Dog “almost as perfect as God makes it” adopted after spending almost a year in a shelter in North Carolina

Sasha is a 7 year old mix. Guilford County Animal Services picked her up as a stray.
Mary Diaz decided to provide a temporary foster home for Sasha in March.
“She loves to watch birds and hunt them, but she doesn’t bark at them,” Diaz said. “Belly massages are the best. “
According to Diaz, Sasha loves watching Netflix and cuddling on the couch. Diaz and the leaders of the shelter can’t believe it took her so long to be adopted.
“Sasha is almost as perfect as God makes dogs, okay?” Diaz said. “I don’t understand why it took so long for someone to see and recognize him.”
Sasha was finally adopted on Saturday and goes to her “Forever Home”.
Sasha is one of the many dogs at the shelter who needed a home forever. She was one of five long-time people at the shelter, meaning they’ve been there for over 60 days.
“There are so many homeless animals, not only in Guilford County but also in other shelters looking for a home,” said Lisa Lee, deputy director of animal services. “They are wonderful and wonderful animals.”
