Sadie is an extremely loving Australian Shepherd mix who is ready for adoption. She is 7 years old, she is a bit underweight at 31 pounds (she should weigh closer to 35), and she has a fluffy red merle coat. Sadie is housebroken, crate-trained, and she is just beginning to learn her basic obedience commands. She walks OK on the leash – she doesn’t pull, but she could use some extra training so that she walks in a straight line by your side. Sadie also rides very relaxed and quietly in the car.
Sadie loves people! She is an extremely high Velcro girl who wants to be by your side at all times. Getting pets and snuggles puts her in her “happy place”. Sadie is also a low-to-medium energy girl. She enjoys going on short walks and playing a few rounds of fetch, but she is soon ready to just hang out and be loved on by her family. Sadie gets along nicely with other dogs outside the home, but she is more of an alpha girl in the home and she tries to “hog” all of her foster mom’s attention. Sadie was very interested when she met a cat, but she did not show signs of a high prey drive.
The ideal family for Sadie is calm, happy, loving, and ready for a cute lovebug to join them! A fenced yard would be nice but not required, as Sadie has great recall and she always close by her people. Any children should be at least 10 years old, and Sadie would do best as the only dog in the home. Sadie is the sweetest girl, and if you are interested in learning more about her, more about our adoption process or complete our adoption application, please visit our website, www.sohodogrescue.org. Sadie is fostered in Lakeland, FL.
Sadie's adoption donation is $300.
