Sadie is a young adult Shepherd mix who was found last summer in a garbage dump looking for food. Her rescuers took her in and have given her shots and had her spayed. She is gradually gaining weight. Although Sadie is currently living in a safe and caring foster home with two other dogs, Sadie is just one too many mouths to feed and provide quality vet care for. So the best thing for Sadie at this time is for her to go to a new home where she can have the care and attention that she deserves.
Sadie would do well with anyone who would give her love and play with her. She does well inside but likes to go out to a fenced yard to play and soak up the sun. She is used to being crated inside at night, and when her human companions are gone during the day. She would probably do great with a younger male or even a female dog who is passive and submissive. Sadie does not do well with an Alpha female. She is a companion dog and would do well with someone who would take the time to walk her and train her on a leash. She is very smart and has learned to sit on command. Sadie does not bark.
Sadie was probably abused as a younger dog and still has some of the characteristics of tucking her tail and dropping to the floor when you pick up something like a newspaper or raise your voice. However, she gets back up quickly with her tail wagging. She does not show any signs of food aggression toward humans but is fed away from the other dogs. She has not been around many other dogs but will not back down if confronted. She gets excited and whines when she sees you. When other people come in the house she is a little shy until she warms up to them but is not aggressive toward humans.
Sadie loves to play with a male dog in her foster home and loves her toys. She loves to give kisses in your face if you allow her to. She does not like loud noises and quick movements with items in your hands. Sadie loves tug of war and is content to play by herself with toys that squeek.
Sadie is an independent rescue supported by DogsOnly. She will NOT be available to meet every Saturday except for holiday weekends at the DogsOnly adoption showing at Petco on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot.

We always try and answer all emails within 24 hours. All of our young and adult dogs require a 2 week home visit before finalizing the adoption process. This is to help ensure it is a good match for all involved without making a final commitment. An adoption fee is charged for Sadie ’s adoption. Puppies are not available to go on home visits. All of our rescues are in private homes and not available to be visited outside of showing times.
Please don’t be tempted to adopt Sadie on an impulse. You should take the time to carefully consider the long term commitment, expense, and passion it takes to give her the home that she deserves. She ’ll reward you with unbounded love and devotion, but you must be committed and serious about your decision to bring him into your life. Remember, this is an adoption, not a sale, and we’re very serious about making sure that both you and Sadie are a good match for each other.
All DogsOnly foster homes work with our rescues to ensure they are crate trained and most are also housetrained. Few of the DogsOnly fosters have cats in their homes so we can only make our best guess as to how our rescues would do with cats. We rescue from high kill shelters and once accepted into our program, none of our rescues are euthanized. We provide for all their vet care, socialization and training until an appropriate home can be found.
DogsOnly relies solely on donations and is a 501(c)3 Humane Society. Our mission is to rescue dogs that most other groups are not interested in due to their size, breed, age, health or other various reasons, and to provide education resources for dog owners and those with an interest in the wellbeing of dogs. DogsOnly believes that no dog should be left behind.
Thank you for your interest in rescue and in saving the life of a dog. Every day in the United States, 11,000 dogs die.
