I wish I could write a love story for Sadie. There is no doubt in my mind that she deserves it, but Sadie has been one of the unlucky ones. At 3 years old, her love story has yet to begin.
Sadie entered the shelter a little more than a year old. We're not sure why- she could have been a stray, been mistreated or been turned in for being a happy, active young dog. She was adopted. That was supposed to be her big break; her forever home. But, that wasn't the case. Sadie was then returned to the shelter a little over a year later. Her family was moving and apparently they made the decision that Sadie wasn't coming with them. Sadie again sat in a loud shelter, but this time, she was 3 years old and about 25lbs overweight, Although she was a staff favorite at the shelter, no one was beating down the doors for her.
Yes, we're Buffalo Pug & Small Breed Rescue. Correct, Sadie is not a small breed. She's a large, mixed breed that deserved to finally know what a home, unconditional love and stability felt like. There is just no way we can see sad, hopeless eyes and turn away- that's not our style. Sadie has been transported here and is now in rescue with us. She butters our biscuits- She's just an awesome dog. Only a fool would let her go.
Sadie is housebroken. She will hold it until she gets outside and then promptly goes. She walks well on a leash, rarely pulling. She rides like a goddess in the car, relaxing on the backseat the whole way. She's quiet, and rarely makes a sound. Sadie loves toys, especially squeaky toys. She likes other dogs and has met others from 7lbs to 70lbs. She doesn't jump up and isn't destructive. She loves her belly rubs and will give kisses too. She's not a velcro dog and is happy taking a mid afternoon nap, but will certainly be a loyal forever friend. Sadie would do fine in a home with children 12+ as well. The only flaw we can find in this girl is that she isn't fond of cats. Other than that, you can hand Sadie her angel wings because she's earned them.
Sadie is a big gal- teetering at about 85lbs- when she should be about 60. We don't know how this happened- maybe eating table food? Too much dog food? Not enough exercise? A combination of the 3? But, we've started Sadie on a bit of a diet. She eats small portions and exercises daily. She's a big gal- so she can't run a marathon or go for a long hike- yet. She is happy to chase a ball of squeaky toy in the backyard or go for a trot around the block. With time, she will shed some much needed pounds in a healthy fashion.
Sadie is available for adoption, so lets start the next chapter of her life and begin the love story- apply to adopt Sadie on our website if you can promise her forever.
