SASSY LEIGH IS SASSY INDEED. This little love is a trusting, sweet, feisty dog who just wants to play fetch and be loved! Sassy Leigh is a 10-year-old Maltese/terrier mix. Don't let her age or cataracts fool you. She's an active girl who loves car rides, balls and tug-of-war. Completed heartworm treatment and will retest in Sept. Sassy Leigh came to TDR with many medical needs and she has had multiple surgeries, but she is doing extremely well. She will need to remain on a prescription diet for urinary health for the rest of her life. In general, Sassy gets along well with people and dogs;(no cats), but she is particular about a few things and her wishes should be respected. For example: she doesn't like other dogs in her face. She's crate trained, loves her kennel and defends it jealously. (don't mess with my stuff!) Sassy needs to be picked up a certain way ... our foster parent will instruct you ... or she will snap. Because of her quirks, we recommend she not be adopted by a family with young children. Also, even though Sassy is leash trained, she loves to slip out of a collar, so a harness is a must. With a little patience and consistency, Sassy Leigh will become a delightful and quirky member of the family. Her fee is being sponsored by a TDR Angel, so her adoptive family can focus entirely on helping her through this latest transition. Available through Tired Dog Rescue, Gulfport, MS. Apply at

We at Tired Dog Rescue strive to find homes for dogs in need, build quality relationships with responsible owners, and preserve current dog-family homes by seeking solutions to financial, behavioral, and situational dog problems. We believe the lives of homeless, abandoned and abused dogs are just as precious as dogs that currently have a loving home. We believe that all dogs deserve a loving home despite their age, medical condition and/or disabilities. We provide whatever medical care is needed regardless of cost. All dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm negative and current on vaccinations before being placed.
