Dog of the Month


Sadies story is one we see to often but never gets easier. We dont know what her home life was like but what we do know is with multiple sightings and calls Sadie sat on the side of the road all night and day waiting for her family to return or find her. She refused to move from the same spot, an put up a fight when we tried to pick her up. For days Sadie looked for a way out of the shelter to return back to her spot to keep waiting. With love and time she has blossomed into a playful, loving girl, who takes a little awhile to trust adults. However she LOVES kids, all ages, she is determined to be their best friend.
