found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
Oct 2014 update:
Good with other dogs?
Volunteers have seen her enjoy playing with only two dogs; so it can happen, but a series of play dates with any incumbent would be highly advisable before taking Sarah to a home with another dog. She would not enjoy dog parks much, if at all. But she could adapt to being around another dog; she frequently spends the day in Day Camp, and she doesn’t cause trouble - although it doesn't look as though she's having a great time.
Good with cats? NO
Walks well on a leash? Yes
Any behavioral or anxiety problems?
Is uneven and inconsistent emotionally which has developed over the long period she's lived in the kennel environment. This will no doubt improve when she finds a home and can get the attention, security, love, mental and physical activity she needs.
Health issues – special needs: Seriously overweight, is on a diet. Needs daily walks.
Does dog know basic commands: Come, sit, stay, any hand signals, etc.?
Sarah passed Good Citizen test a few months ago.
What else can you say about Sarah?
Has sweet personality and can be affectionate when she’s feeling good. But can be emotionally inconsistent after being in a kennel so long.
Energy level – 1 is low, 5 is high. 3
Enjoys toys? Not much
Special needs from new family?
Needs to control weight. Family will need to be sensitive to Sarah’s need for physical space – that is, not being crowded, particularly by other dogs or by children. This may improve once she's out of a kennel and knows she is secure in her home with plenty of mental and physical activity, and lots of love.
Sarah was born 12/14/2012.
Sarah is a sweet young lab mix who has successfully reared her young family. She came to rescue with her litter of puppies. They were all fostered at Dr. Fling’s until they were old enough to be adopted. She has also been going to obedience classes with a volunteer on the roof of the East Lake Veterinary Hospital. Sarah shows that wonderful lab behavior of loving people and being happy to be a lap dog, despite not fitting into any lap. She needs a home that will give her all the love and proper care she has not had in her young life.
