Sassy and Rich

Share This Story!
P1110838Today I flew Sassy, a three-year-old Border Collie, from a kill shelter to Buckeye Border Collie Rescue here in Tiffin.  She was a great passenger, very excited to go on this new adventure in her life!
Sassy was in a high kill shelter for a month and didn’t have much more time left.  Our local border collie rescue lady agreed to take her in, and I often transport dogs to bring to her.  Sassy was a bit shy at first, but she seemed to know what was going on, and she was excited to board the plane.  She looked out the windows a lot, then finally settled down.  She was a very good traveller and is now in good hands at the rescue.
