Meet Katie!

My foster mom thinks I am Wonder Woman. I think I have really impressed her with my intelligence. After only five days in foster care, I have learned how to eagerly walk on a leash, and I do love to go for a walk! I am learning how to sit on command, too. I almost have that down pat! I am completely housetrained with a doggy door, and I love those wonderful chicken jerky treats I get every morning as soon as Mom walks into the kitchen. I didn't know life could be so good. I am so happy that the whole back half of my body wiggles along with my tail every time I see Mom and Dad. I get along just fine with my foster sisters, and I am learning how to play with them - it is so much fun!

Katie is a backyard breeder surrender, and she has surprised her foster mom with her intelligence. She learned how to walk on a leash with her first lesson, and she is just so eager to please. Katie is shy at first, but she has that typical happy Griffy personality once she settles in and gets to know you. She has the most beautiful expressive eyes her foster mother has ever seen. Katie is five years old and weighs 20 pounds, but needs to lose some weight. She has been spayed, microchipped, and she is on heartworm preventative and up to date on her vaccinations. All she needs now is a forever home.

Katie is located near Mobile, Alabama.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Carol.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
