This beautiful Red & White with Sable ears was surrendered after she started growling at a new baby that arrived in the home. Sadie pulls on the leash and needs more leash work. She does well with other dogs her size and only growls if she thinks they will get her food before she does. She has not been around large dogs but did learn how much fun it is to terrorize and chase cats. She can be a loud barker when excited and seems to know better because she looks at the foster with “those eyes” while she still tries to bark. Sadie is an easy dog to correct and a joy to be around.
This little miss will occasionally catch a sight or a sound on TV and will watch the screen happily for a few minutes with a little bark now and then. She is a loving dog but he goes crazy when she sees a rabbit or squirrel teasing her and her foster siblings. She may also remind you what you recently placed in the trash can. She is not a high energy dog but loves to play, walk and be included in family activities. She rides in the car inside a crate but gets nervous with some whining. She can be independent but loves a nice lap cuddle.
Sadie might do well living in an apartment as long as she gets attention, plenty of leash walking and outdoor socialization, however she would be happier running around in her own fenced yard. Another dog her size would be a comfort to her. Because of her history with the new baby, we recommend a mature family for this loyal dog who doesn’t ask much in return.
If not already, Sadie C will be micro-chipped, spayed (if age appropriate), and up-to-date on her shots prior to adoption. If you would like to meet Sadie C to see if she is a good fit for your home, please fill out an Adoption Application online.
