Meet SOPHIE! This girl has had quite a journey prior to coming into our care and is now just looking for a family to love her and snuggle her as much as possible. She was found as a stray and was still lactating so was clearly used as a breeding dog and had a litter recently. Dogs like SOPHIE are often abandoned when they are no longer needed for producing puppies. Puppy mill dogs often require a lot of time and patience as they’ve only known life inside a cage, but SOPHIE is very sweet and trusting of her people. She LOVES to cuddle and give kisses. She’s a pretty chill dog and although she does like to explore and go for walks she prefers them to be short. She does love to poke around the backyard though and has developed a bit of a prey drive but it’s actually pretty cute to see her jumping up and down trying to catch some smaller critters because she probably hasn’t had the opportunity to do that much before. She is a flight risk and her new people will need to be VERY careful with her around open doors – she will bolt. She’s been working on housetraining and has made a lot of progress but may still have a couple accidents in the home. She is not crated currently (girl has spent enough time in there ya know?) but she’s not destructive in the home. She’s quiet but will bark to alert you of outside noises and is possibly working through some mild separation anxiety as she tends to be vocal if her foster leaves the home. She’s great with people but gets a little nervous if people approach too quickly so proper intros are key and SOPHIE should be allowed to approach the person first. She’s been great with all dogs so far and lives with two very large dogs perfectly well. She met a child in her foster home once and did well but young, very active children in the home may be a bit much for her to handle. She hasn’t been tested with cats. We’re so happy to be a part of SOPHIE’s second chance! If you want to meet her fill out an application to adopt now!
