PET OF THE WEEK

Sasha

Animal ID: 47779 Name: Sasha Age: 2 yrs 7 months Sex: Female Species: Dog Breed: German Shepherd/Aus Cattledog Color: Blonde and Brown

Included in the adoption fee:

- Spay/Neuter surgery (done before being placed up for adoption) - Microchipping - First set of vaccines - Complimentary post-adoption vet exam - And so much more!

THi I'm Sasha! I'm a very active and loving girl in need of a great home. All my energy makes me very excitable and exuberant, I'm going to need lots of physical and mental exercise. Teenage kids would be the best fit for me, I can run with them when they ride their bikes, chase a ball, or roll around in the grass. I promise to bring them inside before the sun goes down, just before! ;) We'll learn all about how to reign in my energy at our training classes here at the shelter. When I play with other dogs I can be a touch bossy but it's just because I'm so excited, it's a good idea to introduce me to other dog house mates before going home with you. Then we can play together properly so everyone has fun. I love to play, play, play and go, go, go! So much so that I may venture out of the yard to make my own adventures. Please supervise my outside time! Of course knowing that I have lots of love from my new family will keep me at home. See you soon!!
