Our beautiful little Miss Sassy was sadly returned to our care recently after 2 years in her home due to the illness of her owner so is looking for a new loving family. Sassy a small whippet x is named Sassy for a reason not only by name but by nature too!

Sassy is 6 years old and a girl who totally knows her own mind. She is fine to live with other dogs as long as they are male but is definitely the sort that wont take pushing around from another female dog in the home. Sassy has spent the last 2 years living with 2 very small terrier males and has gotten on with them well BUT she is not cat friendly. We do feel with someone around all or most of the time she would quiet happily live as an only dog as although she loves her human company she is also quiet a self contained and self confident little dog too.

Although Sassy is fine to meet children on a day to day level we feel a home with older teenage children would be best. At somepoint in her life Sassy has very obviously been subjected to rough handling so in certain situations caution needs to be taken or she may growl. For instance sofas etc if you wish to ask her to get off she most definitely needs asking and as with all dogs no attempts to take her collar and remove. Likewise with stolen items exchange and reward methods should always be used.

Sassy is spotlessly clean and fully housetrained, she is a dream to take out and about and she travels extremely well. In her home over the last 2 years she has attended many a public event as her old owner promoted horse competing and has been a joy to take along, totally undemanding and dealing with larger numbers of people and crowds. In fact she loved it.

Sassy is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed and is spayed and microchipped. She is currently back with us here in the kennels in Stoke on Trent but can be rehomed nationally subject to a successful homevisit and all members of the immediate family including any resident dogs being willing to travel to meet with her.
