About Sandy

This girl is a firecracker! She is actually a breed known as Kelpie and she is a natural heeler. She is super playful and very energetic. She tires me out as she has sooooo much energy. She is a "farm dog" and with these types of dogs they do need a "job" to do otherwise they'll chew on EVERYTHING. Which is how we found out our Sandy girl gets bored real fast. But it wasn't always like this. At 6 months old we were told by our vet that she has Parvo. We didn't have any money to afford keeping her there for 3 days and 3 nights (the amount was pretty close to $5,000). So as someone who took on the responsibility of keeping this sweet little puppy alive she is my "baby". I forced pedialyte down her throat with a turkey baster (sp?) and gave her the meds which also had to be forced down her throat. She was also spayed just before this diagnosis was given to us, so this was really hard for me to do. Every two hours I had to do this and with a cone around her head it was quite difficult. But here we are with Sandy going on almost 3 years old now!!! This girl is such a love bug as her breed is a very loyal, and affectionate type. She is quite protective of our 5 year old as is our 12 year old Buster. She also will try to "corral" my son back to me and it really is kind of funny to watch her do this and have my son say "hey!" Because her breed is a purebred line, she does bite ankles. This is another reason why I have chosen to only do sitting at other people's homes instead of mine as I would have to put her away and I don't want to do that to my "baby girl".
