Pets of the Week: Sweet Sarah & Pinky
Are You a "Big Dog" person, living in a smaller space? Sweet Sarah could be the ideal match for you! She is calm, quiet and low key - a very soulful girl. Sweet Sarah is about 6 years old and weighs about 50 pounds. She is petite but can keep up with active people. She is an interesting mix of Heeler and Shar Pei with a little Yellow Lab; she has the best qualities of each breed.
She is sweetness personified, hence, the name. She walks great on leash and has received her Certificate of Graduation from the Hollywood Dog Training School Basic Obedience Course - congratulations, Sarah! Her new adopter will be able to take her to the facility in NoHo for free lessons forever. Sarah is a low maintenance dog and is very eager to be in stable surroundings. Sarah has a foster home, but is anxious to find her permanent family. Sarah's foster mom says, “Sarah is a delightful dog, very obedient , eager to please, excellent on the leash, and completely house trained. She attaches herself quite quickly to her 'person' and is very loyal. She does well while sitting quietly at an outdoor cafe and is not bothered by other dogs or people passing by. I take her for a 45 to 60 minute walk once a day, which she enjoys, however, she is also quite happy to be at home and lounge; she doesn't need a lot of exercise.”
Sarah may be shy at first, but give her a week or two and she will be your very best friend. Sarah has come a long way and has been waiting some time now for her forever home. She is good with other dogs, preferably a more mellow, non-dominant dog, but she also loved her best doggie friend who was a young, active, male Golden Retriever. Sarah is also GREAT with cats and loves to cuddle with them in bed. With a little time and patience, the Bill Foundation believes Sarah will do well with children as well. Sarah is a sensitive girl who doesn't ask for much. She just wants love, understanding and TLC, but she definitely would not complain if she had a house with doggy and kitty friends. Sarah is generally an easy going dog who just needs a break. Please consider taking this affectionate little girl into your life. Her darling freckled face will warm your heart!
Sweet Sarah will be at the Bill Foundation adoption event at the Healthy Spot pet supply store from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. this Sunday June 3rd, along with other available dogs. Please contact the Bill Foundation for more information about Sarah.
The Bill Foundation rescues primarily dogs and sometimes cats from the Los Angeles City Shelter System and places them into loving homes.
Pinky was rescued by the Forgotten Animals of Los Angeles from the hills of Beverly Glen. Her human mom died and the family just opened all the doors in the house to let the cats go. Pinky is a sweetheart! She loves people and other cats. Pinky is a real charmer. She is two years old, FELV/FIV negative, fully inoculated, wormed, treated with Revolution and micro-chipped. For more information about adopting Pinky, visit the FALA website.
Forgotten Animals of Los Angeles is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to humane nurturing, neutering and finding loving homes for abandoned cats & kittens. Each animal receives a health check, is tested, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and dewormed prior to adoption. The tax-deductible donation adoption fee ensures the safety and welfare of the next abandoned cat or kitten in need.
