Divorce landed poor Sabena, a loving housepet who raised a 7 yr. boy and lived with large and small dogs and a cat, into the high kill shelter in NM. Following the split, Dad took Sabena but he was working long hours and never home. So Sabena started jumping the fence to mosey around, looking for attention and to have something to do. She didn't run away, but ran around. To stop the jumping, Sabena was then chained but she started barking due to boredom. So, off to the local shelter next, though the owner told us he really hated to do it. Today, Sabena is in a Colorado Springs foster home where she lives comfortably with another dog and a cat. Her house manners are lovely and she has a lot of energy. Toys don't really seem to interest her much so far. She loves cuddling on the couch and she loves going for car rides and just lays down in the back with a giant smile on her face. Sabena is a very sweet girl and is just looking for someone to love. She does jump up for petting but very politely. While Sabena can be a little hesitant with new people, she relaxes in a short while. She's just waiting to spend her senior years with someone who loves her, although she sure could be a hiking or running partner in her current condition. She just does not act "older".
