Sophie Sweets certainly hasn't had an easy time in life. She was adopted from our partner shelter as a puppy 5 years ago. At some point she ended up at a nearby high volume/high kill shelter absolutely terrified. Workers at her originating shelter quickly retrieved her and helped her gain some confidence. She was recently adopted again only to be returned after the family adopted a puppy. Sophie deserves better than this and we're determined to help her find a true forever family!
Sophie can be initially shy, but quickly warms up and even more so with another friendly, confident dog in the home. She enjoys going to the dog park and romping with her canine friends. She warms up quickly and has become friends with all of the shelter workers. In her previous home she was completely house broken and loved her people very much. She enjoys going for walks and continues to work on her leash manners. We think she'd do great with an easy walk harness or the like.
This girl has become a shelter favorite. But we know there is a true forever family out there just waiting to find her!
Sophie has been treated for heartworm and is now in a local foster home in TN. Her foster mom reports that she's the sweetest girl who is a pleasure to have in the house. She's does well in her crate and hasn't had an accident in the home in over two weeks! She's a smart gal as she knows sit and down. And she can easily be bribed with cheese and bits of hot dogs, which will be great for continued training. Sophie is fostering with 4 kids and super sweet with them. Her foster mom says she's very gentle and loving. Her favorite spot is her foster mom's lap- if she'll let her! She's loving foster family life and especially enjoys rolling out in the grass in the back yard! This girl has been failed so many times and it's wonderful to see her doing so well. We can't wait until she has a family of her own!
