Meet Sally

Greetings Fur-less Beings! I hope you can help me because I'm on an important mission. What mission might that be, you ask? Well, I'd like to adopt my very own human! As a first-time adopter, I'm sure you'll want to know what my qualifications are so please allow me to tell you a little about myself. First, I am called Sally (and I am called Beautiful, Boo-tiful, and Bluetickfool by my foster mom depending upon which one of us is being silly at the moment). She tells me at least once a day how beautiful I am but then laughs at me because I have discovered these fascinating things called mirrors and like to gaze into them periodically. I am around five years old and weigh about sixty pounds. I'm very sweet, have big feet, and am sometimes a bit of an airhead, which is to say that I can get easily distracted but that's mostly because there are so many interesting things to learn about and new experiences to have and, frankly, I just like to take in the wonder of it all, I'm a little philosophical like that. When it comes to others of my kind, I am friendly, love to play, share my toys, and don't even get upset when my foster brother pretends he's a vacuum cleaner and eats all the kibble I drop on the floor at breakfast and supper. I like food, it's great stuff if you've never tried it. I have also recently learned what couches and beds are so my ideal human would have at least one of those and be willing to share. In the short time I've been staying in a foster home I have learned what "sit" means and my foster mom says I have been doing very well with housetraining. I usually walk fairly decently on a leash but sometimes I catch a scent that is super interesting and the fact of the matter is that I have four legs and you only have two so it's not like it's my fault that you can't keep up during these important investigations! Now, as far as what I'm looking for in an adoptable human... I'm not all that picky, I have liked every one I have met so far. I just don't want to be made to live outside in the cold anymore and want to spend my life with someone who has a good sense of humor, is patient and kind, knows how to dish out treats and will love me as much as I will love them. I'm down for car rides, too, if you know how to drive! If you think you may be the man or woman I'm looking for then don't waste another minute; get on that cell phone and let my friends at the Highland County Humane Society know that you're the one for me! I can't wait to meet you! ❤️ Sally's adoption includes her spay, 4dx HW test, DHLPP, Bordetella, Rabies, and a lifetime microchip. She has been treated for internal and external parasites and is on monthly heartworm prevention. She comes with some food, a new leash and collar and adoption kit. Also included in the adoption is 30 days of Pet First Pet Insurance, and Petco's Free Welcome to the Family Program. This program supports All New Pet Parents and offers Free resources, more than $650 in savings and 24/7 support. Adoption fee $175.00.  Apply online: https://www.highlandcountyhumanesociety.org/available-animals/ To contact us, please send an email or FB message to: Email: [email protected] Website: www.highlandcountyhumanesociety.org FaceBook: www.facebook.com/HighlandHumane HCHS is 100% foster and volunteer based (no staff, no employees).
