A volunteer writes: Affectionate and mellow, Sasha’s main qualities according to her former owner who lost her home… Sasha(13 year old and owned since age 3 month) counts many more wonderful attributes under her sleeve.. She lived in harmony with many children …and dogs….and cats of all ages and was playful with them. Here at the care center, Sasha goes with the flow. She is a debonair ” little ” dog who is glad to be in company and gives you her best smile when she sees that you seem to care for her. She mingles with other little dogs in playgroups, uneventfully. Sasha is a slow walker, climbs stairs, does her business on the way but pants due to her weight. A proper diet and more walks will certainly help her to slim down and protect her heart. Sweet Sasha is an elderly but in loving and caring hands will make a new owner blessed to have her for the rest of her golden years. Sasha is at the Manhattan Care Center.
PROFILE: 06/24/17 12:27
Sasha is a brown and white, 13 year old dog that was surrendered today by her owner due to living in a shelter. She has had her since she was 3 months old and bought her off the street. She has no known health problems and hasn’t been to the vet in the past 5 years.
Around strangers she is described as friendly and just sits there. She is known to spent time with children of all ages from newborn and up and is affectionate. She plays gentle with childern and adults. She has also spent time around dogs of all ages and it playful with them. She doesn’t mind cats and has spent time in her life with them. She has never bitten another animal or person.
She’s fine inside but after 4 hours or so she will pee inside. When fireworks or loud noises go off she isn’t bothered by them. She is not bother by people touching her food while eating or chewing on a bone and was describe to do nothing when it happens, just stops eating. She enjoys baths and being brushed but was unaware of information on nails. When unfamiliar people approach she’ll tense up but will still say hello.
For a New Family to Know:
She’s affection playful and mellow which was the previous owner’s favorite thing about her. She enjoys a game of tug every once in a while. While she’s inside she’ll mainly stay in her crate, which is where she enjoys sleeping at night. She previously had house food and dog food mixed. For the most part she’s house-trained but after a few hours if you don’t let her out when she cries she will have an accident. She knows a few commands including “come, stay and stop”. Off the leash she will also stay close by your side.
