Hi, my name is Katie! I am a beautiful scruffy 2-year-old female Yorkie/Chihuahua mix and I weigh about 6 pounds. I had 3 puppies at a local shelter. Thankfully SBRET rescued all of us! Now that I have taken care of my puppies, I am ready to find my forever home.
The best home for me would be one without small children and without frequent visitors as I get really worked up and bark, growl, and run toward new people in my house. I warm up really quickly though, and end up loving all the people I meet! I am very, very interested in the cat that lives in my foster home. It would be best if a cat did live in my forever home that they be very dog savvy as I will probably chase any cats that run from me.
I ride well in a car. I haven’t had a lot of time with practicing walking on a leash, but I am sure I will do just fine with that. I love to explore the fenced yard at my foster home, but I prefer to explore it with my foster mom in tow because I want her to be wherever I am! I am doing well with potty training, but do still have the occasional accident.
I don’t really feel the need to play with toys or other dogs, although I get along with the other small dogs in my foster home. I cuddle with them, but my favorite thing to do is cuddle with the humans in my foster house and follow them everywhere. I really don’t like it when my foster family leaves the house without me, so it would probably be better if my forever family wasn’t away from the house for a full work day.
I am up-to-date on vaccinations and heartworm preventative and will be spayed before I am adopted. If you are interested in adopting a sweet, laid-back girl like me, fill out an adoption application at sbret.com. My adoption fee is $175.
