Scottish Terrier Scottie
An adotable dog in Rockaway, NJ
UPDATE - Sadie has just come back into our rescue group because her adopters really worked too many hours to be able to properly work out a housebreaking schedule with her.
Sadie1 is a 2 year old, pretty, dainty, female, Scottish Terrier. She's on the small side, with more delicate features and build and is a silver brindle/ charcoal color. She resembles the old tyme scotties, like you might see in the old movies, smaller stature and a little taller, but a beauty with an angelic face.
Many of you may remember Sadie from last year when her urgent situation was all over facebook and the internet. She was in a NYC shelter and had a bite of unknown origin and no vaccine history, so was going to be euthanized. After difficult negotiations, we were able to secure her release to a certified rabies quarantine facility for 6 months, where we boarded her so she could have a chance at a good life when released.
Well, here it is, 6 months later, and Sadie was cleared to go by the NY dept of health and has already gotten her rabies vaccine!! She's in good health and spirits and has just been spayed! She's just been groomed too, so is feeling tops.
Sadie is not that good with other animals, especially larger dogs, but she's sweet, friendly, and loving with people. She has not had a good life prior to this, we were able to find out more about her past while investigating. She wasn't neglected, but just owned by young and irresponsible people who did not take her safety and well being into consideration. She was bitten in the neck in a fight with the other family dog who was trying to breed her and then dumped in a kill shelter to avoid paying for the vet care. Between the shelter and then our group, she got the vet care she needed to heal and bounced right back. You would never even know.
Sadie's idea home would be with someone who will take her for walks, has no other pets, and isn't in a very crowded area, as she will pull and bark when meeting up with other dogs on a leash. We are working with her on this, but it would be easier if her new home was an easy fit. This isn't uncommon for terriers, but we want applicants to be aware of everything we know about her.
We will do a better job in selecting a home for her this time. She's a great, pretty, young, lively and energetic girl and will make someone the love of their life!!
