Smiling in the face of adversity because people here care about me. At around 8 years old, I can still mix it up with my best buddies, Prince and Ruby even though we are all waiting for new homes. Our Mom got very sick and passed away and we are back at the shelter where she took each of us in when we were at our most unhappy and vulnerable.

Our 4-pack included Sissy who did go home with a new family recently. We are all senior dogs who are housebroken and comfortable around other dogs. Prince is the shyest one but we are one grand trio to behold on a walk together! I’m Sadie with the dense black and brown coat and distinctive widow’s-peak. I’m a little overweight from inactivity.

It would not be surprise to look at me lying around and think I’m a little depressed at the huge change in my life, but I’m doing the best I can to adapt. It wouldn’t be a stretch to call me a couch potato, but I have been enjoying the play yard romps and belly scratches that the volunteers provide.

For an easy dog who does not require a ton of exercise – pick me to be your gal pal.

Sure, I’m small, but what an athlete I am! At about 18-months old, my jumping skills are peak. In the blink of an eye, I can leap silently from floor to table or onto your lap. Tall fences are no challenge for me. I can climb over and dig under them, so the best home for me is where I will get plenty of face time with people who are active. I love walking, running, and learning new things. I’m very treat oriented which makes me very trainable. I used to be scared and skittish, but that is no longer the case. I adore people including kids. I was in a home with another big dog and 2 small children. It was my grabbing the cat’s tail that landed me back at the shelter.

At my age, I cannot be the last thing on the list because I have a lot of energy, enthusiasm and a need for affection and attention that requires time and interest. I would be great at agility training.

With my wire-haired tresses and pricked ears, I am beyond adorable. My looks combined with my antics remind some of the flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz, but you don’t have to be a wizard to make me part of your family. You just need to understand that terrier mixes like me need more than just food, water and shelter.

I have been trained to walk with a Halti and am very good at staying by your side when it is used. On a regular collar, I can pull a bit, but at a scant 20 pounds or so, it isn’t going to take your arm off.
To all those active dog-loving, trail-walking, morning-jogging people out there...please give me a chance to show you I’m a gold-medal choice.

I’m a looker! With my freckles, speckles and splashes of peach on a rotund canvas of cream, I get all the eyeballs as I sashay on leash with the volunteers. All the attention I get, the smiles, the extra walks and the excellent belly rubs tells me that I have them wrapped around my hammy paw. And luckily they forgive my mouthy interludes when I get revved up from excitement.

I’m a grand walking partner. Most of the time I’m a really good girl walking almost at the perfect pace. Sure there are moments when I spy a fat groundhog in the high grass and tug without warning, but every dog does that, right?

Although you’ll hear that I ought not to live with another dog, I’ve been ambivalent to most of my kennel mates. I don’t look at any of them when it’s my turn for a walk. I ignore them as I head past their kennels all jealous and barking because I’m going out!

I respond to “sit” and “down” beautifully. If I got a reasonable amount of exercise and had a stable routine I would go from good to solid gold. I just need a chance to shine.

I shouldn’t be counted out for being a little older. Actually my age should work a bit more in my favor since I’m fit and active but can still chill during downtime with ease. Currently around 6 years old, I have plenty enough energy for the average person, but not so much that I would drive you nuts. I love walks in any weather, but am also very happy to just “hang” with people.

My life before was a mystery. As a coonhound mix there was probably some expectation of me hunting, but that is not what I’m all about. Sure I’ll put my nose to ground and check out the world through my nostrils like any self-respecting hound would, so it might surprise you to learn that I am a breeze to walk on leash.

Though I don’t have much training ... yet, I respond to treats which will make training easy. I’m so sweet and good-natured, I would easily integrate into any family with the youngest of kids to the oldest of seniors. I love to be handled, petted, brushed and engaged. When I hear the words, “Good girl,” when walking, my ears perk up and I turn my head. I like a lot of other dogs, but would need to be properly introduced to a cat to see if that would work.

When it’s time to “Buddy Up” I hope you think of me. Having the most popular name for a dog has gotten me nowhere so far. I was in a foster home for a few months but my foster mom worked long hours and I was alone too much. I’m very good company — social, outgoing and loyal to a fault. Some other great qualities I possess include being potty-trained and walking well on leash.

There are some dogs I like and others I tolerate but I won’t be pulling your arm out to lunge at them. I don’t care that much. I can even live peaceably with a cat if the situation calls for it. I’m very flexible! Specifically, I am your basic, mid-size, middle-age, beagle-boxer mix with a little extra padding that I’m hoping to walk off. Maybe we can do that together.
