Look at this adorable little nugget… Meet Sake, a very sweet little Chi who needs to find a new home. She’s already lost one home in the past 2 years, when her former owner passed away in 2014 and her current family took her in. Now her parents are going through a divorce, and her mom is working very long hours with a bad commute, so Sake is alone 10+ hours a day. Her mom adores her, but knows she deserves a better home to live out her golden years.
Sake is a very social and friendly Chi who loves kids, and has always lived with both cats and dogs. She loves to play and wrestle with other dogs, and really enjoys hanging out and watching TV on your lap. She will bark to let you know if someone comes to the door, but is not a loud or vocal pup, and will do well in a condo.
She has a mellow energy level and is described as a very chill companion, and at only 10.5 pounds she’s the ultimate lap dog. Sake is housetrained, crate trained, and is great on leash, and has learned to stay right next to you on a walk. Her current mom describes her as “the perfect companion, with such a loving sweet nature, and very well trained. She is a wonderful dog who will make any owner happy.”
We hope to find this sweet senior an owner who has time to devote to her, and give her the kind of attention she deserves.

You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes.
