Sassy Update!

Sassy is a totally different dog now! Sam taught her to play with toys so now we listen to a lot of squeeking. She has been groomed twice but it will take about a month for her hair to grow enough to get a Bichon look. The groomer had to cut her hair about 3/4" long because of the matts. The black "halos" around her eyes are the same on both sides. The photo makes them look goofy! She walks on a leash and loves to go everywhere Coop goes. She goes into stores and visits with everyone.

We drove to Hallettville, TX (14 hours away) to celebrate Christmas with our entire family. We spent one night in a motel both ways. Sassy behaved as though she had spent her life traveling. She played with everyone and laughed until I thought her mouth would be sore!

I can't begin to tell you how wonderful it feels to see a smiling little girl instead of that little creature we brough home.

I'm so happy that you posted this update. I think about her often and am glad that you have given her such a happy forever home.

Such a heartwarming story...and with a happy ending. Sassy made out just fine.

It is incredible how these dear dogs (and other creatures) can open their hearts and enjoy life after the neglect and abuse they have endured.

We have a rehome Border Collie who is delighted to be out of the kennel and living in a home plus getting treats (she had never taken food from a hand before) and two meals a day and lots of loving.

So glad you took a chance on Sassy. She will add tons of happiness to your life.
