Mutt of the Week: Sandee

Sandee’s story is all too common for Underdog Animal Rescue and Rehab. Sandee was found near Monument Valley last week by a tourist passing through. She won their heart during a quick stop at the visitor center and after checking with the staff to ensure she was a stray and not someone's dog, the tourists loaded her into the car and brought her to us.

Sandee has been here for just a couple days, but she’s made such a positive impression! Underdog staff love her personality. Sandee has shorter legs, a fluffy curled tail and the most adorable underbite. She's just 30 pounds and is the perfect pint size gal. She tolerates other dogs, but would ideally have a home to herself and her people. Because of this, we would love to put Sandee in a foster home until she finds an adopter.

Transitioning from the reservation to the Rescue Ranch to a forever home can be difficult and stressful for rescue dogs. Foster homes are important in making the transition easier and smoother. Underdog needs fosters who can commit to a minimum of two weeks and are located in Moab or Grand Junction. Fosters help us introduce rescue dogs to walking on a leash, good house behaviors, potty training and socialization and so much more. Fosters give Underdog insight into the dog's behavior and help us learn more about the right fit for their forever home. This summer, consider fostering an Underdog!

Underdog Animal Rescue and Rehab is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the estimated 250,000 stray companion animals on Native American reservations of the Southwest through transport, vet care and adoption services.
