Sadie has been at Harvest Hills Animal Shelter in Fryeburg for a long, long time.
For the most part, since 2012 (!), although she was adopted and returned at some point during that time.
I met her last week and I can’t understand why this sweet girl is still waiting for her foreverhome.
Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_008aMy husband went with me to help with the photos, and we waited in the lobby while Sadie was brought out from her kennel.
She was immediately happy to see us and willingly accepted attention from both of us.
She was glad to be out and about and was ready for whatever was happening next.
Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_004aAs animal shelters go, Harvest Hills is a really nice place. They have many large, fenced yards with grass and trees, so volunteers can take the dogs out to play and enjoy the outdoors. We went into one of the yards with Sadie and we were told how well she listens and that she wouldn’t give us any trouble. And, how she would do anything for a treat. And that was all very true!
Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_006a Sadie was a wonderful subject and fun to be around. And she seemed to know basic obedience commands.
She’s VERY treat motivated. Here she is waiting patiently for a treat.

Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_010aI should mention that she cannot be around cats. No kitties! She is selective about dogs, so that would be on a case by case basis.
Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_007aShe was willing to do anything for us. Such a pretty girl. 
Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_009The shelter has her listed as a Pit Bull/ Lab mix. Her bio lists her at 8 years old, but we were told she was around 6,
so I’m not sure which is more accurate but she has a youthful vibe.
She’s got a playful energy, but she’s not going to need a ton of activity to be happy.
Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_014aShe’d be happy with a walk and a few ball tosses every day. Mostly she just wants some people and a home to call her own.
Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_002aHow can you look in these eyes and not fall in love?
Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_003aSadie loves toys, though I don’t think squeakers last very long around her.
Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_011She had some bursts of energy and running around after toys. It’s really fun to watch her run and play.
Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_013aIt was a very warm day and after about 45 minutes of posing interspersed with running and playing, she was ready to rest.
Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_015aIf you have a spot in your heart and home for a best friend like Sadie, she’d love to meet you.
Please contact Harvest Hills, (their phone number is 207-935-4358) and they can tell you more about this sweetie
and help figure out if she’s the right girl for you.
Maine_Adoptable_Dog_Sadie_016aPlease share this post to help Sadie finally find her forever family.

She’s been waiting an awfully long time.
