Our Valentines Day present to Sage was her freedom ride out of the shelter. She arrived in rescue a broken soul, almost like she had given up on life along with very poor skin condition, scabs all over her body. Since in rescue her foster reports: Sage is coming out of her shell since arriving here from South Carolina. Her body is evidence of the hard life she has lived, but despite it all she is a sweet and gentle dog. Sage is so excited to see me when I get home from work. The once shy girl greets me with a wagging tail and kisses. She is enjoying having a safe and warm home for the first time in her life most likely. She is also enjoying eating and gaining weight each day. We are currently working on potty training. She seems to be doing well and learned the routines quickly. We are also working on basic commands such a sit, down, drop-it, and off. Sage is good with other dogs, but would do great as an only dog in a household too. Her foster brother has a bit too much energy for her, but he has taught her how to play with some toys. Sage is so deserving of a fur-ever home and she will quickly make you fall in love with her…I know I have. Sage has shown to be good with older kids who respect dogs, she's a little nervous around small children. We hope that you will open your heart to this lovely lady, who is so in love with life. She really wants to please you. Sage has shown more of her puppy playfulness and manners so she is not always going to be that couch potato.

About Promises Animal Rescue, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

P.A.R. is a volunteer dog rescue organization dedicated to rescuing German Shepherds and Labrador Retrievers in shelters where they are at high risk of euthanasia, dogs given up by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those in danger of abuse or neglect.

We are also dedicated to teaching awareness, education, help and mentoring the public and veterinarians the skills on caring for special need dogs with Mega Esophagus.

We place dogs in loving, responsible, committed permanent homes, following a comprehensive adoption process and will continue to be a helpful resource after you have welcomed your new pet into your life...

We are determined to keep administrative expenses extremely low so that virtually every dollar taken in goes directly to the care of the dogs. Our group remains interested in and committed to the welfare of the dog beyond the adoption process, with regards to care, education, resources, training. Fundamentally all donations will be spent directly on the care of the animals.
