Manchester Terrier, Mix

An adotable dog in Washington, DC

  • Young
  • Small
  • Female


Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home. For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/?page_id=64.

Sponsor a Dog! Sponsors help us provide additional medical treatment beyond basic vetting, and helps offset boarding costs when our foster homes are full. K-9 Lifesavers treats dogs with heartworm, parvo, upper respiratory infections, and special surgical procedures. Our adoption fees do not fully cover the additional vetting costs for these illnesses, and/or boarding. For more information on our Sponsor Program, visit: http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/?page_id=58.

Dog's Name: Sandi

Estimated Breed: Manchester Terrier mix

Approximate Age: 1-2 year

Approximate Weight: 32 lbs

Currently Living at: FOSTER HOME, but many of our pups are not so lucky. Please consider fostering.

Meet Sandi she is extremely friendly dog and has been the shelter/staff favorite in Tennesse. We are commited to finding her a wonderful home with someone who has time for lots of love. We are guessing Sandi was hit by a car and had a broken leg, we got Sandi all patched up and she is good as new! She loves to give those big puppy eyes and get the extra attention from her boo-boo. She is back to running full speed with her canine buddies and is looking for a loving home! Sandi is very smart and sweet. She loves going for long walks and loves to go to the dog park. She has some separation anxiety and would do best in a home with another dog. Also has some guarding issues with strangers in the house and yard, but never when she's off the property. She's with a foster family and they have made a huge improvement in her behavior regarding this. She's a really amazing dog and would love to be your new best friend!

Notes from the foster: She is a great dog! She would do well in a home with another small dog, and loves attention from her people. Sandi is house trained, crate trained and loves to go for walks. She is currently working on her leash skills. She is very gentle and needs time to build trust. She has done well with slow intruductions to children of all ages. Sandi is very smart and a quick learner. Sandi also does well off leash! Her foster has discovered that she loves to run in the park, but will come right back once you call her.

Your new pet may require a refresher in house-training but is likely crate-trained. K-9 Lifesavers recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and new owner.

The adoption fee for this dog is $295, which includes basic vetting, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, monthly flea/tick prevention, and transport costs. If interested in adopting, please download and complete an Adoption Application and email to Julie at [email protected] .
