Say hello to sweet SAGE! She has a lovely medium length coat and is about 8 years old. Her favorite thing is to be with her person. She will follow her foster mom around the house and then sit patiently and wait for some attention, then settle down on the floor or dog bed near by. SAGE was a bit shy when she first came to her foster home and needed a little extra time to adjust to the new surroundings, but she is coming around very nicely and has started being playful and interacting with the other dogs more. She needs a soft touch and a little extra patience and she will reward you with her unwavering loyalty and devotion. 

SAGE gets along well with dogs and cats alike. She was a bit overly curious about the cats at first but has gotten used to them now and would do fine in a house with cats as long as the cats are dog savvy. SAGE is very praise motivated and wants nothing more than to please her person. She has some basic commands and will come when called. She is working on her leash manners and enjoys her daily walks. She loads up in the car and rides fine. She is potty/crate trained too. 

SAGE is calm and well mannered and would do great in a home where she can get lots of attention and build her confidence. She is a truly good hearted girl who will make a wonderful and loving companion. 

SAGE is micro-chipped, spayed, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations.

SAGE is being fostered in Folsom in Sacramento County, California.
