Sadie is an absolute gem. She is not the breed of dog I was looking for, but I am so glad I got her. I adopted her shortly after she turned 3 months. She is incredibly friendly with EVERYONE and EVERY animal we have met even ones that have been aggressive towards her, she is very adamant on befriending everyone, ESPECIALLY if they don’t like her. She gets bursts of energy and will get the zoomies, but she is mostly calm and always wants to be by your side. Our biggest training issue has been potty training. She was completely potty trained when I adopted her, but it all went out the window as soon as I brought her home, she can also be very stubborn sometimes, but for a puppy, she is incredibly well behaved. She is very large and does like to try and jump on everyone to give them kisses. We live in a city, so this can be a problem sometimes, a lot of people think she’s trying to attack them, but she just wants to say hi and give kisses. I’ve read a lot about this breed, Anatolians definitely are not the dog for me, Great Pyrenees are a breed that definitely would have considered adopting, but not my first choice, Sadie inherited a lot of Pyr personality traits, I’m not sure where her beaming friendliness and eagerness to say hi to absolutely everyone came from, but I am very thankful for it because she comes to work with me where she meets hundreds of new people every day.
Overall, she is an all around wonderful dog. Huge personality, bright and sunshiny, infectiously loveable.
