Sabrina is beautiful St. Bernard mix that came all the way from Iraq, four years ago. According to her current person, the rescue Sabrina was adopted from told her that Sabrina had spent the first 8 years of her life living in a cage. Since her rescue, she has flourished with love and patience. Sabrina finds herself in need of a new home once more and this time it should be a lifelong home!

Sabrina is a large girl as one would expect, weighing in at 110 pounds. She gets along wonderfully with cats. We are told that Sabrina is social with new dogs but that she does want to be “the dog in charge”. Because of this, a home with a mellow, submissive dog would be best. Currently she lives with a young dog who is too energetic, and this does not please Sabrina; she prefers mature friends, like herself. Sabrina is described as “absolutely terrific” with kids aged 4 and up. Of course, because she has arthritis, only children who have been taught to not climb or pull upon and be gentle would be best for Sabrina.

This girl sounds like such an easy going dog! She is OK to stay alone as needed, she only barks when she is being pestered by another animal and even then, it takes awhile before she will do so. Her owner states she can do stairs but she does have 2 bent front legs from an illness as a puppy. One must consider that stairs may be hard for Sabrina (though she doesn’t complain) and it’d be ideal if she didn’t have to climb too many, too often.

Every day Sabrina enjoys her walk. She is said to be well behaved on leash, never pulling, which is a great thing considering her size. Sabrina loves affection from people but she is polite about asking for it. “Everyone comes pre-loved”, we love that quote about Sabrina from her person. She is said to be  very gentle and quiet. This big girl with a big heart to match is ready for her calm retirement home.

Sabrina is located in Point Roberts, WA. For contact information please email:
