About SadieAnn T
Adoption Fee: $...no adoption fee, medical coverage provided for life
SadieAnn T. is a gentle, affectionate 11-year-old female German Shepherd Dog. She was adopted by an older couple as a puppy. They cared for her until her “mom” passed away and her “dad” was moved to a senior care facility where SadieAnn could not live. She was turned over to the animal shelter where she was confused but eager to be with people and very friendly to everyone who came along. Due to her age, she was unlikely to find a new home without the help of Thulani Senior German Shepherd Rescue.
During her time at Thulani Central, we learned that she has no obvious medical problems, good mobility and knows a lot of commands. She is fine with other dogs and is very open to meeting new dogs and new people. SadieAnn loves to be with people – she comes right up and asks for snuggles. She is good on leash and getting even better with practice. SadieAnn is a medium energy dog who really wants to have a new family to love.
UPDATE: SadieAnn has been thriving in her foster home. She is a social butterfly who loves adults and even young children. She is very affectionate and playful. She likes to show off her goofy side and in true shepherd fashion shows off her vocalness as well. Her favorite toy is a ball and she insists on always having one in her mouth. SadieAnn loves her walks, but she can be insistent in following all of the interesting things she smells. She is an athletic girl with medium energy who can’t wait to find a family who will give her all the attention she craves.
SadieAnn T. Summary:
- Female, 11 yrs old, weighs 67lbs, current on shots
- Good with Adults, older children and travel in the car
- Cats TBD
- Located in Northern California
SadieAnn passed a set of evaluation tests before being accepted into the TSGSR. The tests are not intended to assess how smart the dog is but are important for TSGSR to determine if the dog is expected to be safe in a family home. The tested behaviors check to see if the dog will guard or protect food or toys from people, will tolerate handling all over its body (including ears, nose, lips to check teeth, lifting paws, belly, back, and gently pulling the tail). She remained calm during all of these tests and showed no aggressive tendencies. Kobuk, one of our shelter test dogs, thinks she is beautiful and sweet and says you should adopt her.
Check back often. We will be updating her bio as we learn more about her!
