Saturn is a 1 yr old corgi shepherd mix, who weighs about 17 lbs. She and her sister Venus were found as strays in Modesto, CA. They were within a day of being euthanized, when Rescue the Underdog stepped in to save them.
Saturn is a happy, very athletic 1-year-old dog. She gets along well with other dogs of all sizes. She has been known to chase cats. She can be a little bit shy at first but treats and walks are the way to her heart, and she quickly warms up to anyone who can give her both. We know that she has lived in a house before because she is potty-trained and seems to understand that she should be calm while indoors.
At less than 20 pounds, she is the perfect option for anyone with a weight limit in their lease or someone with a smaller car. Unlike many other small dogs, however, Saturn can out-run and out-hike the best of them. She has gone on 10-mile hikes and 5-mile runs with her foster, and did not show any signs of being over-tired. Rather, she has the time of her life anytime outdoor exercise is involved.
Saturn is very food motivated (she will even train for regular kibble), so she is a great option for anyone who is interested in training their own dog and the bond that comes with it. She came to the rescue with no training, but she mastered “sit” within a week, so we know that she can learn so much more!
Saturn does best when she is able to get outdoor exercise regularly, so she would do best in a household that is already living an active lifestyle. She warms up to people and dogs quickly, so she would also do well at doggy day care or with a regular dog walker if life occasionally gets in the way of exercising her.
Saturn has not been around kids, but we think she would be fine with elementary-age kids and older. She is very gentle with her mouth, but she can jump up on people when she gets excited, so her family should be knock-over-proof.
Saturn is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and micro-chipped. If you’d like to meet her, please fill out an adoption application and a volunteer will be in touch.
