Yesterday Melanie and I went to a family members home with Sassy. She had expressed some interest in the little meatball, so we did a meet and greet with Sassy, the family, and their dogs. After an uneventful meeting of the mutts we went inside the home to see if any dynamics would change. Everything was well so after some paperwork and hugs sassy is now with her new mom and family, we couldn’t have asked for a better fit for this little nub tailed potato.
Check out this happy girl!
Sassy is still up for adoption. Email us or go to our page “Get Involved” to fill out an application.
Look at this little meat pie snuggling with Lainey.
Poor Bear is having some skin inflammation and he is pretty upset with my solution.
We have been getting to know Sassy over the last couple weeks and she is amazing. She is very intelligent and already knows a few commands. She has been doing great in her crate and seems to love being in there during the day. She acts like she looks: tough and full of attitude. This little meatball is mellow the majority of the time, but when she is ready she plays hard. She will zoom around the house for about 20 minutes and then crash. Don’t let her grumpy face fool you, her affectionate side is in there too.
We have been temperament testing her with our personal dogs and so far it has been uneventful. She is a little dominant so would be better paired with a submissive male. She has also displayed some food aggression, but as long as there are controlled feedings, that shouldn’t be an issue.
We think Sassy will do great in any home with no cats. She comes from a family with several children of all ages, but will bolt out the front door if open, so the responsibility of all family members needs to be considered. Sassy has a strong prey drive and can never be off leash unless in a securely fenced yard.
She is getting her first round of shots tomorrow and will be up for adoption after she receives her boosters. Sadly, that means she can’t come to our event Saturday, but if you are interested in meeting Sassy soon please fill out an application and email it back to us.
Yesterday Bear thought he would sneak into some treats on top of his crate. After he ate a whole bag of doggy beef jerky he promptly threw it up. He had thrown up everything solid and could only keep down water in small amounts. I monitored him and he seemed to be fine afterwards. He had solid poop, he was hydrating slowly, and was still urinating normally.
Well, this morning we woke up to find he vomited blood sometime during the night. We rushed him to our vet and they are keeping him there today. They said that he has presented with pancreatitis and is indeed dehydrated. They are giving him fluids and gave him an injection for pain. We are picking him up later today and hopefully he returns to normal. If he has bloody stool or keeps vommitting they are going to have to hospitalize him.
Please keep Bear in your thoughts and cross your fingers that he rebounds quickly.
Through no fault of her own this little munchkin, Sassy, has been surrendered to us. She comes from a large family with children of all ages. The family’s environment wasn’t compatible with Sassy and so they chose to try and find her a better fit elsewhere.
This American Staffordshire/English Bulldog mix is a very sweet, playful, and confident girl who is dying to get back into a family of her own. She is roughly 6 years old and spayed. She comes in right at 50 pounds, but she is what we call a ‘pocket pit’ meaning she is very low to the ground. Her body resembles a small English Bulldog with the face of an American Bulldog. We are going to spend the next couple days getting her vaccinated and assessing her temperament.
From what we have seen she is going to be a wonderful family dog. More updates will come soon as we get to know her better.
