A Word from Katie
Hi. My name is Katie. I came to TIRR Rescue in 2016 from Houston, where I was a street dog.
I lived in a couple of foster homes, but I am an excellent escape artist and it was very hard for my foster and rescue people to catch me. I became what they call a "flight risk," so I can no longer be left alone in a yard at all.
Because of my time on the streets, I am very distrustful of humans. I don't so much fear them as just simply not trust them. I am ok with kids - their words and actions don't conflict like they do with so many adults.
However, I am slowly learning to trust my rescue people. I could use an adopter who has lots of time to spend with me, working to gain my trust and build my confidence. I’m a very sweet girl once I get to know you.
If you think you might be my forever family, be sure to contact my rescue people!

Katie has an outstanding temperament. She is slowly learning to trust adults. She trusts children and gets along well with other dogs. Once she is bonded, it will last a lifetime. Her adopted will need to be someone with experience, as Katie is both an escape artist and a flight risk. However, once she feels safe somewhere, she will be a great companion.
