"Sadie is a 2.5-year-old Blue Lacy female. I had a lot of issues with her as a puppy. She developed aggression issues because she did not have an outlet for her intense working dog drive. Today she hunts hogs and does agility. Lots of exercise, focused training and strong leadership have turned her into a balanced dog." Photo courtesy of Julie Neumann, National Lacy Dog Association

Sadie Jackson the Ori Pei at 2 months old
"Sadie the AKC certified Weimaraner at 2 years old is a very energetic, loving, loyal dog. Her favorite game is to play fetch; I get tired of throwing the ball before she even starts getting winded. She isn’t a big fan of gunshots, but I didn't buy her to hunt so were OK with that. She has a bad habit of chewing things up when we don't pay enough attention to her or don't run her enough. When properly exercised, though she is the biggest lover and just loves to lie with you on the couch. She is a VERY protective dog when it comes to my son Dylan who is 14 months. If he fusses she is at his side until he is settled down. They love to play with each other. She lies on the floor and he crawls and climbs on her, she raises her head and just lies down with a look of “hurry and get this over already.” She will be chewing on a rawhide and my son will walk over to her and pull it out of her mouth; she does not resist, just gets this sad look on her face and looks over at us like, “make him give it back.” She is the runt of her litter, but has the biggest heart of them all. She is a wonderful addition to our family and we couldn't imagine life without her."

Sadie the Boxer sat like this for 10 or 15 minutes. Every once in a while she likes to sit like this. It usually means she is not very happy about something. I think this time she was upset because Rosie, her sister, was taking up just about the whole couch! ;-)
Sadie, a Bassugg (Basset Hound / Pug hybrid) at 5 month old—"He is an extremely smart dog. Sadie is very lovable but also very independent."
Sadie the Affen Spaniel at 1 year old—"Sadie is a very loving dog. At a young age, she showed a very energetic and intelligent disposition and was easy to train. Her grooming requirements are similar to that of a Cocker Spaniel. Her size is smaller than a normal Cocker Spaniel. She does well in crating situations but is more receptive to a teaching lead in which the leash is tied to you and to the dog, keeping her by your side as you go through your daily routine."
Sadie the 4-month-old Ratshi Terrier (Rat Terrier / Shih Tzu mix)—her owner says, "She is the sweetest and smartest dog. She is full of energy and very happy, and a very fast learner."

Sadie the Border Heeler (Border Collie / Australian Cattle Dog mix) at 2 years old
"This is our girl, Sadie. She is a Jack Chi (Jack Russell / Chihuahua mix). She is 5 years old and weighs 27 pounds. She obeys well, walks on the leash with absolutely no tugging. She follows commands very well and is extremely well behaved. She is a quiet dog; never, never barks just to be barking. However, she will aggressively alert when someone approaches the home or the car while we are occupying them. She has never chewed on the furniture or anything in the home. She loves adults and children. Sadie is great about letting us know if she needs to go out to relieve her and then only goes to a designated area, not just anywhere in the yard. She alerts us if her water or food is becoming low. If she is done playing with a toy she brings it to us and will indicate which toy she would like to replace it with. We really find this amusing because she just never has more than one out at any given time. Sadie is high energy and loves to play. She could play fetch all day but patiently waits by your side when you are busy and not available to play. She does shed and needs to be brushed daily. She loves rabbits and squirrels; she will stand and point when she comes upon them, if they run she will pursue them. If they are within 100 feet of her and they have 50 feet to go to get to safety she has the speed to catch them. No one I know can believe how quick she is for a small dog. Fortunately she stops when I tell her to. On the leash she is no problem. She does not like other dogs or people whom she does not know or who we have not acknowledged to approach her back side. She will act aggressive if they do. My parents had a neighbor’s full-grown Rottweiler come into their yard and approach us in an aggressive manner and Sadie immediately went offensive. I was totally shocked because she is so peaceful and quiet. She stood her ground and the Rottweiler, which outweighed her by 75 to 100 pounds, put his tail between his legs and left the area. Overall, Sadie is a Lady!"

