Love Aussies? Then you need to meet our Sadie. This beautiful and very camera-friendly girl found herself at a high-kill rural county dog shelter. We don’t know whether she came into the shelter as a stray or was an owner surrender but we suspect the latter since she was at a good weight and had a beautiful coat also. Fortunately, a neighboring humane society pulled Sadie to safety and then made arrangements to send her to us so that she could take her time finding the perfect new home. The sending shelter estimated Sadie to be about 7 years-old but we think she looks and act significantly younger than that, perhaps in the 4-5 year-old range. Sadie has had excellent crate manners in her foster home and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee that. Sadie definitely likes to be the boss around other dogs so may do best in a home as the only dog. In her foster home, she does fine with male dogs but can be very dominant in the presence of other female dogs. She will wrestle and play chase a little bit with her fellow foster dogs but likes to set the rules. Sadie keeps her crate spotless so is likely to be housetrained but we can’t guarantee it. She’s going to be a great companion for someone who loves the breed and wants an active Aussie who is the past the puppy crazies. Sadie weighs about 47 pounds and her adoption fee is $150. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Sadie. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
