After 10 years locked in a cage, Katarina can’t wait to pick out her very own toy!
Every dog deserves a “puppyhood”, but a 10-year-old Yorkie named Katarina never got the chance until now. The tiny dog spent her whole life living in a cramped cage at a puppy mill. But that life changed for her when she was rescued by the Hub City Humane Society, in Mississippi, and placed with foster caregiver, Ashleigh Reader.
Katarina’s personality instantly began to shine with her newfound freedom and Reader immediately noticed that the Yorkie was fascinated with toys and decided a trip to Petsmart was in order.
Reader filmed what happened when Katrina was brought inside the store and let loose to pick her own toy. “This is what happens when you take a dog to Petsmart who has lived her entire life in a puppy mill! She was just a little excited!” said Reader.
Katarina ended up picking two toys, one being a squeaky corn dog that Reader says Katrina gave loving licks on the way home.
“Her foster parents have committed their home and hearts to this girl for 3 months as we get her dental and spay surgeries done and treat her heartworm disease,” the humane society says on Facebook of Katarina’s stay with Reader.
It looks like Katarina is making up for lost time when it comes to play time. I’m sure she’ll make her future family very happy!
