Hi, I'm Sadie! I am a 5-year-old boxer mix who loves to snuggle. I'm pretty outgoing but it takes me some time to totally relax in new situations.

I get along with other dogs but I'm not really into playing with them. I like to play with toys but my most favorite activity is watching and following my people around the house or yard. Although I am not that interested in taking walks, I am learning how to walk on a leash.

I get excited when new people arrive but I'm working on my manners and trying hard not to jump. I usually only make one jump on people but I guess once is too many times. I like snacks and I am quick to sit and wait for a treat.

Recently, I have joined in with the dog pack for yard squirrel duty. I like to alert my foster family when the UPS or mail person comes into our yard by giving a few barks tossed in with a howl.

I'm kennel and house-trained and I know sit, come, down, but I'm still struggling with stay. I just want to follow my people around and be ready for a snack or pet or lap to lay in.

I have some health history but I will leave that up to the humans to explain along with my adoption fee. Please email handsofhopegb@cox.net for more information.

I am spayed, UTD on vacc., microchipped, and on monthly flea/tick/hw preventatives. To apply to adopt visit www.handsofhoperescue.com/adoptapp
