Little did they know, that life as they knew it, would be changed forever, when in November 1998, a Gahanna, Ohio family agreed to foster a rescued afghan hound.   
When her career with a back yard breeder was over,  Sadie was surrendered to rescue.  Flea ridden and in poor health from her most recently weaned litter, 9 year old Sadie was bathed and groomed,  taken for veterinary care before then placed in foster care.

Thank you Pam, Bob, Devon and Jordan, for recognizing Sadie's potential and the pleasure the adoption of an older dog can bring.   

Sleep well, sweet Sadie, you will be missed.
