Facts about Sawyer *in Foster*

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 381216
Sassy Sawyer has been in foster with a family with 3 dogs since January of this year.

Since arriving he's been changing almost daily, calming down, revealing new depths to his intelligence and new facets of his personality. This playful, exuberant little dog has brought so much love and laughter into the lives of his foster family.

Here is the latest update from the foster parents:
We always knew Sawyer was smart and very affectionate with humans, and that he really likes other dogs. Over time we learned what an excellent communicator he is and that he not only likes dogs, he LOVES them!

He loves sniffy walks and will follow his nose if you let him, and he's happy to trot along endlessly at your side, relaxed and soft-leashed.

Sawyer is a young adult, healthy and fit, with loads of energy and a busy brain. He needs a home with active people who can provide daily physical exercise, and mental challenges through positive-reinforcement based learning. Sawyer is intelligent and focused, and so in-tune with his human there isn't a sport, trick, or activity he couldn't learn to do.

He loves to interact with people and will do just about anything for a tasty treat! He's learned how to swim, fetch in water and run calmly alongside a bike. Running and playing are among his all-time favorite activities!

Sawyer needs daily stimulation to remain happy and well-mannered like most higher energy dogs, but he also adores quiet time. He loves to cuddle and give kisses, and he's learned how to politely ask for affection. His favorite thing in the world might just be soft, tickly belly rubs.

Sawyer can be excitable and while he's learned how to behave appropriately in new or stressful situations, he still needs a quiet home environment with experienced guardians and calm, confident handling. He adores his doggie friends and would love another playful, social dog to make his forever home complete. Cats and young children are not a match.

If you are interested in adopting please submit an application to vancouver@spca.bc.ca with a note that it is for Sawyer.

Through its 36 branches located around BC and its provincial office in Vancouver, the BC SPCA provides a wide range of services for more than 53,000 homeless, abused, and abandoned animals around the province. The BC SPCA was created under the auspices of the provincial Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, and is the only animal welfare organization in BC which has the authority to enforce laws relating to animal cruelty and to prepare cases for Crown Counsel for the prosecution of individuals who inflict suffering on animals.

Our Charter:

The BC SPCA Charter is the foundation that guides the work we do:

Whereas:

The world is inhabited by many species sharing a common ecosystem of air, earth, and water. We recognize and value our interconnectedness with all animals.

Therefore:

The BC Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is dedicated to protecting and enhancing the quality of life for the animals of the world we share.

We pledge our energies to inspire and mobilize society to create a world in which all animals, who depend on humans for their well-being, experience, as a minimum, five essential freedoms:

1. Freedom from hunger and thirst

2. Freedom from pain, injury, and disease

3. Freedom from distress

4. Freedom from discomfort

5. Freedom to express behaviours that promote well-being.
