Shefaro Katyiana Tiara, JC
This is how it all started. Katy is one of these eleven babies born at Odessa, Texas, January 13, 2000 pictured at fifteen days of age sired by Rico. The litter is cobred by Shefaro and Emily Patterson who owns Rico and Chita.
Katy is growing up.
Katy is an AKC coursing champion and carries the Junior Courser suffix.

Katy won two AKC championship points Denton Kennel Club show, May 12, 2002, Judge John Simm. The major broke!
Katy returned to Shefaro because her former owner, a tongue pierced, tattooed dominating and overbearing owner felt that Katy needed to be thrown onto the ground and otherwise beaten into submission, not to mention abuse with a shock collar. According to her former owner, Katy finally bit her. Small wonder when Katy was choked by the collar into submission and feared for her life. Katy is back home at Shefaro where she is treated with the respect and dignity befitting her breed. She is a lovely and sweet tempered Shefaro Borzoi who hasn't so much as curled a lip since she's been here. Being treated with kindness and dignity allows her to be kind and dignified. I am so happy to have Katy home. The following are pictures of "Killer" Katy at Shefaro with her friends and family. She treats family and strangers alike - not a mean bone in her body.

Katy is visiting with friend Bonnie who came here from New Mexico to pick up her puppy girl Tess on October 28, 2002. Katy is as sweet as sugar to family and strangers alike.
Katy is happy at Shefaro where she lives free with other Borzoi and with the respect and dignity that she deserves.

November 29, 2002 Katy thinks it's rather undignified to be kissed by Pegaso, but he doesn't care. Little Lazlo just passes by.
Everyone's kissing Katy. Hermana is smooching while Katy's nephew, Gorky, is sniffing! Katy's just one of the Shefaro kids. She is as sweet with the young Borzoi as she is with the adult Borzoi and visitors, two and four legged. Katy's home to stay.

December 1, 2002, Nic and Shannon Neumann came to visit from New York to meet the Shefaro family and to purchase a puppy girl. After they met Katy, they were determined to have one like her and chose a Gloriosa blonde and white puppy girl. They asked if I thought their puppy would girl would grow up as lovely and sweet as Katy. I told them if she's raised with love and respect, she should be no different that any other sweet and lovely Shefaro Borzoi. Katy is to Shannon's right, sister Vida is behind Katy. Rolando is in the foreground.
Katy loves Nic and vice versa. Shannon pets Lazlo.
Katy loves her Shefaro family, especially the boys. Here she is giving sugar to Casanova at the stock tank December 21, 2002.

Katy was bred to Shefaro's Cesario and had a beautiful litter of eight (5 boys, 3 birls) on September 30, 2005. She's an excellent mother. Click on the picture to see the litter and watch them grow. I have her son and daughter, Mateo and Martina at Shefaro.

Katy went naked after having her pups, but she really enjoys life at Shefaro.
December 23, 2005. Her coat will grow back! Of course, she doesn't need much when the sun is shining and it's 71 degrees in San Antonio, Texas on December 23, 2005.
