Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Poodle (Toy) / Mixed (long coat)
Weight: 9 lbs
Height: estimated 10 in
Estimated Birthdate: 8/9/2009
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Owner release to a NC shelter for being "too old"
Special Needs: Katie had Giardia in October but has since healed and is back to being herself. We're suspicious that under times of stress, she may get an upset tummy more easily than other dogs. She's a sensitive kind of girl. Her eyes were really gunky and cloudy when she first got here but have since improved.
What kind of home would be best for me: Katie wants an easy going and calm home. She could be a work at home single person's bestest quiet friend or live happily with an older person who is looking for company but not necessarily a needy, in your lap kind of girl. Katie is equally independent and personable. Katie has been with our rescue getting medically ready for her forever home since August 2019. She is finally ready and eager to meet her new family!
What is my personality like: Katie is a spunky little old lady! When the mood strikes her she hops, skips and jumps around like she wants to play. Even though she can be playful sometimes she just doesn't want to be bothered and will let you know by snapping at your hands. It's okay though, there is no power to her bite even though she thinks there is. After her dental, she was left with just 6 teeth.
Katie does well with her playgroup of older dogs. If she is to have canine buddies, she would do best with older dogs that match her personality. She has no desire to be around any rambunctious puppies. Katie is content snuggled up in her crate and at moments doesn't even want to come out. She is very happy to receive treats and eats her food at a normal pace. Katie can be picky when it comes to food and prefers only canned or something easy for her to eat.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Cautious at first.
Tips and Tidbits: Katie's estimated birthday is 8/9/2009.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
