By KATHRYN GUTIERREZ, Associated Press – When the cat comes home, what do you do?
You do something cute.
So says a new breed that has made its way into dog circles thanks to its ability to talk.
The “Sassy” breeds are adorable, friendly and playful and their owners are so confident of their skills and personalities that they are even giving away free puppy rides.
“It’s an adorable breed and I’ve had several people give me puppy rides,” said Kristen Guido, a San Francisco resident who brought the “Sassys” to her front yard.
The new breed, named after the French word for “sassy,” or “sad,” is one of three that originated in New York. “
When you hear a dog whistle and they walk around with their tails in the air and their ears pricked up, it’s a little scary, but they are so cute.”
The new breed, named after the French word for “sassy,” or “sad,” is one of three that originated in New York.
Other “sassys,” including the American Staffordshire Terrier and German Shepherd, have been bred in the United States since the 1970s.
But the “sasquatch” breeds have been more popular than the others, and they’ve quickly gained in popularity in recent years thanks to a number of movies, television shows and books.
Their popularity stems from their ability to mimic their owners’ facial expressions and personalities, and also from their natural charm and love of socializing.
“We think that if we can get people to get attached to them, we’re going to see more ‘sasquitas’ and more of a trend,” said Sarah Kavanagh, a professor of animal behavior and neuroscience at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
“The more that people know that they can connect with them, the more they’ll want to get along with them.”
It’s a trait that has also made it into popular music, with the recent release of “Sasquatches,” a song by Justin Timberlake that features an alligator.
“There’s no question that if you’ve seen the movie, you know that these are the most adorable, loving, friendly, playful dogs around,” said Kavanighan.
“And they’re not just cute, they’re wonderful.”
The “saspins” also have a reputation for being affectionate with their owners.
In the recent book “Sanspants,” the title character is a “sappy dog” who lives in a suburban house.
“She’s not shy,” he says to his owner.
“You don’t know how much you mean to her.”
He continues, “I love her, she loves me.”
And that, says Kavanah, is what makes the “sandwich-shaped” breed so special.
The breed, she says, “has the ability to look into someone else’s eyes, to be a real friend.”
And as its popularity has exploded, it has also been gaining in popularity with its owner.
As recently as this year, “sapiens” could be seen sporting an impressive array of stuffed animals and toys in the living room of an apartment complex in San Francisco.
And while some people would have a hard time believing that their dog could possibly have the ability, the “Sandwich-Sasquinas” have become quite popular with their friends.
“People will say, ‘Oh, your dog is a sandpuppet!’ and I’ll say, I think he is,” said Lauren Caudle, an online trainer who is a member of the “doggie” group of “saskatchewan.”
“They are the ‘saskatoon dog.'”
The “sandpuppets” aren’t the only ones getting attention.
Another popular breed, the Staffordshire bull terrier, also has a reputation as a “sand poodle.”
But when it comes to being affectionately affectionate, the two breeds share many similarities, and their personalities aren’t dissimilar.
The Staffordshire is an all-terrain breed that lives on a grassy, sandy land and can be aggressive to strangers.
“Sandpuppies are very affectionate and very playful and are very intelligent,” said Caudler.
“They’re like puppies who are really loving and they are really curious and they love to play and they have a very playful personality.”
“Sandpitas” are also all-purpose dogs that can be used as houseguests or other companions, but their most famous feature is their ability, known as “saw-tooth,” to grab a human’s ear and make a loud noise, as if to announce its presence.
“Saws” are popular in dog shows, and even are used to help train young dogs.
“A sandpitas is going to be your best friend,” said Brittany Toms, a trainer at the New York City-based training company Dog Show Dog.
