I'm very pleased to introduce Sandie, a beautiful young girl with good house manners and a very sweet personality. She's four years old, current on her shots, heartworm-negative, and in good health. She weighs 55 pounds - could stand to drop just a pound, maybe 2 - with a lovely dark gold coat. She is just a delight.
Sandie lived with her first family for over 3 years and was very well-loved. She knows house manners, can do well in a crate if she has to, respects a baby gate, hasn't had a single accident, and really enjoys being part of the day-to-day life of a family. For whatever reason, her first family, a military family, had to give her up, and she was adopted by another family where her habit of jumping up on the furniture caused a lot of stress for everyone involved, two-legged and four-legged. Sandie was returned to a shelter, and that's where RAGOM got involved. Sandie is settling in her foster home and doing nicely, and we're going to give her time to build her trust and confidence again.
Sandie enjoys playing with other dogs, but would not be a good candidate for a dog park; she's a very energetic doggie playmate, and not all dogs like that kind of thing. She absolutely loves playing with our youngest resident dog, but every once in a while, they get too rambunctious and the playing comes to a halt.
Sandie's perfect household would be one where she could be included in activities and allowed on the furniture. She likes to sneak up on the bed in the middle of the night, although she is comfortable on a dog bed on the floor. She just likes being with her people.
We're still getting to know Sandie and don't know yet how she'll do with children or cats. She has impressed us with how calm and gentle she can be (she takes treats soooo carefully). Her first morning with us, she encountered a frog outside, and it only took one loud "No" to convince her to leave it alone - very nice! It's a bit too soon for Sandie to meet her forever family; she needs a bit of time to adjust from all the changes in her life. Please check back in and see how Sandie is doing. She really is a gem.
