I wrote last week about Sassy, who is an 11-pound chihuahua and schnauzer mix we are fostering. This is a wonderful dog who can bring a great deal of joy to the right home for many years to come.
Sassy has fur that is a combination of wiry and soft textures. Sassy is 7 years old and has had the same owner all of her life. Her owner went away to college and the kid's parents decided they didn't want to care for a dog any longer, so they dumped her off at the Fulton County dog pound, where she was rescued by Planned Pethood.
Sassy is a sweet little dog. She's very friendly, not at all hyperactive, but still has plenty of energy and a lot of living to do. Sassy is fine with other dogs, with cats, and loves children too. She is quite numble, being able to dance on two legs for an impressive amount of time. Sassy is housebroken, and walks to the back door when she needs to go outside.
Sassy will bark at strangers, or when someone arrives at the door, and is known to give squirrels a good chase. Generally, though, she prefers to cuddle, and likes to play hide-and-seek if you are sitting on the couch with a blanket. We are especially desirous of finding Sassy a good home because our children are becoming quite attached to this well-mannered lttle dog.
For more information on adopting Sassy, or any other rescue dogs, see the Planned Pethood website. If you would like to see Sassy in person, she will be at the Adoptathon at the PetSmart in Spring Meadows on Saturday, December 8, from 11 am to 2 pm.
