Sadie in VA

Here is Sadie with her new family…
Meet Sadie, a 9-month old Blenheim puppy full of sass and sweetness. Sadie joined her previous owner from a breeder in Pennsylvania and, as most puppies do, Sadie required a lot of attention and training. They realized she needed more care than they could give with young children, and released her into the care of Cavalier Rescue USA.
Born February 7, 2022, Sadie will be on the smaller side (she’s currently at 9.5 pounds). She has been spayed and is up to date on vaccinations and has no signs of any heart or joint issues. When she came into foster care, she had Giardia and it has been difficult to get rid of (she most likely had it when she was with the breeder). She just finished her medication for the Giardia, however, and it will need to be re-checked around Thanksgiving.
A very sweet girl, Sadie has gained some much-needed confidence from her foster brother in meeting new people and dogs, she is very athletic (loves to chase balls, birds, leaves, etc.) and has developed quite the personality. She can be independent, but loves to cuddle, and always wants to know where you are. Sadies loves to play with all the toys and hang out on the patio barking “hello” at squirrels, people, and other dogs (she even watches TV!).
She is crate trained and happy to get into it because she knows she’ll get a treat – she is very food/treat motivated, which has made training easy, but she is still working on being fully house trained.
Sadie is a love bug who would be happiest in a forever home that gives her lots of attention and embraces her curiosity. She would be fine as the only dog or with another dog that is patient and OK with puppy energy. An ideal match for Sadie is someone who has experience with young dogs/puppies, who will focus on Sadie’s socialization and building her confidence through training. Someone who works from home or is able to bring Sadie along on adventures would be best. Children would be OK.
