Sarah weighs around 55 pounds and could stand to lose a few more. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped, as well as current on heartworm prevention. Sarah is crate trained, reliably housebroken and typically a very quiet dog.
Sarah gets along very well with other dogs of all sizes. I haven't tested her with cats, but I suspect she would be fine after a proper introduction. She is a gentle, easygoing dog who has adapted very well to her changed environment, although she is a bit shy at the get go. She will bark in the yard at noises outside of the fence, but is otherwise quiet. She plays with other dogs and would do very well in a home with children of any age. Sarah is sweet and docile -- just an all around great dog.
Physically fenced yard required (no "invisible" fences), no exception. Application, home visit and donation to local rescue group will be required. Courtesy posts appreciated.
