In 2017, Sadie was rescued from a job walk where a tenant at the location no longer had the means to care for this 10 week old puppy. Now, Sadie has a loving home and is a huge part of the Viking family. With her tenacious attitude, she keeps everyone in the office alert and on their toes. Although she does spend a good portion of the day napping or sunbathing in the window, Sadie contributes to Viking by being a lovable friend, a protector of the office, and a world-famous crumb catcher. It’s been said that dogs in the workplace can reduce employee stress, boost office morale, and promote productivity and Sadie’s playful energy is proof of just that. Everyone who visits Viking is greeted by Sadie with a quick sniff check and, if you’re lucky, kisses.
