody comes into the house or a dog or person approaches quickly. I have come to learn that barking is Katie’s way of protecting herself. I don’t see any signs of her wanting to hurt anybody. She loves meeting new people but it needs to be done on her terms. It usually only takes a couple of seconds before she calms down and wants to meet her new friend. Once she warms up, she will smother you with hugs and kisses. She would like an owner that will continue to work with this reaction and get her to a place where she won’t be as nervous in new situations and people won’t be afraid of that deep voice of hers.
Katie would love an active couple. She would be a great dog for people who love to walk or jog or hike. She is extremely grateful for being taken out of that cold kennel. She will be a very loyal and loving girl in her new home.
Again, Katie will be ready for adoption after her her spay is done and she is healed (October), but we are accepting applications now.
Her bio will be updated as she settles into her foster home. In the meantime you can contact her foster mom Angie at kingtwins8
