From the Foster: 

Sassy is a people dog, and adores people of all ages. She loves snuggles more than anything, and would do best in a home where she gets to keep the lap warm on a regular basis! She does well with other dogs, but doesn't need to have another dog in her life to keep her happy. She has a lifelong heart condition that will require meds, but currently it doesn't affect her everyday life at all! 

She wants to be as adventurous as her family, and loves going for walks and car rides as long as she is with you!  She is  potty trained, but does not tell you when she needs to go. She sleeps through the night in bed with her foster parents,  and does not have accidents for up to 9 hours. She only has accidents when left alone for a few hours. She does not love the kennel but would likely be fine if left in an enclosed area with potty pads. She is kennel trained but does not love it.

Sassy has a grade 3/6 heart murmur and has been diagnosed with stage B2 Chronic Degenerative Valve Disease (CDVD). This indicates that Sassy's leaky heart valves have resulted in enlargement of the chambers on the left side of the heart. We have started her on meds for this which will be lifelong, and run about $70 per month.
