Sapphire comes to us all the way from Juarez Mexico where she clearly had a tough life on the streets.  When we first agreed to take her, she was very underweight and we couldn’t even get her shots so she could could travel.  We made arraignments for her care while she gained weight, and after a few months she was finally healthy enough to travel.  She has a large hematoma on her chest which we had removed when she was spayed. The mass was sent in for additional testing.  Once we have the results we will share them.

While she has physically recovered from her time as a street dog, she is still mentally adjusting to the good life.  She LOVES to be pet.  More than anything.  She will follow you around and paw at you to remind you that she is beautiful and needs pets.  She does well with other dogs as long as there is not food involved.  Her foster is working with her on her resource guarding, however because of this, we feel a home with young children is not a good fit for her.  She is mostly house trained and crate trained.  She does pretty well on a leash, and is very food motivated which is always a bonus for training!
