  Sadie is roughly 2 years old, and 40-45 lbs, and came into rescue from a southern pound with her 8 puppies! Now that her puppies have been weaned and adopted, and Sadie has been spayed... she's looking for a forever home of her very own. Read what her foster family has to say about Sadie below! Sadie came into our home in February with eight of her puppies. Now that her puppies have found their own homes, she is enjoying retirement alongside our resident dog. Most of her days are spent shadowing us around the house. She especially enjoys watching us cook, running around the backyard, and napping in whichever bed is closest to us. Some surprising likes of hers are car rides and the groomer. She is extremely disciplined about doing her business in the backyard without direct supervision, and she's also gotten very good at neighborhood walks.    In the time that she's been with us, Sadie's coat has cleared up and filled out, she has put on necessary weight, and she's been spayed. She is growing into a healthy, happy, and playful dog. She would benefit most from a household with at least one other adult dog; both to play with, and to learn from. Our dog helps her understand social cues, and has helped in her warming up to us. Perhaps due to her mysterious past, she is fearful of new people and there will be an adjustment period as she gets used to you. But showing her lots of love and patience will guarantee that she opens up in time.    Sadie sleeps in her kennel each night and voluntarily hangs out in there during the day as well. She loves peanut butter, ice cubes, and toys that test her chewing strength (it's high!). Sadie has learned how to sit on command, and is generally smart and attentive. With time and care, this sweet girl is sure to become a loyal and loving member of your family.  Adoption fees range from $325-$650 (youngest puppies usually on the higher end, if our vet spays or neuters them (otherwise young puppies $450-$485 if adopter finishes their vetting with a signed spay/neuter contract) seniors on the low end, all others somewhere in between). All dogs age appropriate vetted: Spayed or Neutered Rabies vaccine DHPP vaccine 4DX test (@8 months or older) Microchipped Dewormed Flea/tick prevention
