Katie is a four year old Great Pyrenees Anatolian mix who was adopted three years ago into a home where she has been very happy. Sadly, after three very blissful years with her owner Katie now needs to be re-homed because her owner became seriously ill and had to be placed in a hospice. Even though Katie’s owner has loved and cared for her for the last three years, the illness and move into a hospice means that she is no longer able to take care of Miss Katie and another canine companion.
Katie is a very good girl. She is house-trained and non-destructive. She is used to living with other dogs but would most likely adjust well to being an only child. Katie was originally rescued from Little Rock Animal Services along with her sister, Ashley. Katie has been a wonderful companion to her owner and only needs re-homing because of her owner's health status. Katie's owners were elderly and she was very respectful and sensitive towards them and never knocked them over. Even when she was much younger Katie never acted in a rambunctious way. She has been a faithful and loving companion, and although it’s very sad for her to lose her owner, it’s time for her to move on and give her love and attention to a new family.
Katie is healthy and is all up to date on her vetting. She is all ready for a new forever home and family. Katie is about 80 pounds and is full grown. She has the shorter coat of her Anatolian heritage so does not need the usual grooming required by a Great Pyrenees.

Due to her circumstances, Katie may not be available to meet at the DogsOnly adoption showings (click here for directions) every Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 at Petco in Little Rock, so you should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org before you come to visit to make sure that she will be available, or so that you can make arrangements to visit with her. You can also submit an online adoption application by clicking the orange colored links at the top or bottom of this page.
We always try and answer all emails within 24 hours. All of our young and adult dogs require a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process. This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. Puppies are not available to go on home visits. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times
All DogsOnly foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. None of the DogsOnly fosters have cats in their homes so we can only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats. We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found.
DogsOnly relies solely on donations and is a 501(c)3 Humane Society. Our mission is to rescue dogs that most other groups are not interested in due to their size, breed, age, health or other various reasons, and to provide education resources for dog owners and those with an interest in the wellbeing of dogs. DogsOnly believes that no dog should be left behind.
