Katie came to the Columbia County Animal Shelter in Georgia as a stray just before Christmas. She was matted, dirty and in sad shape. Her eyes were so dry that her matted hair stuck to her eyes. Being small, friendly and probably a purebred Shih Tzu, Katie should have been quickly adopted. Although the shelter staff tried to clean her up, all the Christmas adopters passed Katie up for puppies or better-looking dogs. It didn't help that Katie is an older dog, estimated to be between seven and ten years old.
