About Sassafras

Sassafras A220065 Sassafras is a 2 year old spayed female who came into the shelter on 8/24 as a stray. Handling 8/30: Toys 8/29: Handling 8/28: Handling 8/25: Handling video: Leash test: Sassafras was pretty unsure her first time out and the leash was her inner torture device. She was hesitant about following a stranger outside and any pressure from the leash made her flail around. It only took about 2 minutes for Sassafras to give her first frantic hug. When in doubt she hugs. Every day Sassy gets more comfortable with handling and now she happily trots her butt outside, leash and all. Sassafras is a playful girl, toys and the pool are her thing. Sometimes she even takes her non pool toys into the water to play. Sassafras allows handling all over, sits on command (with a little attitude on the side), and takes treats gently. Sometimes she jumps for attention or just to see what’s happening on the other side of the fence. She’s easy to cuddle with and gives kisses and allows her squishy cheeks to be smooched back.

Bo A219509 Bo is a 7 month old neutered male who came into the shelter on 8/16 as an owner surrender. Handling 8/26: Handling 8/25: Handling 8/25: Handling video: Bo is cute right! He’s also extremely smart which makes him a poor fit for shelter life. He’s easy to leash but immediately starts grabbing the leash. He’s bored and looking for a game to play anywhere he can. Bo already knows sit and is very food motivated. Within minutes, we had a system down to work on his attention jumping where he was sitting on sound alone. Smart boy! Bo also picked up fetch like a professional athlete! It’s hard to believe he’s so young. He loves attention and allowed handling all over and excelled with positive encouragement. The big but comes out when he gets frustrated though and his youthful inexperience shows. He uses his mouth to communicate, its not uncommon but can be misinterpreted by people. For that reason cute Bo can’t go into any home. He will need an experienced family that is 100% dedicated to ongoing training. Bo wants to learn and likes the work. You know the old saying idle paws are the devils workshop, well the saying is hands but the concept applies to puppies too. show less
