Sandy, the golden doodle came to the BC SPCA Surrey Branch as a result of a cruelty investigation. It was reported that Sandy was often left on her own in a crate too small for her for hours on end. Sandy was unable to stand up and/or turn around in the kennel.
After being removed from her inadequate living conditions, Sandy came into the shelter as one of the happiest dogs ever seen. She was so grateful for any attention and was quickly found a happy loving family to call her own.
Her new caregivers wrote to share an update and photos:
Just wanted to say hello and give you an update on Sandy the golden doodle. We have changed her name over to Sadie.
She has been a very good girl. She has found out that the bed and the couch is much more comfortable then a kennel. She is very good on her own just sleeps all day. She loves going on her walks. She is very good off the leash but is very nervous around other dogs. She is getting better though. I stopped by her old vet and found out that her birthday is November 12, 2006. She is just over 5 years old.
Since being stuck in a kennel we took her to the groomer and got her all trimmed up. She seems to be enjoying life now like a dog is supposed to. She loves car rides so she can hang her head out the window and smell the breeze. She is an awesome dog and I'm happy to have her in my life.
I have attached a few photos of her.
She wasn't at the shelter for long, but Sandy definately touched a lot of hearts with her sad story, but her happy ending makes it all better.
Happy trails Sadie!
