MY NAME IS SASSY LEIGH, and let me tell you about 2020! Some people had a hard year, but 2020 turned out to be my year! With help from my friends at Tired Dog Rescue, I finally got the nerve to leave my neglectful, abusive relationship. First thing was first: a bath and cut! Then, I had a little surgery to fix the old girl parts put all those things back where they belong, remove the things that didn’t belong and get rid of any baby-making risks. I even had my smile fixed! Let me tell you ladies, I feel like a million bucks! Took 10 years off my looks. I am now on a special diet and I started a new exercise regime, running after balls! Did you know those things just keep flying when I bring them back! As it turns out, I now aspire to enter the Olympic tennis ball all-around!   

My Foster Mom and family have a pack of fur babies and older children. One big problem? They have a cat, and I hate her no reason, but I will bark at her endlessly if I catch her. It’s great because I get the rest of the pack all riled up and they all start in and we have a great time just barking our heads off. I am hoping my new house is a little more quiet. I love the kids and don’t mind the other dogs, but my Foster Mom only has two hands and I want the focus to be on me. I am Sassy, after all!

Lately it has been soooo boring, because my Foster Mom has me cooped up, telling me how I have to rest and not run around because of some stupid heartworm treatment. I had my last treatment and now six months of no ball chasing. What a drag! But I do want to be healthy when I get back on my training schedule!

Sassy is a terrier/Maltese mix and is about 10 years-old. She had a mammary tumor and bladder stones removed, a hernia repaired and was spayed. During her dental cleaning she also lost several teeth, but now her breath/kisses are minty fresh and she eats just fine. She will be on a special prescription urinary diet dog food the rest of her life. She is currently being treated for a heavy infestation of heartworms which will require bed rest until July and a follow up with our vet in September. She is 100% crate trained. (I believe she has spent most of her life caged.) She is about 75% house trained but she needs to go out often due to her bladder issues. She wears a little diaper when she is in carpeted rooms. This little lover is a trusting, sweet, Sassy feisty dog that just wants to be loved and play with balls! Available through Tired Dog Rescue, Gulfport, MS. Fee: Sponsored by a TDR angel. 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.
