My name is Sabrina (#3066). My foster family says I am a “beautiful, sweet girl.” I am ready to be with my forever family. I am most definitely a lap dog, snuggling on the couch next to you, most often with my head in your lap. I love getting pets, and often will start to do the sleepy head nod as you pet me. I’m a pretty quiet, mellow girl. I get along well with the resident Golden Retriever/Lab and two resident cats in my foster home. The other dogs and I play fetch in the backyard together, and sometimes chase after each other.
When I came here, I was underweight and lethargic. The vet found I had swallowed some tubing and plastic which were surgically removed. I recently had my final check-up and was given a clean bill of health. My energy level right now is pretty sedate; however, once I gain weight it is expected my energy level will increase and I will become more active. My family will want to be diligent in keeping my home environment and backyard free of all inedible objects, including toys and balls, to keep me from swallowing anything.
I walk well using the gentle harness, and am currently working on the “leave it” command and learning not to jump up on people. I am also working on the “off” command due to counter surfing when food is present. I am housetrained and will go to the door when I need to potty. I do well in my crate at night, most of the time putting myself in there when I know it’s bedtime and I sleep there through the night. I also ride well in the car.
During the day I will stay comfortable in my crate for about four hours then I need to be let out to potty and stretch my legs. My crate needs to be kept clear of toys and bones.
Sabrina was adopted on October 30, 2018
