Pet of the week - update
Two of the three dogs have been adopted. Daisy went to a loving home in Herford. Solider also has a new loving home in Palominas.
Sugar is currently in a foster home in Benson. Sugar is still up for adoption. Sugar is approximately one year old, female, Labrador/Stafford Shire Terrier (aka Pit Bull) mix. Sugar has fought hard for a chance at a forever home.
She came down with Parvo on her eighth day of impound. CCSO paid for Sugar's treatment.
The officer that impounded Sugar went to the shelter every day and treated her, even on the Officer's days off.
Sugar would do best in an active home.
She is house trained. Sugar was in foster care for five months. She did not get along with the smaller dog in the foster home, due to personality conflicts. Sugar did get along well with the two larger, dominant dogs in the home.
Sugar would do best with a larger, neutered dominant male dog. Sugar loves children. She is extremely smart and willing to please. She is engaging and obeys some commands such as, no, sit, down, off the porch, outside, and it's bed time. Sugar walks on a leash as well. Sugar travels extremely well. She will curl up on the front seat and keep you company! If Sugar is in the back seat, she lies down and enjoys the ride. Sugar is at the Benson Animal Shelter, phone number (520) 586-3600.
“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.”
― Milan Kundera