Sadie Mae the Bluetick Coonhound
"This is Sadie, a chocolate Lab who's three years old in this photo. Her amber-colored eyes are her most prominent feature...besides her tendency to eat any food in sight!"
"Sadie the Pit Bull Terrier as a puppy. Rest in Peace, Sadie! She was a great dog. It's amazing how much personality a dog can possess. She was timid and sweet. Also a huge dog park fan! She changed my parents’ and friends’ perspective on Pit Bulls and for that I will always be thankful!"
Sadie the Smooth Fox Terrier puppy at 3 months old. (It is considered a fault when the ears are perked, as this dog's ears are. Ears should fold forward, making V-shaped flaps).

"This is Sadie, a Toy Manchester Terrier. In England it is illegal to dock ears and tails, hence the reason she has a long tail and floppy ears."
This is Sadie, a Rottweiler / Shepherd mix that was adopted from a local pound. She had Parvo when she was adopted and spent the first week in the hospital (hence the patch on her right front leg). She is seen here on her first walk with her new owners. When these photos were taken she was about 6 months old. She has since put on 20 pounds in just two months!
"Our German Shorthair Pointer Sadie has been a major part of our family. She is shown here at 2 years old. When we go for drives she goes with (best dog for traveling). She loves to pheasant hunt...minute we get the guns ready she is sitting by the door waiting. She loves her walks, fetches balls (she tries to get 3 tennis balls in her mouth). She also bats around a tennis ball on the floor like a cat. We take her out in the country for long walks. This is her pride and joy. She loves to point at birds, bugs and anything that smaller than her. She loves to cuddle up with us in a blanket...okay she is spoiled. But she definitely knows she is loved. I do daycare in my home. All the kids love her and she can't wait for them to come every day!"
Sadie, a Pomapoo (Pomeranian / Poodle) at 10 months old—she had just gotten back from the groomer. What a cutie!
"This is Sadie. She is a Blue Heeler / Yellow Lab mix. She is about two years old in this picture. She can be very friendly but she can also act aggressive. When anyone comes to the door she barks like crazy, but she won’t bite unless someone breaks into the house. Despite her barking and crazy behavior she is a sweet dog. She doesn't like male humans as much as she likes female humans. Sadie is very athletic but doesn't compete in anything because she doesn't get along well with other dogs. She can’t stop barking at them. Eventually, she gets along with the dogs and will play with them. Sadie is an awesome dog!"
Sadie the Golden Retriever in her therapy dog vest—Sadie goes to hospitals and nursing homes to visit people and she loves her job. She is shown here at 1 ½ years old.
"These are pictures of my Old English Mastiff Sadie with my cat Jupe. I am sending this just to show how gentle these dogs really can be. These two are buddies. Sadie was bought from a breeder in Columbus, Ohio, and weighed in close to 170 lbs. on her last vet check-up. She is just over 2 years old in these pictures."
Sadie the Lab / American Staffordshire / Dingo mix, shown here at 3 months old.—"I got my dog Sadie from a guy down the street. He had the whole litter in a kennel with the mom being pinned up next to puppy's cage. When we first got her (at 3 months) she was not housebroken, was scared of other dogs, and especially scared of humans. At once we brought her to the leash-free 'puppy park' and within weeks she loved to play with all the puppies and little toy dogs. It wasn't until a month or two later that she felt comfortable playing with the bigger dog breeds."
"Her good habits are her behavior and obedience and her ability to learn new tricks and commands. She picks them up with ease. Bad habits would have to be peeing on mats/carpet in house and tracking dirt into the house ;). She also barks at walkers passing by our house, which I find annoying. She gets plenty of exercise. She runs around the yard all day, playing fetch and using the yard as a dog track, plus, she is taken to the dog park every other day and taken for walks/runs everyday."
"I grew up with a Lab / Shepherd mix and this dog is by far a lot more obedient and just as smart. She is more socialized with other dogs than my last and therefore loves to play with other dogs, truly amazing! I also was told my entire life that Pit bulls were vicious and horrific dogs, but it wasn't until I got my mixed Lab / Pit that I realized that they are truly a product of their owners and nothing else, just like every other breed."
