Miss Sadie is a great dog. She is independent, but very loyal. She knows all her basic commands such as sit, down, shake, roll over. She takes a bit of time to warm up to new people, but once given the opportunity to meet you on her terms is a friend for life.Sadie was well loved until family circumstances caught her in the middle of divorce, drug addiction and homelessness. Through it all, Sadie has maintained her sweet disposition.Sadie arrived in rescue with a severe ear infection, skin issues, and horribly overweight. Her coat was terribly matted, she was filthy and her health was at risk. Thankfully the shelter staff and ABR volunteers stepped forward to ensure Sadie has an opportunity to find that wonderful forever home that she deserves.
