Are you the type of person who notices the person standing in a corner all alone at a social function and you make a point to make help them feel part of the crowd? Do you have a soft spot in your heart for underdogs? Well, if so, then Sassy sure would like to meet you! This pretty little girl was born around December of 2017 and was surrendered to us along with two other dogs back in December of 2018. Sassy and the other two dogs had lived most of her lives outside and, as a result, are socially backward and shy around new people. When someone enters the room, Sassy retreats to the back of her kennel cowering. To add to her misfortune, she went into heat before we could set her up for a spay which, of course, delayed her being eligible for adoption (her spay is now scheduled for 4/04/19). While Sassy is very loving with the staff and volunteers she's familiar with, she remains afraid of new people. She just needs a quiet home with a patient adopter who will allow her to relax and let down her guard so that she can finally be the fun-loving dog we just know is hiding inside her. Sassy happily introduced herself to every dog that came into the vet's office when we took her in for her spay so we think she'd love a home that already has another canine-friendly dog or two. A fenced yard will be a must for Sassy, also. Having cared for Sassy all these months, we know how sweet a dog she actually is once she warms up to you. If you want to be the one to show Sassy a 'brave new world,' just stop by our shelter and ask to meet her. It might take a few visits to win her over but we promise you the end result will be well worth the extra effort! /// SASSY IS SPONSORED THRU NOVEMBER 2019 BY OUR FRIENDS AT OLDFATHER LAW FIRM.
