Hi, I’m Sasha, a sweet little Cocker who was surrendered to GCCSR recently due to some unfortunate events that happened in my owner’s life. I first moved to live with my owner’s mom and her three bulldogs, but they didn’t like me much, tried to attack me all the time, and I was in danger of being hurt by them… so that’s how I ended up here. My estimated date of birth is October 2005. I’ve been to GCCSR’s primary vet, will see a specialist soon, and they will determine the best course of action with respect to my mammary tumors, need of spay surgery, and back issues. GCCSR will need to raise funds in order to help get me in good health before I can be blessed with my forever home.
There are several dogs in my foster home of various sizes and ages and we’ve been getting along fine right now, unless they approach my toys or get too close in my space. I’ll growl a little to tell them that those are my favorite toys. I have a cute, little trick – I bring all the toys that I like over to my pillow. Doesn’t that show those other dogs that those are mine? I may growl when they get too friendly with me because my back hurts, and I am just protecting myself. I may show my teeth, but that’s it. I really don’t care to fight or anything like that. I’m going to be a great companion someday for a special owner that wouldn’t mind giving me some special attention. I enjoy getting loved on for sure.
I haven’t met any children yet, yet so we are not sure if I would be okay around them. Right now, I’m adjusting to my foster home and trying to process all that has happened to me. I have been around cats, and they don’t bother me at all… but there are some young, big dogs in my current foster home, and everyone seems to think I’d be happier with smaller, more laid back dogs.
The good news is that I’m housebroken (once I learn my new routine) and heartworm negative. While GCCSR will be raising funds to treat my medical issues, in the meantime, I can go to a quiet, stable foster-to-adopt home. I just need someone willing to help me through my issues and take me to my vet appointments. The folks at GCCSR believe I deserve a chance to live out my senior years with love and good health…. can you please help me?
