Sitter Needed: 06/24/22-07/03/22

If you come to meet Sage, she will fall in love with you right away. Then she'll want to cuddle with you and get belly rubs - hopefully all day. She loves everyone and is a gentle, easygoing girl who wants their affection - and belly rubs.

She is a lazy lady whose perfect day starts with waking up and munching a few scraps of her fosters' food, then going back for a nap. Later, she likes to go outside and chase a squirrel briefly, then came back in for another nap. When she does get a burst of energy, she will do a zoomie, then roll over for another belly rub. She does enjoy going for short walks, excited at first and then strolling nicely. At home, she's patient with her fosters' kids and happy to cuddle up against them. She's cautious and careful around their baby. She understands "sit and is house-trained. And she's happy in her crate and does well there or free roaming when her fosters are away.

Sage will love a home with a family who can give her a soft bed and good treats. She will be happy if they're home all day, but will also do well if they're away to work. She'll also be happy to be the only pet, but may get along well with another quiet, lazy, senior pup. Come meet this sweet girl. Offer her a belly rub and she'll trot home with you!
Come meet your new best friend
