ABOUT SASHA

Age: 8 years

Gender: Female

Weight: 60 lbs

Energy Level: Moderate

Overall Drive: High

Location: Eugene, Oregon

This girl may look old, but her mischievous spirit sure isn’t! Sasha is a very sweet girl whose boredom and curiosity will get her into surprising situations for her age. She’ll need heavy-duty toys and a quality crate– she’s already chewed through a welded kennel run and irritated her nose attempting to escape from an Impact Crate! She is crate-trained but has a hard time settling down if things are happening around her, so her crate should be in a dark, quiet room without other dogs.

Since she is older, her body can’t always keep up with her puppy-like mind! She will need frequent breaks during exercise and regular potty breaks every 3-4 hours. She’s good at letting you know if she needs to go, but she’ll occasionally fake it just to get more time outside! Her favorite thing to do is play fetch, but she can also be motivated by other toys, food, and praise, So far, she has been quite dog-selective but has taken a liking to her more submissive and gentle foster brother who she wrestles with; but their matches are always supervised because it can get intense! When meeting new people, Sasha is shy but friendly. She does need more practice around animals, other dogs, and people on things such as bikes and skateboards because they activate her prey drive. Besides some of her basic commands, she has good recall and a good loose leash walk. Indoors, she’s also working on her house manners and will need to be supervised until she learns that her realm does not include countertops and trash cans.

Sasha would do best in a home without any cats, small animals, small dogs, or young children. Her household would ideally almost always have someone around to hang around or play with, get regular potty breaks, and keep her out of trouble!
