They call her mellow yellow. Ok, maybe she's more of a tan than yellow, but Sadie Lynn is as mellow as they come. She has an easy-going personality and will make a wonderful companion for a like-minded couch potato or someone who works from home.

Sadie Lynn gets very excited to go on walks, although she doesn't need long walks and tends to tire after a few blocks. She's also not a fan of stairs, so the less to go up and down, the better. But she definitely likes being outside and is eager to greet other people and dogs when she's out and about, her tail wagging when she sees them. While not particularly playful, all the houses around Sadie's foster home have dogs, and if all the dogs are out at once, they sing their song and run along the fence together. Other than those few bursts of excitement, Sadie Lynn prefers to sit back and relax, but she still gets excited when she sees that leash come out.

Sadie Lynn has good manners in the home, she's house-trained and does well left alone. But she prefers you not do that and hang out and give her attention - she'll even gently nudge your hand if you mess up and stop petting her. She's like a little shadow and likes to be where you are, and one of her favorite places to be is laying next to your feet while you work on the computer or watch TV. And when you lay down on the couch, she'll put her head where yours is laying. She's a very sweet girl.

Sadie Lynn also gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home and is so laid back that when one of her foster doggie siblings gets jealous or territorial, she pays them no mind.

Sadie Lynn is ready to lounge the day away and keep you or that couch from getting too lonely. Come meet her today!
