Smiling, snuggling Sapphire is ready to bring her zen-like friendship and silly mojo to your home! Every morning, she begins the day with a ritual: she sits and presses herself into her foster mom’s chest, getting a long pet and a face massage, complete with piggy snorts and her chin on her FM’s shoulder. If you need a buddy for your morning mindfulness or coffee, Sapphire volunteers (but please don’t stop petting her!). Massages, snuggles, and pats are always welcome in Sapphire’s book, and she’s made a name for herself as “Best Hugger” once she gets to know you.

But it’s not all rest and relaxation for Sapphire! She has an adventurous side, too, and is happy to go on nice neighborhood walks, or her favorite thing: Car rides! (Seriously, she’ll try to get in any open car door--so make sure it’s yours!) She loves to be in the car, letting the nice windy sniffs and smells wash over her. She’ll happily accompany you for car adventures to scenic overlooks or meandering hikes.

At home, Sapphire has nice house manners and enjoys relaxing and helping out with taste testing snacks--she enjoys pretty much anything, including veggies that she loves to crunch! She’ll show you her silly side, too, with little zooms and spurts of energy complete with tip-tapping toenails that will make you smile. Sapphire received 6 weeks of training from our partners at the Paws For Life prison training program. With a little consistency and structure, she makes for a fantastic best friend. Sapphire would prefer to be the only pet in the home--it’s for the best, because she will keep you busy with all the hugging, massages, and snuggling your heart could ever desire!

You can check out Sapphire in action on Instagram. About 8 years old and 55 pounds, Sapphire is crate-trained, house-trained, micro-chipped, up to date on routine vaccinations and knows her basic commands.
