Best Tricks:
Sadie can sit up on cue. She has learned that doing so will get her attention, so if you are ignoring her, up she'll go!! 98% of the time she'll get loved on because of it, too!!

Arrival Story:
We were walking through PetSmart to sign Casper up for puppy class and my husband found Sadie. She was being put up for adoption 'cuz her first set of people were getting divorced. We took one look at her and filled out the applications. We made arrangements to meet at the dog park to see how our other girls and she would get along. She drooled a LOT, but seemed indifferent to Teddi & Casper. The next day, the rescue worker was to come to our house for an inspection and she brought Sadie and her foster mom to see if she was still so drooly and nervous. NOPE! She made herself right at home and they let us keep her there and then!!!

We don't know much about Sadie. We say December 17th is her new birthday 'cuz that's the day she came to live with us. My husband was worried onthe day that we got Sadie because he thought Teddi & Casper would be too much for her. Sadie got up on the couch next to him, put her head on his chest and she let him know right then that she was planning on staying. He fell in love with her right there and then!! She loves to cuddle and thinks she's a lap dog!! You can not come to our house and sit down without Sadie trying to get into your lap (and that does not make my Mother-In-Law happy at all!!) Sadie didn't know how to play when we got her, and she drooled alot, but only when we at the dog park. Now she's the leader of the pack when we go hiking; she gets toys out of the toy box to play with; wrestles with her sisters and her momma and sometimes even instagates the Basset 500. She doesn't last too long, but at least she is participating. We were told by Sadie's foster mom that she would only walk for 3 blocks before sitting down. Today, Sadie goes hiking in the hills and takes LONG walks (we've done 5-miles quite a few times and even one 6-mile walk!!) and she is looking better than ever. The other day, my husband thought she had a sore on her leg. Upon further investigation, we discovered that she has a brown patch that is growing in. This was quite a surprise as she only has black and white on her body - until now, anyways!! I've always told my family that Sadie looks like she should wear pearls, so last year for her first Gotcha day, I bought her a pearl collar. You can see it in one of the pictures I just added. She loves them and loves the attention she gets when she is wearing them. Grandma says that she's going to look for a pair of clip on pearl earings for her to wear to special occasions. We'll see... We love you Sadie Jean and are VERY happy that you have chose us to be your new family!! We hope you stay with us for a LOT of years!!
