Spayed or Neutered,
No sad days with Sadie!
Hey guys! My name is Sadie, and since I have a bunch of namesakes here, let’s call me Sadie the Boxer, or Sadie 3. I am a 3 year old, spayed female Boxer mix and weigh about 66 pounds. I had a family but unfortunately it didn’t work out, so here I am at my foster home, waiting to find my new family! I am potty trained, crate trained, and do well left home alone free roaming. I walk well on leash when there aren’t distractions around. When I see other dogs on leash I get excited and will whine/pull towards them (they say it’s called “leash reactivity”). I am working hard on desensitization and improving every day. I am polite with my doggie foster sibling on walks – it’s just those new dogs that distract me!
I am a sweet and goofy gal, with medium sort of energy. I am a lil shadow of my family and follow them around, waiting for affection. I am a true lap dog, regardless of my size! If you’ll let me, I love to fall asleep tucked against you or with my chin on your leg. I am very intuitive and in touch with my family’s emotions. My boxer energy comes out with a few bouts of energetic play a day, but I mostly enjoy lounging about. I do well with all sorts of human guests coming over; I love a good party! I can be called dog-selective, but I am doing great living in my foster home with a canine companion. I prefer calm dogs and proper introductions. I have minor resource guarding towards other dogs, in the form of growling if they approach me while I’m eating my meals. What can I say, I like my food! If I go home with a doggie sibling, an owner who has experience with resource guarding, or is willing to learn how to manage this behavior, would be ideal. I don’t have experience with cats or kids yet.
My skin allergies are being managed with daily Apolquel pills (~$81.00 for a months supply. Price will vary depending on where purchased and market value). I am currently eating Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets HA Hydrolyzed Vegetarian Canine Dry Formula as well.
I would do well in either an active or chill home, as long as I have people to cuddle with! I’m already seeing improvements on my reactivity in my foster home, so keeping that training up would be great. While I do love a good sunbathing session, I don’t necessarily need a yard, as long as I get a couple walks to get out and sniff I am happy. I’d love a home with people who will continue to help me improve on leash and be my best self! My adoption fee is $250 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
