If you come to meet Sadie, this very affectionate young girl will be so happy to see you. She's never met a stranger and thinks everyone is her friend! She LOVES people and hopes they'll pick her up and give her cuddles and pets.

Now in foster, Sadie also lives with dogs and adores them, too. She loves to play with her foster and the dogs, and also loves to chew bones and play tug-o-war with stuffed toys and ropes. Then she cuddles in her foster's lap. She's also living with cats and is super curious but doesn't pay much attention to them. In a previous home, she also lived with kids and loved to play with them.

Sadie is an active, adventurous and playful girl even though she's in a wheelchair. She was hit by a car and now has little use of her back legs. In her wheelchair, she can run around outdoors and enjoys it. She doesn't use a leash for her walks, but never leaves her person's side. She'll always want to be right next to you and your dogs on walks.

At home, Sadie stays in her crate and does great when her foster is away, just excited to see her come back. She is almost house-trained and just needs to be carried outside and held up to potty. Back indoors, she loves being wrapped up in a soft blanket and cuddled in a lap.

Sadie will love a home with people and other animals she can cuddle and play with. She will thrive in a home with dog buddies, and she'll love going outdoors to run and play with her humans. Come meet this lovable, outgoing girl!

PUPPIES AND OTHER HIGHLY-ADOPTABLE DOGS DISCLAIMER:

Puppies and other highly-adoptable dogs (small dogs or desirable-breed dogs) at APA! are very high in demand and usually have several interested adopters. Inquiring about a dog, meeting a dog, and even applying for a dog does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt the dog. Only one household will be able to adopt each dog, which means all other interested households will inevitably and unfortunately be disappointed. Please consider this in your search and set your expectations accordingly. Please also consider that adult dogs do not typically have competing adopters, and they need furever homes, too! Additionally, APA! does not allow the adoption of dogs who are related (e.g., littermates or mom and pup) to the same household for behavioral reasons.
