History

Sable’s mom left Sable with an adult daughter — then disappeared.  Sable had 4 puppies at the time and would not let anyone near them or her.  That put the daughter in a difficult spot, so she called Newport Animal Control to come pick up the lot of them.

Sable has been in residence at N.A.C. since March of 2018.  She has survived this long because the Manager, Lisa, took a particular liking to Sable and they bonded.  Lisa would have adopted Sable, except that the dog she already had did NOT like Sable.

Sable does get along with the staff at N.A.C. and they take her for walks several times a day, but she is hostile to strangers.  That has gotten worse the longer she’s been incarcerated at N.A.C.  Her chances of adoption are slim to none, and now they HAVE to do something with her … so Piney Mountain Foster took her in and will work at calming her down and socializing her.  Then perhaps one of the rescues that have turned her down because of aggression will reconsider and help her find a forever home.

Known Issues & Progress
