The newest Schultz family member..

Introducing Sadie Mae

Anyone that knows me, knows that I love dogs. Lee and I had discussed getting a puppy for Christmas, and that since we now have a house, we could have a dog. I had decided that I wanted to rescue a dog and adopt a dog who really needed a home. Lee was on board with this decision as well. The very next day, we found a cute dog who needed a home.

I was in Salina doing a show, when I got a phone call from Lee telling me about a little black dog who needed a home. This little dog has tons of energy, and we got her from the Roberts family(Our Brother in Laws parents). She is about a year and a half old, so she still has some puppy spunk in her. She is a sweetheart and loves to cuddle.

From what we can tell, she is a mix of a Lab retriever and a Australian Shephard. She is to smart, for her own good sometimes. When we are at work, we would put her in our laundry room so she couldn't get into trouble, one day she figured out how to get out of the room. She dug through our laundry and got one of Lee's sweatshirts, she carried it into our bedroom and just layed on it until Lee got home. She loves Lee.

She is not a morning dog! When I leave for work I try to get her to go out before I leave, but she just wants to sleep. She climbs onto our bed and lays in my spot, hoping that I wont pick her up to take her outside. She is always learning, and she is becoming an awesome dog. We can now trust her to leave her in the house and roam free when we leave, as long as she has a treat and a toy to play with.

She is so spoiled, and we love her so much. She has a permanent spot in our family. Everyone that meets her loves her, and she is such a pretty dog. We are still working on getting her trained to stay in the yard. All of our neighbors have dogs and she is eager to become friends, however she doesn't always see the cars coming up the road. She is starting to understand that she just cant take off anymore, and we will just keep working with her so she can stay safe.

We are so glad to have her in our family. She is such a great addition to our home, and is always excited for us to come home and play with her.
