Sage “Help, Help,” cries the newest dog in the Shelter’s puppy compound, “Sage.”
She’s the taller, pretty black and tan dog in the foreground, begging to be petted. Sage was just put in with the other pups the day I came to take the photo and she was getting her “education” from the other residents who were not necessarily more dominant but who were exercising their authority because they’d been there longer. But Sage took things with a good attitude although she’s chomping at the bit to be adopted and have her very own family.
Sage was found all alone, wandering around Antroil and was brought into the Shelter by a good Samaritan who wanted to give her a chance at life. She’s about two months old and has been checked out by the vet, given her tests, worming, shots and will be sterilized when she’s old enough.
You may see Sage and the other healthy, social and well adjusted dogs at the Shelter on the Lagoen
Road, open Monday through Saturday, 9am to 1 pm and 3 to 5 pm. Tel. 717-4989.
