Saachi’s back story: While we do not know the specific story behind Saachi being saved from the meat trade, we do know that she was rescued from a life full of suffering and sadness. If she had not been rescued, her life would have ended very badly. Second chance has a whole new meaning for a dog rescued from a life of abject loneliness, cruel treatment, and certain painful death. When you look in her eyes you may still see some anxiety but you will also see an overwhelming desire to be safe, to be loved. Saachi is now in the midst of a transformation. As she gains confidence and her true personality comes out, she becomes more of her real self every day.
Saachi now: Saachi has come a long way since her arrival to her foster home and adapting quite well to the new surroundings. She’s 100% housetrained and even whines a bit when she needs to go out. She is great on walks, and does really well on leash. Saachi had an old injury on her tongue which required surgery. Since having this problem fixed, she is pain free and has really come out of her shell.
She is very playful, loving, sweet and well-behaved. She does show some resource guarding behaviour around her food, so a home without children and a guardian that can continue to work with her would be ideal.
Saachi gets along quite well with the foster home’s resident dog but sometimes plays a bit rough so having a companion dog that is her size or larger might be beneficial. As she is such a quick learner, she may really enjoy agility training in the future.
“Saachi has definitely stolen our hearts with her quirkiness and sweet demise”. (foster family)
