Facts about SAKURA

  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Adult

SAKURA (aka SAKE) - Retriever mix, female, 5 years old, 52 lbs. Sake is a sweet little girl with a lot of love. Sake came to us with some pretty severe allergies and ear infections which caused a LOT of hair loss and discomfort. Since we've been treating her she's grown back so much of her hair and she keeps growing back more on a daily basis. She is in the process of getting allergy testing, but for now is doing great on her allergy medication. Sake gets along well with the cat in the house, occasionally gets spunky and wants to play, but the cat will have none of that. She gets along well with the resident female dog in her foster home and knows sit, shake, down, and stay, and listens very well if you ask her to get down from the bed or the couch. She'll do anything for a treat, which makes it very easy to train her or give her meds. Sake will need the occasional medicated bath which she tolerates pretty well. And good treats like hot dog chunks make her like it more and more each time! Now that she's feeling better, Sake is really coming into her own. She's housebroken, does well on leash, she's the perfect medium size, and she'd love to meet YOU!
** If you are interested in adopting this dog, you must first complete an adoption application at http://peppertree.org/adoptapp.php. Or visit our site (http://peppertree.org/adoptlist.php) and learn about other Peppertree dogs. *Note: visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
