Foster Tails: Sansa, Queen in the South

Sansa first came to Humane Society Naples in March of 2022 as a transfer from another Florida shelter, hopeful to find her forever family in Naples. She has spent the last three months with a foster family who has really gotten to known Sansa for the laidback, senior queen that she is.

Squeals of excitement are what greet Sansa’s foster family when they arrive home. She loves her people, preferring to be in the same room with them and snuggled up on the couch (she is the definition of a couch potato) or her own doggy bed. Sansa likes having her family home and would thrive in a household where there is someone who is home more often than not, or with the ability to take her on a midday walk. At her age, it is more comfortable to be able to take a brisk, midday walk to use the restroom than hold it until it’s time for an evening walk.

Sansa gets along well with her foster sister, Jazzy, and has potential to go home with a family who already has a dog. HSN requires a meet and greet with any siblings to ensure sharing a home is what is best for both dogs. She can be selective about making dog friends while taking walks but happens to be very food motivated, which will be helpful towards training. HSN has a behavior team who can offer guidance! Making new people friends is something Sansa loves doing and even made friends with their neighbor’s seven year old son.

HSN is hopeful that Sansa’s future family isn’t too far away. If you are interested in meeting Sansa or learning more about her, please email adopt@hsnaples.org or call (239) 643-1555. Our team will set up a meet and greet at the HSN Main Shelter so you can see what an amazing dog she is in person! Sansa will also be at the Main Shelter from November 20-27, you can stop by to meet her without needing to set up an appointment during that week. 
















There is no more personal and impactful way to help animals than by becoming a foster, and Humane Society Naples has a variety of foster opportunities to help save more lives. From giving a momma and her litter a place to crash while they grow, to opening your home to an under-socialized animal, to giving an animal a peaceful place to recover from major surgery – there are many ways to foster and every one means the world to a shelter animal in need.
