Update 3-6-16: Sasha has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. 🙁
Update 3.19.15: Sasha’s foster family wanted to give you and update on this precious girl so here it is! “Sasha is doing fabulous! She does very well on a leash and knows a few basic commands, such as, sit, stay and shake. With taking treats she does well just a little over anxious to get that treat so you must remind her in the sweetest voice possible to simply “be nice” and she will take the treat gently. She understands boundaries. She loves her crate as well as her new orthopedic bed and elk antler from Marianne M. The elk antler and a stuffed Kong are her favorite toys. She doesn’t play rough with other dogs but prefers that they respect her space same goes for children. Sash would do best with adult dogs and children over 8 years of age. She is a senior Corso who prefers peace and quiet in her golden years but she sure does love to snuggle! Sasha makes this adorable little noise to get you to look her way. She is a queen B who deserves the royal treatment and someplace peaceful she can retire to. True to the breed, Sasha just enjoys being with her people. Sasha does well with other dogs but must be introduced appropriately. She is currently residing with a female and male Corso and her best friends are Grandpa’s Coon Hound and the neighbors Golden Retriever
Sasha is an awesome female Corso looking for a relaxing, quiet forever home. Sasha most enjoys her treats, receiving love from her humans, and strolling around the neighborhood during walk time. She loves just being near her people….that makes her most happy! Sasha shows her gratitude by greeting her humans with a smile after a long, hard day at work. What an awesome sight to see as she is all beside herself happy that you came home to her…. she is all teeth, nubby wagging and butt wiggling!”
Update 2.25.15: As fitting for a new life Brittany now has a new name. She is Sasha….the bold, the beautiful, and fiercely loved cane corso. Meaning of Sasha: “defending men, defending warrior”
She is a survivor….one would never know the hard life she had before except for the telltale sign of protruding hip bones, backbone and ribs. She came to us so full of love, forgiveness and ready for her new life. Giving hugs and kisses her first day with us. She hasn’t given up on mankind….she is our defender. Fighting to prove there is still good in our hearts.
Update 2.21.15: Great news! Our lovely, precious Brittany has found an foster family and today she was sprung from the kennel and has joined them at home. What a special little lady she is as she is already giving hugs to her foster family after receiving a bath to wash the shelter smells away. The family who adopts her will be very, very lucky so please get your applications in as Britt is ready to come home!
Original Plea: Cane Corso Rescue recently welcomed Brittany into the family. She is currently in boarding until a foster home can be found. Brittany is a NYC Deathrow survivor! A member of the shelter shared her sad story, “Britney and her buddy Marley were found in the basement of an abandoned house by a construction crew! Britney is a sweet senior Cane Corso looking for a great retirement home. She is social, has an adorable gray beard, and pretty irresistible jowls! Britney did well on her SAFER.”
Shelter Intake & Safer Results:
Britney A1027034 – 8 yr female Cane Corso, stray, 75.4 pounds:
At intake Britney allowed all handling. She took the rawhide she was offered and chewed it through out the intake. She was so focused on that and would not budge from her spot or look up for photo.
SAFER; EXPERINECED HOME
At intake it was noted that Britney did not show any concerning behaviors and she allowed all handling. During SAFER she was very sociable and responsive to the handler. She was relaxed during the handling items, allowing the assessor to conduct all items without issue, and she had soft body language during the tag interaction. During the food test Britney was stiff and could not be pushed out of the food bowl. She only showed minimal interest in the toy items, and during the rawhide test she took the rawhide away and put her body between the assessor and rawhide. During the dog-to-dog interaction, Britney rushed in quickly towards the helper dog, but her body was soft and her tail was neutral.
