Katia is a sweet girl who is still learning how to perceive her environment. She is shy and will take some time to warm up to you. But once she does, she is very sweet and clearly longs for attention. Katia needs a quiet, calm home with a confident dog sibling whom she can mimick and learn from. Because she is nervous in new situations, she is considered to be a flight risk and needs a secure yard. Katia is still learning to walk on a leash and can master that skill with her new family. What Katia needs most is a patient, understanding family with a big heart ready to love this sweet girl.

Prior to being rescued, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization. As a result, there is often an adjustment period when learning about life as a family pet. We typically do not adopt to homes with children under 6 years old; homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis. Common skills such as house training and leash walking will often take a little extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. The great news is, most of these dogs come around rather quickly and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience.
