O Sadie Sue
Everyone at the fort was impressed this morning. Sadie Sue the silver/white Miniature Schnauzer had her first day and did well. Her owner explained to us that she may not make the cut. As a young dog she was socialized, played great with others. At around three years old Sadie was attacked quite brutally by a large dog and has been wary of other dogs since.
We were a bit unsure how Sadie would acclimate, if at all, but she thrived this morning. Despite the past incident she seemed to enjoy herself as more dogs arrived. It is wonderful to see a sort of rehabilitation and the calming/balancing effects the pack can sometimes have on a skittish dog. Sadie Sue is six years old, 20 pounds, very pretty and mature.
