Housebroken and crate trained
Good with kids
Dog selective. Cats unknown.
Piggy grunts, heart felt eyes, loyalty to last a lifetime…That is a bare bones summary of our sweet adoptable Sage. This girl is special and was saved by MABBR from being euthanized at a shelter that was unsuccessful at getting her a home. Is it because she is a black dog, whom are overlooked so often? We will never know why so many people walked past her kennel and showed no interest in this loveable girl. She is an angel that will love just about any human that comes into her life. Sage is about 4 years old and around 60lbs.
Sage is quite possibly the best kept secret in the world. Get her one-on-one and she reveals her charm and easygoing nature. She is so very different from what you would first think when meeting her in the kennel and in playgroups. Someone was good to this dog once upon a time; they taught her things, like how to give love and also some cute little tricks. But someone was also neglectful, and her body shows some wear-and-tear for it. She’s smart, and curious, and generous. She’s easy and tolerant, the way momma dogs nearly always are. She settles fast and snores loud. We hope someone gets a chance to see her the way we do soon and makes her their own.
Sage knows how to live in a home environment as she has lived her life with a family. She has been known to get along with dogs, but she comes on strong and will need patience, time and understanding if her future adopter has any pets. The easiest solution is finding Sage a home without other animals, but since she has been successful at coexisting and playing with k9 friends, we are leaving the option open to the right adopter with the right skillset and mindset to set Sage up for success. It’s unknown whether she could live with a cat.
She is a sensitive soul full of love and kisses. She is gentle and loveable. The more people to love Sage, the happier she is. Her kisses and loving nature would surely bring the biggest smile to any kid (or adult for that matter) that is lucky enough to receive her love. Sage is longing for that final destination, a place to call home. Could that be you?
