Sassafrass was a puppy belonging to Hank McCoy, the Beast, which he acquired whilst serving with the Defenders. Sassy, basically a good dog but with a tendency to forget to go on the newspaper Beast had put down, accompanied the Defenders when they relocated to Colorado and became the New Defenders. She was still with the team up until it dissolved but did not accompany Beast back to New York when he rejoined his teammates in the original X-Men as X-Factor.

After Beast returned to the East Coast, Sassafrass was adopted by an orphan boy called Henry (aged ten). The pair were inseparable and went on to have lots of fun adventures. They were never attacked by supervillains.
