Sassy has been adopted! 10-04-2015

Female Golden Retriever /Border Collie mix about 3-5 years old. Gets along with other dogs. Not for homes with kids. Not cat friendly.

Sassy was found living in a field with a group of dogs. While she is very social with other dogs, it was clear that she had spent little to no time with people and wasn't sure what to make of us. We placed her into a foster home, but she avoided contact with people at all times. We knew she was a sweet girl and just needed a helping hand, so she went to a live-in training facility where she receives one-on-one attention with a trainer who is amazing with these types of dogs.

After building a bond with her trainer, he was able to pet her, leash her up, walk her, bathe her, and teach her commands. She's now working with a lot of different volunteers and has learned that we only want the best for her. She's come an extremely long way and we have nothing but high hopes for her! She knows all of her basic commands, is potty trained, and ready to join your family!

Please note that it does take Sassy time to bond with new people and she will need some time to build a trusting relationship with her new family. She is a very sweet dog who needs a patient, understanding home.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
