WHMP Heavy Petting Dakin Pet of the Week

Meet Sadie-Female/7 years old. My weight: about 74 lbs/Basset Hound, available for adoption at the Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society in Springfield.

Suggested kids age range: 13 and up
Dogs: yes after meet
Cats: No
Exercise: Moderate (short frequent aerobic walks to shed some pounds)

I’m an older gal that has put some pounds on. I am looking for a family that will take me for walks, watch my diet and encourage me to increase my activity with some good fun exercise. I am sensitive in certain areas of my body and not comfortable with hugs; however, I will lean into a lap and look lovingly into your eyes with my soft sweet eyes.  If you think I might be the dog for you, please come and meet me in person at Dakin in Springfield.

Sadie was surrendered to Dakin because her family didn’t have time for her.  She is currently being treated for infections in both ears and a urinary tract infection.  That should make her feel much more comfortable.
