Changing Lives … One Tail at a Time …


Sadie is a beautiful, Australian Shepherd/Catahoula/Basset Hound, 18 month old house-trained 40 lb low-rider mix with a cute kink in her leg and unique Merle Blue coloring.

She had a rough start to her young life; mainly confined in kennels without the love and care every puppy deserves, Sadie grew up less trusting of humans (especially grown males- she tends to be a fan of the ladies) and needs a special home to help her fully come out of her shell. Now that she’s learning people can be kind, she follows her foster mom around the house like a protective little merle shadow.

We had the kink in her leg examined by a specialist who confirmed she was born with it and it does not affect her mobility in any way. She is a sweet, kind and semi-playful baby girl who likes to lounge on her pillow during the day, and is happiest chewing on her bone during her down time. At bedtime she likes to tuck into her crate. While she likes to play with other dogs, she is really thriving being the only pet in her foster home.

Sadie is making great progress and is ready to find an open-hearted forever home. Although Sadie is completely safe around kids, she continues to show high levels of anxiety around children and needs a home with adults only.
