A very sweet and very quiet young lady, Sabine is quite a flirt as well, especially when she met a doggie boy with long hair. That's when she left her quiet self behind and did everything she cou
Ms. Sabine, a new arrival at Rescue, has a favorite song: 'Hey, look me over, lend me an ear' (music and lyrics by Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh). How do we know? You should have seen her behavior at a recent adoption event. First of all, she was in her doggie kennel next to two other dogs - Jared and Jorie - who are German shepherd wannabes. Sabine, who is very sweet and very cute, was very quiet the entire day until Jorie, the girl dog, left her kennel and left behind Jared, the boy dog with long hair. All of a sudden, a new Sabine emerged and took the spotlight. She started to do circles in the crate, flirting like you couldn't believe!!! She tried and tried everything in the doggie book of flirting to get Jared's attention. Play bow, cute little tiny barks, jumping up and down in her crate, exposing her doggie belly - there was no end to her antics. And in a crate! There was Jared who didn't appear to give a flying hoot, looking at her and turning his head the other way. Not to be deterred, Sabine didn't stop, especially because she knows some boys can play hard to get. It was finally time for Miss Sabine and Jared to leave their crates and take a walk. Ms. Sabine tried to be more lady like, prancing around him and trying to give him her cutest doggie smile. We guess Jared just gave up because he soon acknowledged her presence and gave her the time of day - even though she was more into him than he was into her! Anyway, Ms. Sabine just loves the last line of her favorite song, 'And look out, world, here I come!' Update 4/18/10 We always love when we can add an update from a foster family so here's some more news about Sabine. Her foster mom writes that she is a very sweet girl with cute puppy playfulness. Let's elaborate on the word 'puppy'. Take a look at her paws. There's a lot of growing yet to fit into them. And her adorable tipped ear just adds to her puppy charm. Now let's elaborate on the word 'playfulness'. Sabine LOVES to play! How do you know that she wants to play? She puts her paw on your foot. If you ignore her, she moves her paw to your lap. Yes, it's time to play! Her foster mom knows that Sabine has had some training - 'sit' and 'paw', for example. After only three tries on her first day in her foster home, she learned 'kennel'. She loves going into her kennel, especially when there is a treat waiting for her. Sabine knows how to fetch and retrieve her ball. Believe it or not, that doesn't always happen with a new dog in Rescue because often they've never had the opportunity before to play. Many just don't have a clue as to what a ball is or what should be done when it is thrown into the air. If she's not playing or resting in her kennel, Sabine is waiting to go for a ride in the car. She's fantastic! If you are interested in meeting Sabine, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't forget to fill out our online application. The minimum adoption donation ranges from $400 to $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. Prior to placement, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are usually microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis. Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
