Sophia's Story...
"I want to believe in people."

What an amazing little spirit! Sofia is a sweet and loving “Pocket Pibble.” Though full-grown she is young, with a
puppy’s energy and enthusiasm, and a very waggly butt.

This little sweetheart loves dog parks and charms people on her outings to PetCo and Home Depot, and is calm in the
car. A loud voice or raised hand can still bring back a memory of something hurtful, but she recovers more quickly
each time. In spite of the past she loves people, dogs, and life. Oh, and toys. Definitely toys! There is a huge heart
in this wiggly little body. Sofia plays well with her doggie foster brother; her favorite games seem to be Tug, Chase,
and Tussle. She tends to be submissive and is perfectly happy letting another dog be “top dog.” As a youngster she
can play pretty hard and she still needs guidance about appropriate chew toys, but she has never chewed on furniture.
Ample exercise will help manage her exuberance as she matures.

Sofia is crate trained and housebroken and has completed her first obedience class. She is good on a leash. She’s easy
to work with and eager to please; she will go far with continued training. When tested with cats she preferred to
avoid them—“Uh…No, thank you…I’ll just wait over here.” She’s had all her vaccinations, and is spayed and

Sofia may always have scars on her face but the ones on her heart are ready to heal. Couldn't you see this little
girl working with children who have been through trauma, showing them they’re not alone? What a wonderful role model!

She has so much love to give. Can you help prove to her that people can be good? Could you be this little girl's forever home?.

Sofia was found as a stray with her mouth duct taped shut. She was in the Stockton, CA shelter and was set to be euthanized.

We are now happy to report that Sofia is in a foster home and doing great! From her foster mom: "May I present Princess Sofia, formerly of Stockton. Calm, eating well, waggy butt, and keeps putting herself back in her crate. Obedience training starts tomorrow."

She is getting along well with her foster brother: "Discovered the neighbor's dog. My Joshua barks at her but Sofia and Coco just stood nose-to-nose at the fence with their tails wagging."

"She wants to be friends with everyone so bad! Has a lot of puppy personality still. Quick to submit, doesn't escalate anything, which will help the process of getting along with another dog. It's early yet but appears she may have been housetrained. Not digging the dog door yet but she'll learn."

Sofia is available for adoption through Boxers and Buddies. If you'd like to open your heart to this little girl, please fill out an adoption application today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sophia, a Reno Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Reno, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Reno.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Reno already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Reno breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Reno paves the way for another one to be saved.
