Sapphire ("Saffy" for short) is a Dachshund/Lab mix (called a Dachsador). Her beautiful dark sad eyes just draw you in. She has a nice black coat, long body and short legs. She is a very sweet dog who deserves to have a loving family. You can tell that this sudden change in her life has caused her great sadness.. She was given up to a local shelter for financial reasons. She did not do well in the shelter because she was scared of all the barking dogs so that is how we came to hear of her. Her previous owner had nothing but good things to say about Saffy. She can be kept loose in the house even on long days because she is housetrained and is not destructive in the house. She is also crate-trained but is not being crated in her foster home. She is well-behaved and good with other dogs and cats. She even played with the cat in her previous home. In true doxie fashion, she does love to chase squirrels so she must be kept on a leash or in a fenced yard when outside. She is carrying some extra weight and could probably lose 10 lbs or so. She needs an adopter who will stick to a diet and exercise plan and provide a loving home for this loyal lovely lady. One other thing, she loves to sleep in the big bed because she wants to be close to her family: human, canine and feline. Have I convinced you yet that Saffy is a great dog? We already love this dog! ****Applicant should be willing to drive to Ellicott City, Maryland (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Sapphire.****
