Sophie is a beautiful 5-6 years old lab mix. She came from a rural shelter in New Mexico. CCR has been told she is a lab mix breed mix, but that is just a guess made by shelter staff, rescue volunteers, and our veterinarians.
Sophie is shy and will take a bit to adjust to new situations, but once bonded is very sweet and loving. She loves water and is a great hiking buddy! She loves to check out side trails, but is good about keeping track of her people. Sophie has done well at dog parks; she coexists with other dogs just fine, but is more interested in exploring and smelling stuff than playing. She has excellent recall off leash! Sophie plays well with dogs she is familiar with, she likes romping in the backyard with her doggy housemate, and occasionally with the neighbor dog. She doesn’t mind cats, according to her previous foster. She is housebroken and crate trained. Sophie has been through a training program to help build confidence, and learned basic commands. Sophie knows sit, down, come, paw, up, leave it, and will catch treats. She is very affectionate and loyal. She seems to click with females faster than males. Sophie is looking for a mellow home that enjoys spending time outdoors and wouldn’t leave her alone too much. She could do well with or without a dog friend at home. She will need some time to adjust to a new home, and needs patience and help her to be confident in a new setting. Sophie came to the rescue very scared and anxious. With time and support she has overcome her past and is ready for her forever home.
If you are interested in adopting Sophie, please submit an adoption application located on our website, coloradocaninerescue.org. We are asking for a $175 adoption donation. She is spayed, housebroken, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. Please note, CCR cannot guarantee the breed composition or ages of our dogs as we usually have no history prior to them entering the shelter.
