Sassy is doing well in her foster home. She’s a lazy girl! She will spend an entire day laying on the couch or just hanging out with her owner. She loves affection and while she loves practically every adult, she LOVES men. Sassy gets along well with most small dogs, we don’t know how she is with cats and needs an adult only home. She really is super sweet BUT there is a tendency to dominate (little dog syndrome) she needs someone that is firm yet loving and willing to work with her on obedience. She also will needs a fenced yard. She loves her walks on a leash with her foster Mom.
She is working on housebreaking. We assume she was housebroken at one time but she does still have accidents in the house, on occasion.
While Sassy is a great companion dog and wants to be with you all the time, she can be strong willed when she isn’t getting her way. We feel she will do best in a home with an experienced dog owner. She LOVES car rides and thinks every time you leave she is going to get to go with you so she rushes to your side.
She recently had a dental and a full work-up at the vet. She is ready to be adopted.
All dogs will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, heart worm tested, wormed, micro-chipped and will have had 1 month of heart worm preventative, and 1 month of flea preventative before adoption.
Adoption fee: $250
