Dog of The Day: Katy From Arizona Humane Society!

Katy is definitely an inquisitive dog at the age of two, and it can be assumed that it was her curiosity that escorted her out onto the streets to live the life as a stray. If the EAMT hadn’t rescued Katy just in time she may not have survived. When she was found, she was covered with infected wounds and she had a blistering sunburn down her back from the scorching summer sun.

Upon her arrival at the Arizona Humane Society, this red merle Australian shepherd was taken to the Second Chance Animal Hospital™ where her wounds were bandaged, and from there she was sent a foster home to recover. Two months later, only a few scars on her back remain and this resilient girl is ready to find a family to share her life with. She is a playful, active and lively dog who has a limitless amount of energy to burn. Agile and athletic, Katy enjoys long games of fetch, splashing around in the garden hose, and going for brisk walks.

Belonging to the cattle dog family, Katy is impressively smart, but she will need a patient coach to teach her basic doggie etiquette. She seems to adore children of all ages, but because of her activity level she may do best with older children. She is shy around dogs at first and a family introduction is required.

She is available NOW at the Arizona Humane Society’s Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion located at 1521 West Dobbins Road in Phoenix. Her adoption fee is only $110. This adoption fee includes her spay surgery, vaccines, a colorful collar and leash, an AHS I.D. tag and a follow-up veterinary exam. For more information about this pet, please call (602) 997-7586 ext. 1045 and ask for animal ID number A309878 or log on to
