It was a big week for adoptions at Orphans of the Storm®, so all of the dogs but one I met this week have already been adopted!

Sadie the six-year-old Boxer mix is a playful girl. In fact, the first thing she wants to do when she comes out of her kennel is play tug-of-war with the leash! Not everyone likes to play that game, though, so her new family might want to work on leash manners. When Sadie and I were walking around the woodland preserve, though, she was a polite walking companion who only pulled on occasion and otherwise enjoyed following her nose and stopping to sniff.

Can’t say no to a face like Sadie’s!

Sadie and I also spent some time in the off-leash run. Sadie explored in and around the bushes, always with her tiny stub of a tail wagging. She likes to be pet and would stop and stand next to me whenever I started to pet her. Sadie came from a home that was no longer able to care for her, so she has a lifetime of experience as a family pet and gets along with children. If you think Sadie might be the one for you, stop in soon to meet her!
