Sassy is not in the Closer to Home Animal Advocates rescue program. We are listing her as a courtesy to her caretaker. The following information about Sassy was provided by her caretaker:
Sassy is a 5-year-old German Shepherd/Husky mix with bright blue eyes. She’s 60 pounds, spayed, shots up to date, licensed, very sweet, good with other male dogs but we haven't tried her with female dogs yet. Just got her nose to nose with a kitty who’s not afraid of dogs and she did fine, fetches, shakes, calm, just a nice, nice dog. Housebroken, she loves women. She’ll stick to you like glue, very people oriented. She lived with a woman who had her since a pup but the woman died in March. Sassy was in the house with her owner for ten days when the police finally arrived and she wouldn’t let the police remove the woman so they took the Sassy to the pound.
The things we have discovered about Sassy, so far, are she's not a dog food eater. Seems that she has been on people type foods, meat, veggies. I had someone local call to foster her but she wants to put her in a kennel or crate when she’s at work. Sassy has never been in a crate or a kennel, it makes her nervous we found out earlier this morning and she sort of flips out in either. I don’t know if she’s a digger, I do know, she thinks she’s a human, for sure.
Sassy's prior owner had her trained well. Sassy fetches, she sits right with you. She’s a good good girl, good with cats, kids and so far male dogs, haven’t had her with females just yet.
Sassy will make her next owner VERY happy because she is very loyal and just is a piece of Velcro, just wants to be by someone’s side. I would say when finding her a place it is going to be important to find someone who’s home all the time. Sassy is used to being with a companion 24/7. I think she’ll not do well being in a kennel or away from her “person” all day or night long. She’s housetrained and can be left alone in the house without destroying or chewing or going potty in the house, but she is used to being in the company of her person. She’s way smarter than a dog needs to be. You can actually have a conversation with this girl. She has icy light blue human looking eyes and she looks directly through you when you talk to her. She’s not a barker, she’s quite, clean, content and doesn’t get her nose into things like toilets, trash, cupboards. But if you open the refrigerator, she’s going to have her head in that. Definitely.
She’ll either be the right dog for a bachelor or bachelorette who can take her to work or works at home, or retired person who wants a partner and someone to feel safe with. She’d not do well with someone who’s going to be gone 8 hours a day. I think she’d get depressed immediately.
