09/22/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: If you’re like me, you’re a sucker for an older lady-dog with a sweet gray snout. Sydney is the absolute definition of CHILL. She is relaxed, likes to go for slow lazy walks (but mostly just to hang out by your side), and knows how to sit nicely for treats and take them ever-so-gently from your hand. Through no fault of her own, Sydney was surrendered by her family when they moved to housing that wouldn’t allow her to come with them– and it’s obvious that Sydney is from a home and not used to shelter life. She seems housetrained and she doesn’t love going back into her crate. Clearly this little lady is used to relaxed couch potato living. Please come and see her today– Sydney would love to come home with you and hang out!
