Sasha is a Cinderella beauty looking for her Prince or Princess Charming!

Sasha is one of the sweetest and most patient dogs ever. She deserves to be pampered and loved! When you sweet talk to her, she is surprised that you are talking to her, but she laps up the attention. Start petting her and she will "paw" you to continue.

Sasha has not had an easy life. She has an old injury to one leg that causes her to limp and it takes a little bit more effort to stand up. She negotiates the 2 steps to the backyard in her foster home without a problem, but she is not interested in doing more steps than that. She recently had a mass removed from the "good" leg and her walking pace has increased. She will do cute little puppy hops when it is time for food!

Sasha is the perfect dog for the laid-back person. She is leash-trained, but she is satisfied with a walk to the end of the driveway. She isn't interested in being entertained with balls or toys. She just wants a comfortable place to lay down in the room where you are, good food, and a cuddle anytime you want to cuddle. She does enjoy rolling in the grass and taking a few minutes of sunshine to keep her Vitamin D levels up.

Sasha has not shown any problems with other dogs. She doesn't play with them, but she has been lending moral support while they patrol the fence. She seems to love children. When a two-year-old comes to visit, she goes to him immediately and waits to be petted. She did notice the cat next door, but she didn't bark or charge. In fact, Sasha doesn't bark very often. She will softly bark in her sleep and she barked one time when she couldn't find her foster mom. She has excellent manners. She will clean up all of the dog-food bowls if you let her and she is willing to pick up any of the pieces that fell on the floor. She doesn't beg, though, for treats or human food.

Sasha is a beautiful, sweet girl ready to give someone her complete and total adoration. She is the perfect dog if you are looking for someone to chill with while she worships you. Come meet her!
