Loving pup Sassie looking for that special someone
Sassie is another of the pups who came into the world as one of a litter of nine born in one of the most inhospitable areas of Turkey.
She was born in a place called Nidge which is notorious for the cruelty the residents there show to dogs born to the streets.
Her mother Lady and all nine puppies were rescued and taken away from there by animal welfare volunteers.
They managed to find homes for all but four of the pups and Sassie is one of those.
It was then that Animal Friends of Turkey agreed to step in to help find Sassie and her three homeless siblings a safe, loving home of their own in the UK.
The pups are all of the Kangol-cross variety with the most dominant character trait of this famous Turkish shepherd dog breed being loyalty and devotion.
Like her siblings she shows the early signs of having this very same characteristic herself.
Pure bred Kangols grow into big dogs but this will not be the case for Sassie who is currently on the small side and short legged. We believe she is likely to grow into a small or slightly medium size when fully grown.
She is currently a blonde to fawn colour with typical black nose and she currently weighs around 15kg.
She is a very friendly girl who gets on well with cats and while she mixes well with other dogs she clearly prefers to be on her own.
We feel she could be homed with the right dog but she will actually be just fine as an only dog as she craves the attention and affection. She can be a little bit jealous at times when with other dogs.
Sassie is a bright girl and will definitely need a home where there is a commitment to give her good training. She is bright and is likely to take to that well.
She is currently six months old and she is now beginning the work to prepare her for her journey to the UK later this Summer. She will be approaching a year-old when she travels but will still be very much a puppy.
