Ms Katie is ready for her forever home.  Loyal, loving and obedient.   She knows place, sit, let's go, and here.   She is crate trained and leash trained as well.   Katie has fabulous recall and will return immediately.  Katie is the smartest working girl ever. 

Katie runs with the pack (or more accurately, runs the pack) she is definitely an alpha personality.  She is German Shepherd and Cattle Dog.  Two working breeds that need a job and a lot of stimulus.   She goes non stop and keeps everyone on their toes.  She will be a great running companion.   She is a talker and has a lot to say.

Smart!   She figured out the doggie door weeks before I would have approved, but there is no stopping her when she sets her mind to learning something.

She sits for treats. Not because she was trained to, but because she watched the pack and learned. She is an exceptional dog.

She requires an active home.  Because of her intelligence, she will become bored and then destructive which will not make anyone happy.  Katie is a pleaser and learns very quickly.

Her perfect home will be older children, an active family and definitely a yard. Katie will do best with a companion dog in the family.  She is not an apartment  or mobil home appropriate.     If you  can provide Katie with the stimulous and love that she will require, she will be an awesome dog.


Please contact for more information about this dog. You can apply online by clicking on Application .

Puppies that are under 4 months old cannot be adopted outside of our Veterinary Service area.  Please call for specific locations.

Children under 8 years old often are not a good match for our puppies and dogs.   In order to protect both, your child and our rescued dogs/puppies from harm, we seldom if ever adopt to families with young children.

Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our adoption events.  Thank you for considering a rescue!

Puppies cannot be adopted outside of the Houston area until they are spay/neutered after they are 4 months old.

It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
