Product Description

Adoption pending.

Sophie is very sweet and loving. She loves to play with other dogs and dog friendly cats; she will even try to play with the not so dog friendly cat in her foster home, when she is swatted she simply ignores and walks away. Sophie is happy to share her toys. She makes friends with anyone she meets. Sophie loves new experiences and is very curious. Nothing seems to bother or scare her. She is unconcerned when major storms are going on outside. She has a blanket she loves and enjoys laying on it beside the couch.

Sophie is equally good with men and women and is very good with children and enjoys cuddling with them. She really enjoys being part of a family where she can be loved and give love back. She enjoys a home with activity but also enjoys being a couch potato.

Sophie is crate trained but does great as a free roamer. She does not chew on anything in the house that she is not supposed to. Sophie sleeps cozily all thru the night.She is fully potty trained and has never had an accident. Sophie very much enjoys walks but gets a little sidetracked with all the wonderful smells and experiences. Still working on this. Sophie is extremely smart. Sophie responds well to her people and is anxious to please.

Sophie has been spayed and is fully vaccinated.
