As a young pup, while asleep, a child jumped on Sara and startled/hurt her. She reacted by nipping the child. Sara was then confined to a crate as she was frightened of the child and would growl when the child was near. She was at risk of euthanized and was surrendered to the rescue. In her foster home, she has an older foster brother who she loves to rough house, chase and play with. She does resource guard and that is something her foster family is working on helping her with. She also does not like to be held or hugged and her foster family is regularly reinforcing positive touch. She is nervous of strangers and will growl, but warms up quickly. She was not socialized as a young pup and is learning leash manners, to play cooperatively, how to 'slow' down with everything, and to be gentle. She would be best in a home with no children under 10 years. She will require a patient family, that will take the time to train her.
Sara will come up to date on her vaccinations, micro chipped and she will be spayed.
Adoption fee $350.00
