About Sadie

Rottweiler
Age: Adult
Sex: Female

**Owner Surrender Disclaimer: These are blind and visually impaired dogs that are living in homes, but their owners can no longer keep them. These dogs are with their owners, and are not in BDRA foster homes. We do our best to screen these dogs, but make no guarantees regarding the information posted.** 'Please know that as much as we wish we could, we are unable to help with transport.' Name: Sadie Age: 7 years old Breed: Rottweiler Sex: Female (confirmed spayed) Location: Owen County, KY Vet Info: Sadie is confirmed spayed. She is not up to date on vaccines and has not had a recent heartworm test. Sadie weighs about 50 - 60 pounds. She went blind about two years ago, but they are unable to take her to the vet due to overwhelming medical bills. Her owners tell us that she appears to be healthy other than her sight. Owner Info: Sadie is a beautiful girl whose owners are unable to keep her. He has serious health issues, and due to mounting bills and financial hardship, they had to sell their home and are moving in six weeks, so Sadie needs a new home before then. They've tried Facebook and contacting no-kill shelters, but have not had any luck. They've been advised to put Sadie down, but, 'We want her to go to someone who will care for her.' Sadie is an indoor dog who is crated, but will sometimes bark, howl or whine to get out. She is housebroken, but not leash trained. She's a smart girl and knows the commands, Sit, Come and No, and may try to get food left on the counter or into the trash if she isn't watched. Sadie is described as nervous. She is good with both men and women, but is more used to women. 'Sadie is very attached to my wife. She follows her around and listens to her more so than me. My wife is Sadie's caregiver. Sadie is affectionate with our adult son. She is ok with company when we are here.' They also gave us details on how she is with other dogs. 'She gets along with most other dogs unless they are fighting over food...Another dog was trying to get her food. Snapped at other but no broken skin.' Sadie is not good with cats, and her owners tell us that before she became blind, she killed outdoor cats. Sadie's owners want us to know what a special girl she is! 'She does not mind being brushed. She loves being petted and my wife kisses her head and rubs her ears a lot. Sadie relaxes and sighs when she does this.' They're hoping Sadie can have her second chance! Please contact os@blinddogrescue.com. Please note we will ask for a vet reference.
