About Sasha

Akita mix
Age: Senior
Sex: Female

Sasha was born into a family of 11 years ago and, because of the wife's severe allergies, she has lived outside her whole life. She had shelter, but this is Southern Arizona. Recently the husband passed and the wife could no longer keep her. I planned on fostering her long-term and due to unforeseen life happens types of things I am no longer able to Foster her. He is extremely timid and very fearful. We went out for a walk one day a very short walk because I am currently using a cane and currently disabled, and we encountered two people. Sasha became so fearful that she began to tremble and her teeth chattered. It broke my heart! Presently I cannot give Sasha the type of nurturing and frequent walks outside that she needs. I can't just open the patio door and encourage her to go outside to use the bathroom because she's terrified she'll get left out there again and she just makes a beeline for the door. She's very loving, very gentle, she gets along with cats and other dogs. I've not seen her around children so I can't answer that. But she doesn't seem to mind whether it's a female or male human that she's around. I purchased five different types of two toys for her, including the safe non Rawhide type thing, multiple brands of treats, and she really doesn't engage with much of it at all. And she will chew a paper if she gets a little bored. And she had one accident in the house since I got here. She does need her nails trimmed and she is on the last couple of days of her antibiotics for an ear infection. She has an auricular hematoma that could use a surgical procedure, what from what I've been told. It doesn't seem to bother her but I don't know if it does or not. She is absolutely in love with the Blue Wilderness type dog food that I feed her and her coat is so much healthier than when I got her even just a week and a half ago. I was told she weighed about 60 pounds at the vet. She might wait a couple more pounds because she was a little bit thin when I got her. She's just an amazingly sweet dog. I will give you the balls and Leash and collar and whatever food I have if you adopt her. This is killing me but she needs much more than I can give her right now. I was unaware of these issues before I agreed to fostering her. Thank you for listening.
