Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Hey Chihuahua fans! Meet Chip, a special little senior chi mix. He loves belly rubs, going for walks, and napping by your side. Whether it's a day lounging at home or riding in the car to an adventure, he wants to be with his people! It takes a bit of time for him to trust someone, but once he does he's a wonderful, sweet, lovable, and loyal companion. Chip needs a forever home where he'll get plenty of TLC and knows he's safe and loved. Chip is around 10 years old, 11 pounds, is house trained, crate trained, excellent on a harness and leash, knows basic commands, understands many common words, and great in the car. He can learn to co-exist with other animals if they give him plenty of personal space, but he prefers the company of people. He would do best in a home without other pets, or possibly one or two other mellow pets. He loves children, but needs supervision with them (like any dog does) to ensure positive interactions. He will have to be given an affordable arthritis medication as needed. Chip is up to date on all vetting, including vaccines, de-worming, flea prevention, heart worm prevention, and is neutered. His adoption fee is $175. Apply to adopt at www.sadiesrescue.org

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Hound / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Meet Sky! We believe her to be a Hound mix, perhaps Hound and Lab. Sky is a loyal little girl who loves to be near her people, she will follow you all around the house. She is super sweet and loves to get attention and give kisses. She has a good amount of energy and is looking for an active owner who can help her get exercise and stimulation. Sky listens well and is eager to please. She enjoys going for walks and does nicely on a leash; and is learning her basic commands, and would like an owner who is willing to continue with that. She enjoys playing with her toys, especially her chew toys! Sky is mostly house trained, she just needs to be let out regularly. She stays in her crate while the humans are out of the house, though does voice her unhappiness with being crated at first. She will settle down and rest calmly after a bit of barking. At night she prefers to sleep in bed with the humans! She sleeps quietly all night at the foot of the bed, you hardly know she is there. But she will get up with you during the night so that you are not alone! Sky lives with two other male dogs in her foster home. She likes to wrestle and play with them, but she would also be just fine as an only dog child with some occasional doggie socialization- while she likes to play with her foster brothers, she seems to love attention from her people more. Sky is spayed, micro-chipped, up to date on deworming, vaccines, and is heart worm negative. Apply to adopt at www.sadiesrescue.org/forms/

      Sissy

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Mixed. Meet Sissy. Or Miss Sassy Pants if you will. This very special girl is looking for a very special family. While we don't know all the details of her history, we do know she was in a place where her main purpose was for breeding. And it doesn't appear she had much else. Sissy is a tiny, timid little girl who is just learning about life in spite of being over 6 years old. She is doing very well sleeping in her crate at night and she absolutely loves being able to cuddle up with you on the couch. She seems to get really excited for attention but then she will dodge away from you if you reach for her. It's as if she isn't sure if you will hurt her or not. But once she's in your arms, she's full of kisses and wiggles. Her foster family has been working very hard with her house training but it has been a bit of a challenge. We do feel she could succeed but it may be a long process so her adopter will have to understand that and be prepared. Although Sissy is sweet, we feel she would do best in a quieter home with no young children. Sissy also gets along with her foster family's dogs close in size but she can be a little uneasy around larger dogs so we do not wish to place her with any. Sissy's mouth and teeth were in horrible condition when she arrived so we had our vet do dental work on her when she went in for her spay. It turns out things were so bad they had to remove all of her teeth. She is healing up just fine and we imagine feeling a lot better without all that mouth pain. But she will need to be on a soft diet for the rest of her life. We don't think she minds though as she gobbles up every last bit of it! We know that Sissy may come with a few challenges. But having this little girl to welcome you home or snuggle with you at night will be well worth it! If you think you could offer her the home she needs, please submit an application at www.sadiesrescue.org and her foster Mom will be in touch. Sissy is spayed, microchipped, heartworm negative and up to date with all her vaccines.

