My Sasha is a 2 yr old Scottie Mix who weighs about 25 lbs. I'm pretty sure the half is Westie. She is smart, sassy, playful, cuddly, talkative and entertaining with natural instincts for hunting squirrel and grouse. She is very good on a leash when on main roads and good off leash in the woods and more rural areas. She minds very well when alone but not as well when other dogs around as she goes with the group. She is a sweetheart 95% of the time but not perfect. I believe she came from a puppy farm of sorts as she has anxiety and socialization issues, but has come a long way. She gets over stimulated in new situations so new people, new dogs, new places and that brings out her anxiety. She gets protective with people she bonds with so needs to learn the difference between affection and friendly vs danger and attacked. I originally got her as a companion to my 3 yr Yorkie mix but almost 2 yrs later they still do not get along well and she has become more of a bully with her size and personality differences so my Yorkie spends most of his time hiding from her. Along with that my job and life now takes me away from home more often including overnights and hard to find someone to watch both of them. My parents have been very accommodating so far but have 2 dogs of their own and that is becoming too much for them. I want to find her a home that can give her the time, training, patience and attention I am not able to provide. With some obedience and especially hunting training she would be an awesome dog. Due to her anxiety I would not recommend her to a family with young children. She loves being out in the woods. I live close to a main road and am able to have her off leash when I am working around the yard and she stays pretty close to me. If you are interested or would like more information please contact me and help me find my Sasha a home she deserves. She comes fully equipped including being spayed, microchipped and up to date on shots!

Request to Add a New Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, 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.
