We Are Straydog is a series to make your week a bit more Wagtastic as we share stories from the shelter.
I can't believe I was selected to be the 1st We Are Straydog (WASD) story! I'm Sugar the sweet 2-year-old Jack Russell. I must confess I've had a pretty spectacular life, my "mama" rescued me from a shelter when I was a young thing and she spoiled me to pieces! We were best friends and would spend all our days together. I gave her lots of love and kept her going with my puppy energy. A few months back she got really sick and found it hard to keep up with me. She knew of this amazing place, Straydog (where I'm staying now), and had supported them over the years in their mission to save dogs. While I miss her so much and I have been told she since has passed, I'm so happy she sent me here to run around and be equally loved! Juana and the caregivers have continued to spoil me and help me overcome my shyness toward new people. I know mama is with me everyday and helping me on my journey to find another family who will adore me! Don't get me wrong this Straydog place is pretty awesome, but at home with you is where I want to be ! I'd love to visit with you and see if we're the perfect match, just click below to complete the paperwork or schedule a visit, I'll come to you I've got a driver. I totally understand your house might be full and even though you have fallen in love with me, you just can't add another 4 paws. There's a button there to help support Straydog and all they do for our big furry family here!

2018 is all about exposure and showing off our amazing pups so they can find forever homes and we can save more! We're open to suggestions, connections and contacts for restaurants, locations or events where we can meet the public, let us know if you have any input!

Our adoption event on January 20, 2018 will be held at Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar in Addison. Stop by the patio and say hello to our furry friends! In lieu of a donation we're asking for $25+ bottle of wine to be donated and used for our 2018 Gala wine pull.
