My name is Sandy, and my foster mum says that I'm the most sweet, gentle lady with the most beautiful golden hazel eyes that you will ever meet.
I had a very rough beginning before coming to Cabarrus Pets Society. I was tied in a shed without food and water, and lost 8 of my 10 puppies before I was rescued by the amazing people at CPS. I tested heartworm positive, but I've been treated for that. I've had some dental work done and now I have a beautiful smile worthy of any dental commercial. I am now in excellent health.
My foster mum suspects I was abused. I get frightened by loud noises and will find a quiet place to hide. Fast arm movements scare me and I will crouch away.
Since living with my foster mum, I've have gained a lot of confidence. I come to her now without fear, and she says that my tail never stops wagging. I can't help it, I'm such a happy lady now.
I love to chew on my toys and pile them around me. I love exploring the big yard. I also love car rides and I walk very well on a leash. I sit for my meals and treats. And I really enjoy peanut butter.
Because I'm such a gentle soul, I prefer a home that is quiet and calm. I'm friendly with everyone, but shy at first when meeting new people. I do best with older children that will be gentle with me. I'm a loyal lady and will follow you everywhere. I'm also very quiet. The only time you'll probably hear me bark is when I'm dreaming. (I'm still trying to catch that pesky squirrel.)
