Katy in Dallas, TX

Katy is a sweet 11-year-old Black and Tan girl. Her prior owner became ill and friends at the assisted living tried to care for her and ultimately gave her to the rescue. She came to us a scared girl and has been slowly relaxing and learning to trust. We do not know her exact birthday, but the vet thinks she is around 11-years- old. 

She is very shy but will warm up to you with time. She is not a lapdog yet but with time and trust that could change. She gets along with other dogs and loves her evening walks. Katy also enjoys spending time in the backyard and chasing the squirrels. Katy loves her beds and has one in each room so she is comfortable. She is quite spoiled with her foster mom.

Katy is potty trained but can only hold it for a few hours. She sometimes has accidents in the night or if someone is gone for too long. At her foster mom’s house she is sleeping in a playpen at night and will use a pee pad if she cannot make it throughout the night. The sweet senior lady just can’t hold it in as long anymore. 

Katy recently just had her teeth cleaned and is current on vaccines. She is also on a heartworm preventative. She has a heart murmur grade 4 that does not require medication at this time. All her recent labs came back good.

Katy needs a quiet and calm household. She needs a forever home that will be patient with her as she learns to trust them.
