Piney Mountain Foster Care

Canine Foster and Rescue

Sable Steele

Sable was a wild child: she’d had NO training but does get along with other dogs and likes people. In fact she craves attention from people. She just didn’t know how to relate to us properly. That’s why she’s here.

Sable came here from another foster situation where she was sharing a kennel with at least two other dogs. They were well cared for, but needed training. Before that, it is my understanding, that she was abandoned with her siblings as puppies.

Feeling at ease in the play yard.

Been reading too many Snoopy cartoons.
