Meet SAKI

LOCATION: FOSTER CARE

Saki is sweet, and submissive once she has settled into a predictable environment, but does have fear of new people and surroundings. She was likely under-socialized when she was younger and as a result she needs a home with people who are willing and able to take everything very slowly with her, and to show her that she does not have to be afraid of the unknown. She would be wonderful as a ranch dog, as she is young, active and social once she feels safe in her environment. We do want to stress however that this will take time, and that every new encounter can be frightening to her. She gets along well with other dogs, but can be alpha so would do best with a dog who would either be neutral, or who would tell her that she was not in charge. As we feel that Saki would have the potential to nip if frightened and confused by fast movements and rough handling, we are looking for an adult only home for her in a rural environment with folks who have land for her to play on. Saki is not a dog who would enjoy walking through crowded streets with loud noises and strangers reaching for her unexpectedly, she is more of a ranch/ country bumpkin type of gal. She really is a loving and sweet girl, who will make the right people/person an amazing companion. We feel that Saki will blossom in a predictable and low key home with someone very patient, loving and understanding.

Saki was sent to a foster home, but was so frightened in the new environment that she hid under the table the whole first day and was returned before she was able to settle in and gain any confidence. She is a sensitive being who is looking for the same in her new companion. We have not tested Saki with cats but can do so upon request. Please send applications to foster or adopt Saki to sanctuary@milofoundation.org
