SASHA is an approximately 8 pound, one and one half year old Cairn Terrier breed blend female. She was originally saved from a local County shelter where she had been surrendered. SASHA lived her entire existence in her own waste confined to a small wire cage. She had minimal human interaction and her personality is much like that of a puppy mill dog, although SASHA was not used for breeding purposes. Understandably, SASHA is very fearful of loud & sudden noise, confinement, and lacks self confidence.
Despite her horrendous start in life, SASHA has made tremendous progress in the past months. She a sweet, sweet girl who loves to snuggle, be loved by her people and be in the company of other dogs. She lives to wrestle and chase and play with canine companions. She also loves to play with toys and can oftentimes be found throwing little toys, kongs and balls up in the air to catch. Above all, SASHA loves to play fetch with her small tennis balls. She appears most contented chasing balls, rolling in the grass, and enjoying freedom!
SASHA is potty trained on a consistent schedule, but does not always signal to go out. She also knows how to use a doggy door.
Sasha walks well on a leash, but is very afraid of noises in her surroundings.
Given the circumstances of her life, we are looking for a FURever home that will meet SASHA'S needs and keep her safe. We want her to continue to thrive and blossom into the very BEST VERSION of herself!
SASHA MUST go to a PATIENT, kind, LOVING home with a securely fenced yard. A home that has experience with shy/fearful or puppy-mill dogs would be a plus.She needs another confident/dominant and active/playful dog(s) in the home. SASHA COMPLETELY relies on behavior cues from her canine companions and MUST go to a home with other DOGS!
SASHA is a PRECIOUS little girl who is so, so DESERVING of a wonderful life and FURever home!
Her fosters will be available to aid with questions and her transition into a new home.
