Sassy is a young BC female who was rescued by a Good Samaritan after Sassy had been at the vet for injuries related to falling out of a truck (twice). While she is mostly healed, she does have some toes that are crooked and nails that are sensitive. She also continues to have some ongoing issues with her right hip that we are working on through medication (possibly underlying nerve damage); any adopter will need to continue to monitor her hip and leg for future care.
A high energy, high drive dog, Sassy has been assessed for sporting suitability. She has extreme ball and disc drive, assertive and focused. She needs a secure fence if there is any roads nearby, as she is obsessed with chasing cars along the fence line. She has good recall and walks well on a leash, and is cat friendly. Sassy does NOT play with other dogs – she ignores them and can live happily with them, but she is only focused on her ball and her people. She does love to snuggle with you on the couch or bed.
Sassy has LOTS of “quirks”. She is very car-reactive – barking at them along a fence if she can see/ hear them, or barking at them while riding IN the car. She also digs and barks at dirt, as well as chases her tail at times. Sassy will need a very patient home that can give her plenty of outlets for her energy, including lots of walks, runs, and ball time, to help manage her obsessive tendencies. Her new family will also need to work with the vet on her medication protocol to help with underlying issues with her hip. Even with these quirks, Sassy is a loving girl who lives for her ball and snuggling. She has a great personality and disposition and will provide her new family with lots of fun times!
