My name is Sage, and I am incredibly sweet and playful girl who loves being outside and exploring new things! History We adopted Sage in April from a shelter in Tennessee where she had been for about 3 months after being surrendered by her previous owner. We don’t know much about her previous life, other than that she was surrendered. She is awesome, we love her, but without a fenced yard, we are unable to keep her safe (see details below). We hate to have to rehome her, she’s so wonderful, but want to be clear that it’s not her fault, we just don’t have the fenced yard situation that she requires for her safety. Personality Hi everyone! I’m such a…

My name is Megan, and I am sweet, easygoing, and insanely adorable! History I was surrendered to a high-kill shelter in Kentucky along with another senior dog– my people said they couldn’t take care of us anymore. He was named Charlie, and I was named Manson, which seemed to make everyone around us sad. We went to different rescues, so we’re both safe, but it was very sad to be given away and also to lose my best buddy. I was renamed Megan, which I think is lovely, and as I know my new name now very well, I want to keep it please! Personality I’m an incredibly sweet girl—friendly, easygoing, relaxed, and adorable.
