SASSY LEIGH, a 10 year-old spayed Maltese/Terrier mix and weighs about 13 lbs. She had multiple surgeries (a mammary tumor and bladder stones removed, a hernia repaired) when she first came into the rescue but has recovered well. Completed heartworm treatment, so minimal activity till July, then, retest in Sept. Totally crate trained,will let you know when she needs to go out but due to bladder issues, needs to go out often. Gets along with adults, older children and other dogs, but no cats. VERY protective of her kennel and does not like dogs in her face. Can only be picked up certain way or she will snap at you. Don't let her age fool you, she LOVES car rides, playing fetch and tug-of-war. Needs to continue the special prescription urinary diet food for the rest of her life. She can slip out of collar easily, so needs harness when leash walking. Can be temperamental when it comes to her feet, so no small children. This little love is a trusting, sweet, 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. Visit website to complete application.

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.
