Foster Home Feedback 

* A dog-savvy cat only (Cat that knows how to deal with dogs)

2/28/24 Foster Feedback: I’ve had Miss Sakari for 3 weeks now & what a fabulous girl! She has adjusted to home life very well with zero accidents! I have been free feeding her, which has been working well. She is a bit of a Velcro dog in that she sticks close to her humans. She sleeps with me like a champ, even letting me sleep in on weekends. Her absolute favorite activity is going on walks; I work from home, so this allows me to walk her 2-3 times a day. She also really loves being outside & has been sunning on the deck or running through the snow. She has been known to snack on (white) snow. Her favorite treats are kongs with frozen peanut butter, string cheese & hot dogs. She is not very keen on being kenneled; however, she will just hang out without getting into anything if I leave the house & do not kennel her. She has not touched anything other than her own toys & treats; what a good girl! She can at times get mouthy, however she will redirect immediately even without a toy distraction. She has excellent response to a "no" command. She has been cat tested & dog savvy cats only for her; she didn’t seem very interested unless the cat was active, so a cat who can fend off unwanted dog behavior would be a necessity. She is not real interested in the neighbor dogs & isn’t a fan of hyper or extremely barky dogs.  Sakari is dog friendly & does like to play but seems to prefer more mellow dog friends. She will bark at humans more than dogs. She needs a very strong hand on walks as bunnies & mice are extremely attractive & she will go after them with all her strength; this also makes her a flight risk, so a double leash (leash on both collar & harness) is recommended. She knows how her harness goes on & will help! Sakari has decided she enjoys being brushed! This is a good thing being she has a lot of fur! She seems to prefer chewy to crunchy snacks. Sakari likes to give hugs! She will jump on you to give you hugs & kisses but isn’t an excited jumper. She does get nervous & guarded with people coming into my home, but not aggressive; this is manageable by walking her around on a leash with cheese as a distraction for a few minutes until she realizes the new people are friends not foes. I also have had her meet new people outside & she is just fine, as she is going to other homes for a visit. Sakari is such a good girl! She will be a great addition to your home!

 

2/2/24 Volunteer Feedback: Sakari here! I am a short and stout bundle of love. Once I know you, you are my favorite people. I come running to greet you and give you hugs. I get a giant smile on my face, because I am so happy to see you. I've been told my smile is contagious.  
I know how to sit and shake. I have been told I'm an excellent walker who loves to sniff and take in the whole walk.

I love to snuggle right on top of you. I definitely think I'm a lap dog. My favorite pastimes are chewing on toys and playing fetch, I will bring the ball back, just not always to you. I'm working on that. 

It's hard not to fall in love with me. I'm a catch!
