Special Criteria
Sanctuary Visit Required

Cassandra is a beautiful girl who loves her people. She can be shy with strangers, but once she gets comfortable she loves being petted by everyone. When she sees her friends, her whole body wiggles and her tail doesn't stop wagging. It doesn't take long to get to know her. The best way to win her over is to take her for a car ride. Car rides are Cassandra's favorite thing in the world. She sits in the passenger seat and tries to hold your hand during the whole ride, and she will smother you with kisses. You can also give her some treats, take her for a few walks, and she'll be your friend in no time. If you have treats, she'd also love to show you all the tricks and training cues she knows.
Born in 2009, Cassandra is still pretty active. At the Sanctuary, she does well with dogs her own size, but she does not do well with small dogs. Cassandra is a sensitive girl who can be nervous in new places, so she'll need a person or family who will be patient, go slowly with her and show her that new places are not so scary. She'll also need someone who will give her some time to get comfortable and learn the routine in a new home. She loves to go on walks or for a dip in her pool, but she is also content to hang out or take a nap in her crate. She'd also be more than happy to snuggle with you and give you lots of kisses. Cassandra has a generous sponsor who will pay for her adoption costs.
