September 11, 2012: Sweet Sae reminds me of someone’s grandfather! He shuffles around, trying his best to stay out of the way, and doing what he thinks will make everyone happy! He’s a wonderfully sweet and gentle fellow who only wants to please.
Sae came from a crowded and frightening shelter in New York City, where he was found as a stray. He’s an adorable senior Yorkshire Terrier mix, about 15 pounds, with one ear up and one ear down! Sae is completely blind from cataracts and partially deaf. He has no hearing out of his left ear and only slight hearing out of his right, but does hear louder noises. Sae is completely housebroken and has never had an accident in the house, not even when he first arrived. He takes treats gently from your hand, and loves to sleep by the front screen door to feel the breeze and smell the smells from outside. He sleeps much of the day and sleeps completely through the night. He completely ignores the other dogs and cats.
Sae has allergies and does a lot of licking, which sometimes create sores. He’s currently on Prednisone and gets weekly baths with a medicated shampoo. He stands quietly for his baths with no fuss. When his allergies are particularly bad, he wears an ecollar (a cone). He also wears a Tshirt as needed. Anxiety may play a role in his licking, as well.
Sae’s history is unknown, and we can only imagine what he may have gone through. Sae is quite timid, and walks very slowly and carefully. It took him about a week to venture out of the expen, and another week to leave the living room. He now knows the downstairs rooms and can find his way back to the deck from outside, but does occasionally need guidance.
When he first came here, Sae did not like being picked up and held, and would struggle to be put down. After a few weeks, he’s learning to enjoy being held, but he is not yet a lap dog. His favorite time to be held is a few hours after dinner, where he will just melt into your arms for some loving!
Sae is a very quiet and careful fellow. I’ve only heard him bark three times. He will need a patient and understanding owner who will work with him as he learns to trust and bond. Sae prefers a quiet house with no children and ideally, would be adopted within five or six hours of central upstate New York to avoid the stress of a longer transport. I believe a longer transport would be very difficult for him.
Sae has a lot of love to give and he has waited very patiently for his own forever home! This gentle boy, who only wants to do the right thing, has a lot of love to share! Please fill out an adoption application if you are interested in sharing your life with Sae!
