In addition to the adoption fee of $400, I will require a training deposit of $150 which is fully refundable upon completion of a training course.
Meet Sadie. A wonderful 7 year old black Lab who has been a family dog her whole life living with young kids and two small dogs. Sadie was surrendered due to a cruciate ligament tear as her family could not afford the surgery. Sadie is tentatively scheduled for TPLO surgery on 7/21. Check back as we learn more about Sadie and help her during her recovery.
Foster Update - 9/20/22
Sadie has been given the all clear by the Vet and is now available for adoption. Sadie has been a super pup during her rehab and she is going to be a great family dog. Sadie is a mildly Velcro dog. If you are a work at home family, Sadie will curl up at your feet while you work. At night, if you are watching TV, she will cuddle with you on the couch. Sadie is fully housebroken and sleeps through the night. She crates well, but is trustworthy when left alone and thus does not need to be crated. Sadie loves going for walks although she would probably not be a good jogging/running partner. She is very good on-leash however occasionally she is mildly reactive to other dogs and sometime people. She is a mild resource guarder. She is a super happy girl that loves playing ball and will try her hardest to get you to engage and play with her. Sadie loves to be involved with her humans. Sadie does not engage with her other 4-legged friends so she would not be a good playmate for another dog. Sadie is a slim, trim, well-muscled girl. There is no fat on this beautiful lady. She has a swimmer's body but I don't know if she likes the water. For a 7-year-old, she is very spry and energetic. She is a medium energy girl (unless you're playing ball of course!). She is an alert barker and will of course join in if another dog starts barking. She seems to be trained as she knows the common commands. She's not clumsy or a jumper so children are OK. Sadie does not seem to have any prey drive so she may be OK with cats but this has not been verified. She takes treats gently and does not beg at the dinner table. Sadie rides great in the car. Sadie will make a great family/companion pet for a moderately active family.
