Sasha is a playful, affectionate and friendly dog. Her ideal day is snuggled up with her humans, binge watching the latest show on Netflix – at least until she falls asleep and starts snoring!

Sasha is an independent lady who has no problems being left alone during the day if she gets daily mental stimulation through training and exercise through play. She even puts herself to bed which makes her one in a million!

Sasha’s motivations in life are food and affection. As a result of this, Sasha has been easy to train and already knows sit, shake and wait. We’re also teaching her to go and stay on her mat, wait before going through doors and ‘leave it’ – which is great when you accidentally drop some food on the ground!

When growing up, Sasha didn’t have much to do so is now very stimulated when outside her home and yard. She does get stressed easily in new environments and has started some intensive training to help teach her how to calm herself down, walk next to you on the lead, and walk past a dog without reacting. We are only at the beginning of this process but she’s a very smart young lady and we have no doubt she’ll pick it up with gusto. In the meantime, any home for Sasha will need to be willing to commit to continuing the training and ideally will have previous experience in this area.

Sasha is very human-oriented and her playful and happy mannerisms are a delight to come home to after a hard day at work and can turn any day into a playful, fun day. Sasha often approaches people (even strangers) with a beautiful full body wag and immediate cuddles. When excited, she often jumps up on people so she would not be ideal in a home with small children. While she has only playful intentions, she is still undergoing training to get her out of this habit.

Sasha’s delightful nature makes it hard not to fall in love with her. If you let her onto the couch she’ll snuggle right up to you – and if not, she likes to keep your feet warm! Make no mistake, she knows how to give puppy dog eyes that would melt anyone’s heart.

Sasha’s ideal home would be an adult family where she can rule the roost as your only pet. If you are interested, please send me an email. Be warned, you may fall in love with her at first sight (we did)!
