Sweet Sadie

The following update is from Sadie's foster ... sounds like Sadie has wiggled her way into her foster's heart ... how about letting her wiggle her way into your heart??

"Sadie came to our home for fostering just days following the loss of our 12 year old Newfoundland Cody.  Some things are meant to be!  This sweet older girl helped fill in the large gap he left and helped us with our heartache.  While Cody was completely blind his whole life, Sadie came to us with fairly significant hearing loss.  She has received some mixed signals from me as I transition, but she gets along just fine with very little extra assistance required.  

Sadie is a very quiet girl who follows us wherever we go.  She gets along extremely well with other dogs.  We have three resident dogs, and she just rolled with the pack, minding her p's and q's.  She is also perfectly fine with my 13 year old daughter and her dancing friends, our old siamese cat, and is very placid about her food bowl . . . in fact, nothing seems to bother her at all!  VERY low maintenance. 

I will say that a fenced yard and a watchful eye to make sure she doesn't slip out the door would be required.  She got out one night while I was taking out the garbage and off she went.  I chased her barefoot for about 10 minutes.  This is when her deafness is a liability. 

I can't say enough about this wonderful dog.  She is 1/100th the work of a new puppy
