Katie is still skittish and though she desperately wants to be picked up, she needs an owner who will work with her on overcoming her fear.
Because she is still fearful and is small, we are looking for a home without small children for her. She doesn't do well on a leash yet so a home with a fenced yard or tie out is needed. She gets along well with other dogs and should be fine with cats too, but she would be fine as an only dog if her owner doesn't work long days when she will be alone all day.
Our mission is to place older dogs in the loving homes of older people in the St Louis area. We do, however, take in dogs of all ages and adopt to people of all ages. We do home visits and ask for a $250 adoption donation for adult dogs and $350 for puppies.
We are at the Kirkwood Petco on the first and third Saturdays of each month from 10 am to 2 pm. Check our website for our schedule at www.senordogs4seniors.com. This store is located on Lindbergh just north of I-44. Turn left at the first major stoplight.
