She was abused (she has many scars) and thrown out on the streets. She had a litter of 7 puppies, 4 of which survived. She got rescued and brought to Omaha, Nebraska to a foster home. We bought her in May of 2013, just 6 months after having her puppies. She doesn’t like men, because she was abused by a man. She loves attention, doesn’t really like toys, but she does like chasing bunnies and squirrels. Katie loves sleeping and getting attention. When there are babies or little kids in the house (which is rare) she gets jealous when we hold the child. She might bark or nudge whoever is holding the child. When we have a party, we put her in my bedroom and close the door so she doesn’t come in contact with people. She barks because she’s alone and she hears people she’s not used to hearing. Speaking of hearing, she’s had a double ear infection for almost a year. She was on medicine for it, but she kept peeing in the house. Come to realize the medicine was shedding the lining of her kidneys and if she stayed on that medication she would’ve gotten diabetes. Currently she’s on heartworm medicine because she’s had it in the past, and on Frontline for insects. Overall, she’s a good dog to the people she knows and loves. I cant imagine life without her.