      Breed: Pomeranian-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Mixed. Bailey is best described as a dapper gentleman. He is mostly calm and quiet and is just looking for a soft spot to lay his head and a friend to relax with. When he first came to our rescue, this mellow guy had just lost his owner of 14 years and ended up in a shelter. He was adopted but, through no fault of his own, he has now come back into our care. So now Bailey needs a new person with whom to spend his days. In spite of his age, he's still in pretty great shape and would make a terrific partner for someone who likes to take walks. He is getting along fine with his canine foster family and is friendly toward all people but he would probably do best in a slightly quieter home without any large pushy dogs or small children. If you would like to add Bailey to your family, please fill out an application at www.sadiesrescue.org Bailey may also qualify for our "senior to senior" program so if you are a senior looking to adopt, please ask us about that option. Baily is neutered, microchipped, and up to date with his vaccinations.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (medium coat). Meet K.C, she is a local girl that needed out of the shelter. K.C. is originally from California but made the trip across the country in hopes of finding a home. While at the SPCA she just wasn't doing well so Sadie's stepped up and she is now in a foster home.

She is very shy of new things and new people and will hide when scared, but does come out in her own time. K.C would do best in a calm home without a lot of comotion. She is more comfortable around smaller dogs and she enjoys cats. She will make her self right at home by hoping up on the couch and would love a human to sleep in bed with. K.C is spayed, microchipped, and up to date with vaccinations. Apply for K.C today at www.sadiesrescue.org

Scarlet is just about 2 years old, 38 lbs and fairly active. She loves playing with toys and is great on leash. She particularly loves long hikes, so she can use that hound nose! She has met lots of dogs, and is social but needs time to warm up to new friends. She is house-trained, and really loves sleeping or just hanging out in her crate. Scarlet would do best in a home without small children, because she can be fearful around them. However, she would love to go to a home with another active, social dog. She is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and is also micro-chipped. Apply to adopt this great girl today by filling out at application at www.sadiesrescue.org

      Breed: Borador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Hi people, I'm Lyla! I'm 10 months old and I still have all my puppy energy (or maybe that's my border collie energy, we're not really sure). Since I have lots of energy, I LOVE to go to doggie day care with my foster brother. When we're not at doggie day care we're wrestling in the house or running around in the yard. I like to get all my energy out so I can cuddle with you on the couch before sleeping through the night with you in the human bed. After I warm up to you, I love everyone I meet! But I run fast and jump kind of high, so I might be too much for small kids. I have a little bit of anxiety in the crate, but that's just because I love to be with my humans so much, I don't want you to leave me behind! When I have to stay home alone I get a frozen peanut butter bone in my crate to keep me busy. I love peanut butter bones! I would love to have a four legged sibling so we can play like my foster brother plays with me now. We have so much fun together! I briefly met a cat the other day and she really didn't interest me much. Lyla is up to date on vaccinations, spayed and on flea and heartworm prevention. Lyla is available for adoption at www.sadiesrescue.org.

      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed. Hi my name is Betty! I am about 14 years old but I feel 9! Actually the vet says I look really good for a lady my age. I am looking for my perfect retirement home, someplace to relax by the heater in a nice cozy bed, lay on your lap while you rub my ears and I fall asleep! Oh, and also someone to serve me meals and give me snacks. I am temporarily living in a foster home with my foster mom and canine and feline foster siblings; I am good with other dogs and cats. I love them all but want a bed of my own and people of my own! Because of my age I do have cataracts and can't see very well, but this doesn't bother me one bit... just give me a few days and I'll have the layout of your house down pat. I am house trained, but do need to go outside frequently (my bladder isn't what it used to be). Please send my foster mom an application! Any questions about me, you can email rescuemesadie@gmail.com and she will be more than happy to talk to you. I am up to date on vaccines, deworming, flea prevention, and heart worm testing and prevention. I also had a recent teeth cleaning and extractions. Apply to adopt at www.sadiesrescue.org
