Hi my name is Sadie aka Sally, and I like to find a comfy spot, whether it is a bed or a couch. Don't be surprised that I have a light snore and that I bark more in my sleep than I ever do awake, says my foster Mom. It took me a little while to get used to my new Foster home but I began to warm up after about a week. I weigh 83 lbs. and need to lose a little bit of weight and be more active as I love to be a full-time couch potato.
I would love to go to a quiet home, that has a secure fenced in area in which I can also explore the great outdoors. I love to go on a nice outing with my people, for instance: when my foster mom takes me to the dog park I tend to run all around finding all the smells and meeting up with the other sociable dogs at the park. I don't do too bad on leash, but I do pull a little bit when I'm excited. A brisk walk/ jogging is about the pace I am loose leashed at and not pulling.
Because of this nose of mine I tend to sometimes not listen to someone calling my name as I'm on the hunt, that comes from being a hound dog mix. I know a few basic commands, but I still need to work on a few, I know sit, shake, leave it, outside, inside, and come, but only if I am listening and not tracking. A few commands my foster Mom is trying to work with me on are down and off (like lay down and off the furniture aka her bed).
When I'm home I love to have my belly rubbed, a lot of scratches, pets, and lots of cuddling before I go find my comfy spot. I am super sweet and when I get excited, I will wag my tail and do a half circle looking back at you. I don't really play too much with toys.
It takes me a little while to eat as I have some teeth missing from dental work so softer treats are probably better for me. I am curious around the dinner table, but I don't beg for food. I am housetrained, as my foster Mom leaves me and my senior foster brother unkenneled to go to work. I mostly just sleep until she gets back.
*The pet you are viewing is a rescued pet which is most often from an animal control facility and does not come with a pedigree. The breed(s) listed are our best guess and are in no way guaranteed. Sometimes the pets appear to be a particular breed(s) in the pictures we receive from our rescue partners and when they arrive we are surprised to see an entirely different breed(s) in person! If you choose to DNA test your adopted pet, test results may vary from company to company and our breed guess may not be reflected in those results as it is just that, our best guess. It is with deep longing that we wish there was a breed called "cute" as we believe all of our dogs would fall under this new breed classification!
Completion of an Adoption Application via our website www.midwestanimalrescue.org is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is the first step in our adoption process.
*Animals who are not fully vaccinated and altered are not eligible for long distance adoption.
When you adopt a pet from Midwest Animal Rescue and Services, your adoption fee covers: Microchip and registration, Core Vaccines including Rabies, Distemper and bordetella, age appropriate heartworm testing or FeLV-FIV testing, sterilization, heartworm/flea-tick prevention and deworming while in foster care.
Adoption fees are non-negotiable and can be paid by cashier's check, money order or credit card. We do not accept personal checks.
Any issues that arise after adoption are the full responsibility of the adopter after the finalization of adoption. Adoption fees are only part of the expense of owning a pet, so we ask you to consider the costs for the life of the pet before adoption. We recommend pet insurance.
