Saphira – Adopted

Saphira – Adopted

Saphira was a bottle baby that came into the rescue at about 4 weeks of age.  This beautiful pup had sadly been dumped and left in a field to fend for herself.  Because of this, she has shown some aggression with her food, but has responded very well to constant training.  With her people fosters, progression is close to immediate.  With puppy/dog friends, it has taken a little more time.  She will need a patient family, and to know who her pack leader is (people and any animal friends alike) or she will try and rule the roost!  Please don’t let this deter you though, Saphira is an extremely loving pup who wants to cuddle next to you in bed and go everywhere you go!  She loves to give kisses and belly scratches are an absolute must!  She would benefit from either a doggie door (which she has done extremely well with) or possibly even some bell training for when she needs to go potty.  95% of the time she is going to go to the back door, but it’s going to be a very quick pit stop….unless you are watching her closely, you may miss it and have a potty in your floor.  She is very quiet for the most part…. but when playing, her growls come out!  This is all play and nothing to be worried about….it’s how she shows that she’s having a good time! Toys that she can chew on are a must, but please remember to keep her separate from any furry friends at first with any food chews until you feel confident about her training….however we still want to keep your furniture looking as beautiful as always, so redirection and chew toys are a must (any toy that can be chewed on is great).  A slow introduction to any feline housemates is highly recommended.  Honestly, there’s nothing that I don’t love about this little girl….if you’re willing to put in a little time for training and be patient with her progress, I guarantee that you will feel so rewarded with having this beauty in your family.   I know I do!
