Looks like: Border Collie Mix
Female, 10 years old (estimated), 51 pounds
Sweet Sasha has had a difficult past, but it's been a true joy watching her come out of her shell and show her true colors - that of a loyal, sweet and happy border collie mix. Once she has settled into your home, you will find this gentle girl right by your side (preferably on a soft doggie bed) eager for love and affection. This little lady is looking for a forever home where she can spend her years surrounded by love and support.

Sasha would do best in a calm, quiet home, which likely means that young children will not be a good fit. She does well with other calm dogs she meets while out and about and may thrive while living with such a 'furiend'. She has been living harmoniously with another large and more energetic dog in her foster home. She is very patient as her foster brother runs around her and she loves to lean against you to get attention. We have not yet seen Sasha interact with kitties.

Sasha had surgery in the past to remove mammary masses. She has healed well from this and her coat is growing in so gorgeous, shiny, and full! As she started feeling better, she found her voice and started to give a few barks to alert her family members of strangers. She did go through a period of nipping at strangers who approached her but has shown significant improvement on this; her foster mom still gives her room from strangers while on walks but if foster mom starts to talk with someone close by, Sasha now waits quietly. On her walks, sweet talk and a treat to redirect her attention has worked wonders for helping her feel safe while out and about. Sasha is looking for her next person/family with patience to continue to work with her on any lingering anxiety and help her gain confidence.

This persevering pup was found as a stray in Modesto and came to us from Stanislaus Animal Services so we could get her the medical care she needed.
