Not Quite Right & Finally Home

by Jen on February 22, 2011

Meet Sadie.


Sadie is an adopted dachshund/beagle mix. She was one unlucky pup (now recovering), and was surrendered 5 times before we brought her home to foster … and then she wiggled out a permanent spot in our home.


(former tagline:  All This & Adoptable Too)

During her many surrenders she developed a bad case of separation anxiety as well as a long list of other issues and phobias which we will most likely be working on for years to come. She may be crazy as a coconut and have a few screws loose, but she’s the most loving dog you’ll ever meet, and has proven that all hounds are not alike (she loves cats and is scared of rabbits). She’s also pretty stinking cute.
A few facts about Sadie:

Best friend:   Sierra – over twice her size, this lab/mastiff mix still isn’t a match for Sadie’s unquenchable thirst for fun.
Favorite Snack:   Prozac
Worst fear:   Everything.
Claim to fame:   Ate the book on Separation anxiety


Most expensive freak-out:   Eating the seat belts in the car
Favorite Color:   Orange
Weirdest habit:   The long, crazy stare
Cutest part:   Her feet
Favorite place to sleep:   in a pile. At the bottom. With blankets.
Favorite State:   Maine (or panic, depending)
Snores?   Most definitely.
Life goal:   To learn to enjoy ‘me time’ so that Mom and Dad can, too.


Tagline:  Not Quite Right

Sadie, I appreciate your bio, I live with a dog a lot like you. Crazy dogs need love too!

Also, we have the same couch!

They certainly do! Congrats for living with and loving your nut. You spend so much time and effort (and, yes, sweat and tears) on them, and then take a step back and realize that 1. you’ve got a pretty awesome dog and 2. you’re so much closer to them/more appreciative of them for the work that was put in. Sadie is the 12th foster dog we’ve had (the only one we’ve kept), and if you asked a year ago, I’d never have thought I’d have a dog yet, let alone a hound. And now, I wouldn’t have it any other way! Our 9-year old neighbor jokes that Sadie’s so cute, she gives us separation anxiety!

And that couch is excellent … perfectly sized to just squeeze in two humans between a cat and dog at full stretch …
