Adoptable pet: Sasha the shepherd mix

Sasha is a shepherd mix who is waiting with 4 Luv of Dog Rescue in Fargo for a forever home.

09/19/10 update: Sasha is still waiting for a forever home. Can you help?

This dog loves to jump up and give anyone kisses! She loves all people, and everyone comments about her tail that never quits wagging. Sasha is really optimistic despite all she’s been through. She has not given up on humans.

Sasha has been waiting for a home for a long time. She was adopted for a few weeks in October but then she was returned. From the rescue, I take her for runs and started taking her to a beginning obedience class.

Someone willing to train and walk Sasha on a daily basis would make a great home for her. She is eager to learn and only wants to make people happy. She already knows sit, stay and down. She often looks up at me with her tail wagging as if to say, “I’m being a good dog, right?”

Sasha responds well to heeling when someone gives her the leadership she needs. She is very strong and will pull on the leash if she can get away with it. I started using a prong collar with her and she responds very well to it. She tries to run up to any dog, which doesn’t always go well if the dog doesn’t match her energy. Sasha also has an instinct to chase small animals like squirrels so she needs to be supervised around other pets.

Like any dog that’s living in a shelter, Sasha has lots of pent-up energy. But after I take her for a run she begins to calm down. Imagine how good she would be if someone took her for a long walk every day!

A great thing about Sasha is how quiet and still she is in the car. When I took her to obedience class she rode in a kennel in the back and waited patiently. She is obviously kennel trained and jumps right in.

Sasha is a good girl and deserves a home. You can read more about Sasha on her profile at 4 Luv of Dog. If you would like more information about Sasha or are interested in adopting or fostering her, send me an email at Also, check out my other listed dogs for adoption in Fargo.

I might feature a local homeless dog on my blog every week or month. What do you think of that idea?
