Notes from Sage's caretakers:
Sage is a handsome young guy around four to five months of age. A stray in rural eastern Kentucky, we do not know his breed, parents or history but we do know he is 19 pounds of love, looking for a home to call his own. Sage is a normal young puppy - energetic, jumpy, mouthy, and opinionated. He loves to chat about it and always has an opinion - from whining at the vet to barking at big dogs that step on him. Sage enjoys being held , especially at the vet. He doesn't get car sick but he doesn't appreciate them either. Sage is a lively young guy who enjoys playing with toys and is learning people aren't chew toys.

Patsy, chihuahua mix
Patsy is an adorable female chihuahua puppy currently residing at Animal Care Society Inc.
Patsy's current caretakers say:
Patsy is the kind of dog who had a rough start at life. Her mother was hit by a car and a sibling was injured by another family dog and later passed away. She and her siblings were brought to ACS for a new start at life, and incredibly, their past has done nothing to hinder their spirits. This beautiful puppy has the sweet, companion traits of her Chihuahua mother. Although her father is a mystery, ACS staff-members are guessing Patsy has some Jack Russel Terrier in her. This would reflect her intelligence, as well as her tendency to get into trouble when left alone. All this puppy needs is the right amount of playtime, snuggle-time and training.
