My story

Greta is looking for a home with a yard. She would do best with older, or no kids and although is fostering with other dogs, would be happiest as a single dog. She has not been tested with cats.

Greta is a sweet, 6-year-old, 40 pound shepherd/cattle dog mix, with a beautiful red coat. She came to the rescue malnourished, sick and very pregnant. She was a great momma and was protective of her pups, which isn’t surprising because it is likely she had puppies, at least once a year, for the majority of her life. Because being in her foster home seemed like an unfamiliar situation to her, it’s likely she spent her life outdoors. It takes her time to warm up to new people. When she does, she is cuddly and eager to please. She loves attention and scratches from her human. She would prefer a calm, quiet home with older children and can be dog-selective, so no other dogs is preferred. She would love a family with a yard, so she can bask in the sun and take casual strolls on her potty breaks. She is house trained (with reminders). She is an alert barker, but not overly so, when she hears a strange noise, so an apartment would not be a good fit for her.

Please email right away if you would like to learn more about this dog......and visit our website www.siarescuers.org to learn more about our rescue group. Adoption fees range from $350-$450 for dogs. THE DOGS SHOWN ON THE SITE ARE IN FOSTERCARE - WE DO NOT HAVE A SHELTER TO VISIT. EMAIL is the best way to reach us.We are a volunteer run, very small organization - so please be patient when waiting for a response, but feel free to check back in if you haven't heard from us in a day or so - thank you so much for considering a rescued pooch!

More about this rescue

PLEASE ALSO VISIT www.siarescuers.org for more animals, info and our adoption or foster questionnaires! Our Mission Statement... Sacramento Independent Animal Rescuers is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Our purpose is to aid stray, abandoned, and neglected animals. In addition to animals rescued and adopted by our organization, SIAR is also dedicated to help other independent animal rescuers find their foster animals the loving homes they deserve. To date, thousands of dogs and cats have been rescued and placed into wonderful homes in the past few years. In order to provide these services, we work with the community shelters, rescue organizations, and individuals who have animals with special needs and place these animals in permanent homes after they reach a stage of wellness. Our mission is to provide loving, permanent homes for animals that have been abused, abandoned, or lost, which otherwise would not be with us today. Many of our rescued animals, especially those that were rescued from the shelters initially had kennel cough, pneumonia, or giardia with the extreme cases having the parvo or distemper viruses. In addition, a high percentage of animals are malnourished and require special dietary demands. We rely on tax deductible cash donations as well as food and other pet supplies that will allow us to continue to save lives! **** WE ARE IN GREAT NEED OF DONATIONS AS MANY OF THE ANIMALS WE RESCUE HAVE COSTLY MEDICAL PROBLEMS AND ARE CONSIDERED NON ADOPTABLE AT THE SHELTERS - WE HOPE TO GIVE THEM A SECOND CHANCE AT A LONG AND HAPPY LIFE**** All of our companion pets, have been neutered or spayed, given all current vaccinations, heartworm tested and microchipped. This also provides the community with healthier animals and aids in the reduction of the outspread of illness and future homeless offspring. The adoption fee for animals being adopted by SIAR can range from $75-$100 (for kitties) and $150-$350 (for dogs) depending on the animal and associated costs. The adoption fee helps up recooperate the thousands of dollars spent yearly on rehabilitation and allows us to continue to rescue animals in need. Please be sure to click on the animal you are interested in. The corresponding biography will let you know which rescuer you need to contact to learn more about that wonderful pet. Disclaimer: Due to the limited time spent with the rescued animals, Sacramento Independent Animals Rescuers is not responsible for the health, behavior or temperament of the animals listed or adopted by this group.
