  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Meet Sage. This pretty girl was a stray whose owner never came forward. Her finders kept her as long as they could, but knew it was best to find a permanent solution for her elsewhere. This is where we entered the picture. Sage is 4-year-old mixed breed girl who weighs about 50 pounds. Some people have guessed she was boxer. Some have had said shepherd. Others have said lab. We don't have a clue. Sage is a pretty, calm, sweet girl who really would love for someone to take her in and snuggle a bit while she gets her treatment.

Sage has been around other dogs in the finder's home and did very well with everyone she met. She was also found with another male dog who is her good buddy, but doesn't have to be rehomed with him. We know that Sage has been around kids of all ages and has been very tolerant. We do not know how she is with cats.

Sage is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. She is also solidly housebroken and crate trained although we suspect that she would also be fine without a crate. Sage knows several commands and walks well on leash. She is also a nice little companion in the car.

Unfortunately, Sage is heartworm positive which means she needs treatment which consists of an overnight vet stay and then a month of rest being a couch potato. She will be as good as new in no time! If you are interested in meeting Sage and helping her complete her heartworm treatment, we are accepting foster and adoption applications on our website Her adoption fee is $150. Her vet treatment will all be covered in this fee.

About PawSwaP of Greater Lafayette

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a rescue/ rhoming service that provides education and assistance for owners in our community to keep pets in their home. When that is not an option or we come across animals in need, we will take them into our foster-based program, work with them, seek all necessary vetting, and find them the perfect home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do various adoption events in the community. If you would like to meet one of our available adoptables, please email us!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is to complete the adoption application on our website. Once we have reviewed the applications, we will contact the potential adopters to arrange a meet and greet. This can take several days depending on the popularity of the animal.
