Sophie was discovered by a caring lady that saw her very skinny, on a chain, with no food or water. After several attempts to get animal control to do something, she went to the owner who surrendered her right away. She didn't even care to say, 'goodbye' to her :'( This sweet girl sure has been through a lot.
She's currently on slow kill treatment for heartworms and once that's better under control, she will be spayed. She's still a little timid, but extremely sweet. She loves attention, but is still a little fearful of touch. She'll still flinch when you go to pet her, but she really does love being near a loving person. For now, she seems to be a little guarded with her food around other dogs, although not with humans. With all she's been through, it would be understandable if she didn't like anyone, but this sweet girl just has a heart of gold. She wants so badly to trust and love and is willing to be brave enough to let it happen.
Ask about making this precious girl a part of your family today. Adoption fee includes heartworm treatment until cleared, vaccines, dewormer, microchip and spay (after HW treatment). You will have rescued a true gem with this little sweetie. Will you give this girl the wonderful life she deserves??
I will update with more pictures as she gains weight and gets more healthy.
