Micaela is the sweetest girl and so trusting! She is medium energy: she enjoys her walks, play time, and fetch, but also frequently naps and loves to cuddle and relax!
She is housetrained and does very well in her crate. She is working on basic commands but she is so smart and is already starting to pick up “sit” after 2 days in her foster home. She already does well on her leash with very little pulling. She is great in the car and does well out in public places too!
Micaela is great with other dogs, dog-savvy cats and older kids. She loves playing with the resident dog in her foster home. She's been showing mild signs of resource guarding with the other dog around bones/food, but is happy to enjoy those items in her crate. This may go away once she is fully settled into her home.
Micaela was found chained up in a place full of garbage, sitting in the hot sun with no food or water. Luckily our rescue partner found her and was able to save her from that misery and get her safe!

In some cases this dog may be pending an adoption already, and their profile has not been updated yet. Please note, SPR does not guarantee the breed of any dog or puppy unless stated otherwise. All breeds listed are educated best estimates by transferring shelter staff, our volunteers or our vets. The dog may have some genetic material of an American Staffordshire Terrier (pit bull). The dogs are usually mixes of many breeds, making them the All American MUTT. Our dogs are rescued from various situations (kill-shelters, owner surrenders, strays, etc). It is most likely that both their parents were strays and mixes of some sort.
If you are interested in this dog, you MUST submit an application. Sandy Paws Rescue does not a have a public shelter in Mass, so there is no building you can visit without an appointment. Our dogs live in private foster homes or boarding kennels down south until adopted, and foster care homes through out MV, Cape Cod and other parts of MA. A majority of our dogs are adopted/spoken for prior to transport and release from state mandated isolation.
