Meet Georgia and Sadie

Meet Georgia and Sadie

Meet Georgia (Gia) on the right, and Sadie, left. Michael Hicks and Jess Florek adopted Georgia from Save-a-Bull as a puppy and began fostering when she was about one year old. When she was three, they foster failed with Sadie who was about a year old at the time. They are the perfect match for each other and bonded immediately.

Georgia and Sadie have a big sister/little sister relationship. Georgia always looks after Sadie, and they love to snuggle up together and be close. And they are partners in crime: Georgia will distract Sadie, Sadie will react by barking at the window, and then Georgia will steal your food from the table!

They love the word ‘Grandma’ and car rides are the best; they lead to adventures, pup cones and training classes (Georgia likes high flying training classes like agility, Sadie is more of an “obedience” kind of girl).

Georgia and Sadie love the outdoors would stay outside all day on the summer baking in the sun is if Mike and Jess let them. They also love walks, bike rides and camping.

They also like to help with house projects, especially painting – and come away with white noses and tails on a regular basis. They really enjoy spending time together in their newly remodeled kennel spaces in their very own room, complete with shiplap and a chandelier.

Georgia and Sadie are also tremendous foster siblings! They happily welcome foster dogs into the house and love puppies and dogs of all shapes and sizes. Sadie is the one that plays with them until they pass out, and Georgia is the one to make sure they follow the rules, don’t get too crazy, and know the boundaries.

“Georgia is a complete mommy’s girl. She is stubborn, smart, serious and very sensitive. Sadie is a derp. She wants to please so she loves obedience training. She has a silly playful personality that makes us smile” say Mike and Jess. “More than anything they demand attention and love, and we sure love to give it to them. “

 

Georgia and Sadie were photographed by Tangerine House of Design as part of our annual Save-a-Bull calendar fundraiser and contest. Watch for next year’s contest details coming soon!

Update on Oliver

Adopted January 2017

Dog’s former name Cesar

What are the best things about your dog?
Oliver is a big lazy cuddle monster, but he can also be super playful with his favorite toys. He makes the cutest grunting noises when he is hugged. He also will nibble my fingers when he wants to be pet.

Tells us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
He loves going for walks by the river and he thinks car rides are the bomb. As for training, he doesn’t mind it, but it can be a lot of work sometimes. During Obedience 1, he would last about 30 minutes, then it was hard to get him to do much.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Oliver has completed Obedience 1. He also has been on a couple of camping adventures, and he loves to visit his doggy friends.

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
Their initial reaction is a bit apprehensive because he is big, black, and bulky. Some people have made a point of walking around him when we are in public. However, once people give him a chance, they find out that he is the biggest love bug.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Bubba, Baby Bear, Olly and Olly Bear.
