UPDATE: Sadie has been rescued by the Jason Heigl Foundation. Thank you to everyone who helped to share this dog’s story. If you have pledged funds for Sadie’s rescue, please honor your pledge.
Sadie is on her way to the vet and then will be evaluated by the staff. Follow the amazing work on Facebook of this wonderful rescue organization by clicking here.
The lonely Mastiff named Sadie lies in her kennel at the busy San Bernardino City Shelter as if she has given up; her face rests upon her paws and her eyes no longer make contact with anyone as potential adopters walk by her temporary prison.
A volunteer who has interacted with Sadie reports the following:
“Sadie is super affectionate with humans. She has a big heart and a good soul.
Sadie would be better if she goes to a house with no other pets for now… She will need some time to decompress and socialize.”

Click here for Sadie’s Facebook page as volunteers share her story. Sharing saves lives. Please pass her story onto your friends, family and coworkers. It only takes one person to make that special connection and become her hero.
As notes from the staff at San Bernardino have stated this dog is not good with people or other dogs, videos and volunteer descriptions can aid in making an objective decision about Sadie. A volunteer reports the following:
“She is a very large, loving and friendly BULL MASTIFF.
She has shown NO interest in small dogs, even when yapped at.
We can’t temp test them, but we can take the comments made by those who meet and love the dogs, and relay them to interested parties.
That is what networking is all about.
Gathering the information and passing it along so that everyone who might be able to save the dog, has the information they need to do so.”
Here is one video of Sadie interacting with a volunteer. Judge for yourself.
