And now a few words from me:
Hi there! I’m Sassy by name, not nature! There’s nothing in this world that I would love more than to curl up on your lap for some cuddles. I’m curious about meeting new people and dogs and although I’m shy at first, I’m not timid and don’t cower. I’m very tolerant and roll with whatever is happening in my world, and I’m quiet too. I’d love to be your new best little buddy.
And now a few words from my foster family:
Sassy is a super-sweet girl who wants very much to curl up on your lap and snooze. In fact, she will whine until she gets her way or is told to sit down. She is easy-going and up for anything, as long as you are by her side. Sassy doesn’t show interest in toys or playing with other dogs, but does enjoy a wee walk. Going to bed in the crate is a challenge for Sassy, as it means being separated from you and she whines when first in the crate. She does settle down with a quick cuddle and firm direction. She is just starting to go in on her own throughout the day to lie down. There were some accidents in the first few days here, but she is getting the hang of bell training and asking to go outside. If you are looking for a faithful companion who will look up at you with adoring brown puppy-dog eyes, Sassy is your gal!
