Description: 
4/07/09: Poor Sandy is still looking for a place to call home. She is such a love. This girl will play with anyone (just supervise at first because she tends to tug on their ears or mouth their neck and some dogs don't appreciate that- she means well though, just doesn't know all the doggy social rules yet). Sandy wants attention and will listen well (she would do fantastic in a training class). She weighs about 50 pounds if we had to guess and is currently shedding her winter coat (she'll be gorgeous!). Sandy is just a playful young girl. She actually plays with dogs as small as 12-15 pounds (one is a puppy and one is Nick- also on this website) and is doing well. She is very friendly and LOVES to go on car rides. She also enjoys playing with toy stuffed animals. Sandy is shedding right now and will have a gorgeous new coat in no time! 3/17/09: Sandy is a sweetheart! She is really learning how to manage in a home. When left alone in the kitchen, she does not seem to get into things (counter surf, etc.). She is completely crate trained and will let you know when she has to go. Sandy loves to play with her other foster buddy, Clyde (also on this site) since Neeko was adopted. She will definitely need a playmate that can handle her high energy playstyle (she's not hyper, but enjoys romping and playing). Overall she is doing fantastic and is a very loving young girl. 2/20/09: Sandy is doing great. She hasn't had any accidents in well over a week. She will now take turns nicely with treat time (still would do best being fed seperately for now which is no problem) and loves to play with her 5 month old foster brother. Ideally, Sandy would love a home where she can get lots of attention. She enjoys being outside too. She did wonderfully with older children (9 and 15), but is a little too jumpy for smaller children. Check out the Blog for even more pictures of this adorable girl!2/11/09 - Good news for Sandy! She has gone to a foster home. She has also been spayed and is now ready for a rescue or forever home! Sandy is a love bug. She wags her whole body back and forth. She is working on crate training and learning basic manners. Sandy loves to be with you (not crazy about being crated, but has improved tremendously- will whine if you are in the room and try to get out, but eventually quits). She is not destructive when out of her crate and is working on housetraining. This girl is smart and it probably won't take her long. Sandy is working on manners at mealtime too (she likes to have her food first when other dogs are around, but is learning to take turns). Sandy is about 1 1/2 years old and will make a wonderful pet with a little guidance. She deserves a chance. She weighs 45 pounds. 1/24/09: Poor girl has been sitting at the vet's office for nearly 3 weeks (in a cage mind you). She is physically fine, but needs a home ASAP. It's not fair for her to live in a cage. Please foster this precious girl. She also needs some sponsors so that we can pay her bill! 01/06/09- Meet Sandy. Poor Sandy has had a rough time. She was hit by a car but the person who hit her called right a way so Sandy was able to get help quickly. Even though she was in pain she never stopped wagging her tail. Sandy is living at a vet's office right now and is in need of a home or foster home to recover. If interested in Sandy please call Joan at 870-739-5412 (between 1 and 5) or 870-739-1145.
