Hello!! My name is Sterling. I'm 3-4 years old and weigh approximately 40 pounds. I enjoy having someone play with me and when playtime is over, I'll smother you with kisses and I absolutely LOVE to cuddle! I am a very good boy and love every human I meet. I'm a little selective about the canine company I keep, so perhaps a home where I am the only dog member would be best. I do tend to play a little rough so it's probably best if any children in the home are old enough to handle my rough play. I came to Satchel's with an old leg injury, but the lovely people at the vet fixed me up and gave me lots of love, and treats too! My injury has left me walking kind of funny on my left rear leg, but it doesn't get me down! I still love to run and play. I would love to meet you, maybe share a kiss or two! So what do you say?!

If you would like an appointment to meet Sterling, please email or call 941-924-5070.

About Satchel's Last Resort

About Our Shelter...

At Satchel's Last Resort, we provide lifelong shelter to dogs deemed unadoptable, nurture and train borderline dogs, and offer temporary shelter to adoptable dogs whose owners can no longer care for them. We believe all dogs are created equal and deserve to live the life of a beloved pet.

Each dog that comes to Satchel’s has its own unique and personal history. We get to know each dog individually – his favorite toy, his favorite game, his favorite foods. The residents (dogs forever with Satchel's) and guests (adoptable dogs at Satchel's for a temporary stay) live in an airy shelter with spacious kennels, go for three romps or walks per day, and even take the occasional car ride to let their fur flap in the wind. Most important to us -- we keep our dogs safe from other residents and from humans who may want to harm them.

Trainers work with the dogs a few times a week to teach them that they can trust humans and other animals. We actively seek forever homes tailored to the needs of our adoptable dogs so that they can live the rest of their lives among a family of their own.

At Satchel’s Last Resort, we believe that by harnessing the unconditional love that the dogs in our sanctuary put forth everyday, the world becomes a brighter place for animals and people. Each and everyday we try to give a little of their love back – back to the dogs and back to our community.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, up to to date on their vaccinations and micro chipped. The adoption fee is $95 for dogs and $125 for puppies. We ask that all members of the household come and meet the dog(s) you are interested in. Then if you are interested in adopting, you will fill out an *application. Once approved we will make arrangement for the adoption.
