At a glance

Age: 4 years

Sex: Female, spayed

Dominant breed: Chow/shepherd mix

Offense: Short on trust

Katie showed up at the shelter with a neglected and unkempt appearance. She cowered and flinched when approached. It’s taken six months, but she’s finally warmed up to her caretakers and stolen their hearts in the process. Patience and persistence have transformed her into an affectionate, loyal pet who happily rolls over for belly rubs. A one-dog home with no small children is preferred, due to Katie’s traumatic history. If you have a soft spot for a dog who’s had it rough, visit Katie at the Coeur d’Alene Animal Shelter at 125 Hazel or call (208) 665-7379 to learn more.
