If you are interested in adopting this dog, please download and complete an Adoption Questionnaire from our website and email You can learn about the adoption process and find a Word, PDF and ONLINE version of the questionnaire by visiting:   Dog's Name: Sage Estimated Breed : Hound Mix Approximate Age:  1 year Approximate Weight: approx. 50 lbs  Currently Living at:  Boarding Adoption Fee:  $325   DOG'S DESCRIPTION Sage is special!  When she first came to K-9, she was extremely withdrawn and fearful, the result of her being mistreated/neglected in the past. This sweet, spunky girl has made amazing progress — her foster family is super proud of her! Here are just some of her awesome qualities: She’s house-trained and crate-trained. She loves playing with other dogs. She quickly learned “sit” and “lie down” and is working on “stay” and “shake”. She loves belly rubs. She will gently lick peanut butter from your fingers!  She’s a beautiful girl! Sage’s history means she will need an experienced owner who will be patient with her as she continues to grow more confident and trusting, and less anxious. She will need obedience and leash training. Apartment living is not for her, as she often likes to “announce” people as they enter the room.   Sage would be most happy in a home with a fenced-in yard and another dog. She gets startled by sudden movements or noises, so she shouldn’t be in a home with small children.  Sage’s foster family loves her and wants her to find a person/family as special as she is.  Could that be you?   Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.            Adoption fees cover basic vetting, spay/neuter surgery, rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention and monthly flea/tick prevention (while the animal is in our care), and transport costs from high-kill shelter. Please note that on average, K-9 Lifesavers spend significantly more on each dog than their adoption fee. Adoption fee for HW positive dogs also covers heartworm treatment at our partner vets.  Foster Program:    Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home.  For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit or email our Foster Coordinator at Sponsor Me!    Make a tax-deductible donation today by visiting us at .
