Meet Saisy, who is known as "Roo" by her friends and family. She is a designer breed (boxer/chihuahua). She has the coloring, expressive eyes, small underbite, and temperament of the boxer and the small size, ears, face and "I own the world" attitude of a chihuahua. She was born paralyzed in the hind end, and the joints in her rear legs are mis-aligned. She was left outside of a hotel and was rescued and sent to APA for treatment!

Saisy's right leg had to be amputated and she cannot use her left one. However, she is very mobile with a wheelchair and by hopping. Due to the paralysis she cannot control her bowels and bladder, so she wears diapers and must be cleaned and changed several times a day. But she pays you back in spades with little loving kisses. She is a happy, active, and playful girl who enjoys a game of ball and is a champ at tug of war. But she is mostly happy just being with her person.

If you have room for this sweet girl in your home and heart, she will reward you with a lifetime of loyalty, companionship and love.

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
