I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with cats.
Sage is looking for a very special home. She was picked up as a stray when she was about 6 months old. Her early life experiences left her fearful of just about everything. She's come a long way with her foster family over the last year, but she is still shy and nervous at meeting new people/dogs, going to new places, or handling new situations. The flip side is that once you've earned her trust, she is a very sweet, snuggly, delightful companion. She has stunning light green eyes and a gorgeous short gray coat, and weighs about 45 pounds. She's house-trained and crate-trained and loves toys (especially chew toys) and playing in water. She uses a double doggie door with ease. Her ideal home would have a secure fence (6-foot privacy fence or invisible fence, please) and trees with squirrels! She gets along well with her foster brothers and sisters and might prefer to have a play-buddy (male?) about her size. (Because of her fear of new people and noises, we're not sure how she'd do in a home with small children.) Her current foster home is in the Marion/Alachua County area. Please call Ms. Jody at 352-316-5155 (or email at HeflinJ@bellsouth.net) to hear more of her story or to schedule a play date with Sage!! Thanks! P.S. There's a second video of her playing at http://youtu.be/KJfCXQPtBcA

Rescue Group Info...
Second Chance Rescue is headquartered in Bunnell, Florida. The Western Region covers a rural area in the Gainesville/Ocala area with a network of volunteers and foster homes. We rescue from Levy County Animal Services.
(Most of our foster homes do not have cats or small children - so we don't always know whether a dog is "good with children" or "good with cats" but we're happy to discuss what we know about each dog's personality!)
Most of our adoptions are done following a telephone conversation, application and play date/home visit. We do limited adoption events at Tractor Supply in Jonesville (Newberry Road, west of Gainesville). If you are interested in a particular dog, give us a call today!
Each adoption has an application process, home visit, contract, and adoption donation.
