Paris is a playful, smart, and extremely sociable girl. She wants to be a part of everything her family is doing. Paris loves walks, extended play / training sessions at home, and spending 1-2 days a week at doggie day care playing with other dogs. She is such a funny girl and her cheeky antics will provide you with endless entertainment. She loves attention and can be very affectionate. She will lean on you and give you kisses as you pet her and give her belly rubs. She loves to hang out on the couch with you. She likes baths and can sleep in a crate overnight.
Paris is a fast learner! She is house trained, knows how to sit, lay down, give paw, give other paw, spin in a circle, and go to her crate. She is getting better every day at stay, come, and leave it. She is also working on her leash training and some collar sensitivity. Paris will thrive in an active and routine oriented environment with daily meaningful mental stimulation and physical activity, balanced with relaxation time. She will need a family with lots of patience and time to bond with her through daily training sessions, and who will love her more than they love their stuff! Her destructive tendencies are exacerbated by boredom and frustration, and are alleviated by three to four 20-30 minute positive reinforcement training sessions throughout the day and/or a full day at doggie day care.
A fully fenced (6 ft) yard with lots of space for her to run and sniff and dig while supervised would also be perfect for when she needs to burn off some extra energy. Paris has shown huge improvements with her behavior since coming to Sadie’s as a stray from Texas, but it is important that all members of her forever home are prepared to commit to continuing this journey with her with patience and love. She does have an existing hip injury which does not slow her down at all, but it does need to be taken into consideration with exercise and training demands, and will likely need further medical intervention as she gets older. We believe Paris would likely do best in a home with adults or older children only. To help her flourish and bond with her new family, we suggest pursuing a formal positive reinforcement training program with her, which is why a $50 training fee is being charged in addition to her adoption fee. After Paris has successfully completed a training course, proof of completion can be sent to Sadie's and a refund of the $50 will be sent back to you.
If you think Paris would be the perfect addition to your family, please complete an adoption application found under the Adopt menu. www.sadiesrescue.org/animals/list
Please keep in mind there are many factors to consider when choosing the right match for a dog, so an application cannot guarantee adoption. Nor do we work on a "first come first served" basis, but rather strive to find the best match for the personality of each dog. As part of our adoption process, references both personal and veterinarian will be checked. Sadie's also requires a home visit before we adopt any of our dogs out; therefore we only adopt to our local WNY region. Please only apply if you are serious about adopting as placing each foster dog in the best home takes time and effort by our volunteers.
