Saeko is retired from breeding and has some fears.  She is getting used to living in a home.  She is more social than most dogs retired from breeding situations.  She does not act like a 7 yo dog – she is a girl who likes to have fun! She loves toys, she loves running in the yard, she loves people, and she loves her quiet time. She would love training – and is very treat friendly! Sweet girl. She wakes up at dawn though! And barks until someone lets her out.

She is on medication for anxiety which should be continued.  She needs a patient family that will understand she needs time to continue to come out of her shell.

Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history and as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
