Sugar's Story...
Sugar was found walking down a busy street with her friend, Ace. She had a rope tied around her neck - evidence that the place she left was not a very nice place to be. A dog lover, who happens to be a Tassie's Hope volunteer, spotted the pair, pulled over and spent several minutes coaxing them into her car. Sugar and Ace were taken to safety and made a visit to the vet for "the works": spay/neuter, worming, shots and heartworm test. Like many of the dogs we rescue, Sugar tested heartworm-positive. She is currently undergoing treatment and will be as good as new in early May. Sugar adores people. It's evident that she has experienced her fair share of neglect, so she is making up for lost time. Sugar is ok around calm dogs, but would probably be perfectly happy as an only pet, where she can have her person's attention all to herself. As for cats, Sugar likes to chase them. This girl is the ultimate couch potato. She loves nothing more than hanging out indoors, curling up on the couch and getting petted. Sugar, however, does enjoy the occasional walk and she likes to ride in the car. She likes to look out the window and check everything out - probably very thankful to no longer be wandering the streets. This little girl just wants the safety and security of a permanent home, where she can receive lots of TLC. Sugar is a dog who will definately want to sleep with her person, snuggle on the couch with her person and be with someone who can spend a lot of time with her. She would do best in a calm household where someone is at home much of the time. Our $150 adoption fee helps cover the cost of the medical care Sugar has received. If you are looking for a new best friend, you couldn't ask for a better one that Sugar. If you are interested in giving Sugar a loving, permanent home, please complete our online application today:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sugar, a Carrollton Basenji dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basenji for sale in Carrollton, or seeking a Basenji dog from a breeder in Carrollton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Carrollton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Carrollton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Basenji breeders who help with Basenji rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Carrollton paves the way for another one to be saved.
