Katey was recently rescued, and she hasn't been in her foster home very long.  

Katey is an 8-year old Miniature Pincher.  She weighs 6 lbs, she is spayed and she is heartworm negative.  She came into a shelter injured with a fractured pelvis and dislocated hip and was there for a week before AAU pulled her.  She had emergency FHO surgery the next day.  FHO surgery removes the ball portion of the ball/socket hip joint when it cannot be repaired.  Amazingly the body will form a false joint from scar tissue.

She also has fairly significant cataracts.  She can definitely see shadows/movement, but due to her movements being restricted, I don't know how well she can see to get around.  She seems to be housetrained, but she is being taken outside to potty on a schedule since she can’t walk by herself yet.  

Despite the pain she had to be in, she is one of the sweetest minpins I’ve ever known.  She can’t actively play, but she does not seem to have any problems with other dogs, large or small, or with people.  She loves to sit in your lap or at least beside you within touching distance and while crate trained, will bark for a while if she wants your attention.

The pelvic fractures have to heal on their own and she has to go through 6-8 weeks of rehabilitation from the FHO surgery although the time may vary as each dog responds differently.  She has some neurological deficits on the right side both front and rear as well as circling when she walks.  These may or may not resolve with rehab.  She is available for pre-adoption, but the earliest she will be to go home with an adopter is the end of December.

The first step in adopting or meeting any of our dogs is to fill out an adoption application on www.angelsrescue.org.
Your application will be assigned to someone in our organization that will review it and contact you to discuss it. Please allow us at least 3 business days to contact you. We require a meet and greet with your current dogs (if applicable) and all family members (if possible) and a home check.
