Sassy T. Summary:
Sex Age Wt Shots Level Potty Trained
F 10 yrs 87 lbs Current 2 yes
Good with Adults, dogs, cats and rides well in a car
Sassy deserves a family that will love her now and into her golden years.
Sassy rides nicely in a car... either in or out of a crate. Also, she walks nicely on a leash and seems to know some basic training commands such as "sit" and possibly "down".
Her current 87lb weight however suggests that she likely needs some additional exercise and/or dieting to get her weight down closer to the 75lb range for her frame.
Sassy has a sweet temperament and enjoys having attention from her people such as getting her neck scratched and ears rubbed. Below is a video of her enjoying a belly rub. When we tested her with our feral test-cat she showed little interest so she will likely be able to share a home with a cooperative cat.
Sassy was taken to an Ophthalmologist and diagnosed with Pannus, an autoimmune disease of the eye. It is a treatable condition that affects the cornea but not the functioning eye itself (even partially reversible). She is being treated now and has made great progress, not only in stopping the progression, but reversing the damage. She will need drops in her eyes for the rest of her life to keep the condition under control.
Since Sassy has been accepted into the GSRNC Thulani Program she will receive lots of love and pampering and will also receive any medical care necessary for her well being.
Sassy is ready and The Thulani Program is looking to match her with a forever adoptive home that will care for her for the rest of her life. Sassy will come with a supply of food, a cushy pad if wanted, and other goodies such as toys. AND... her medical expenses are covered by The Thulani Program for the rest of her life.
