Sassy Cuddle Bug 

Lover of park time with her pals and extra long naps, Sadie is responsible for overseeing smiles at the Aperkoo HQ. She uses her passion for food to keep Aperkoo on schedule by barking and jumping around everyday at lunch. She is an expert in creating joy and laughter with her loud snoring and persistent need for love and attention.  

Sadie practices excellent tug of war techniques with her furry colleagues and only chases bacon-flavoured balls. She is strategic in her park play, taking part only on warm sunny days.
