Sasha came to Emotional Rescue 2 years ago after she had been shot and paralyzed.

This 3 year old terrier mix weighs about 35 pounds and is also a tripod. That doesn't slow her down and she's surprisingly speedy in her wheel chair.

She loves to play with her dog friends (Strange dogs worry her so she needs a calm introduction before deciding that they are friends) and she loves to go for nature walks (runs) on a trail in the woods.

Sasha requires a daily bath as she does not have control of her bathroom functions. Wearing diapers is not a solution for Sasha though she can wear one for an hour or so while she plays on the floor.

Sasha gets an exercise time twice a day (at least) in her wheels. She will need a fenced yard so she can have the freedom to run and explore to her heart's content. She is strongly bonded to her foster mom and we expect she'll feel the same way about a family she chooses to adopt.

Caring for Sasha is extremely rewarding and requires dedication and commitment. There is nothing like seeing her jump up and down, asking to be picked up when she knows it's time to get in her wheels. Sasha is a great communicator and she expresses her gratitude by looking right into your eyes and smiling.
