SENIOR SOPHIE DESERVES HER FOREVER HOME
She's a smooth red girl just 11 years young and weighing in at 12 pounds. She's a tiny little compact thing!
We here at DRLA are quite partial to our little Sophie. She is quite a character. People actually stop in their tracks just to watch her walk, hop, bounce and bop across the floor. She has a very unusual walk/run/trot/hop. She is one of a kind. You got to see it to believe it. She puts a smile on everyone's face.
She is a special needs girl. She has an enlarged heart and Cushings for which she takes daily medication. None of this bothers her and she carries on like a normal dog. She is still loving life and would like nothing more than to find her forever home! What's not to love? Right from the start her personality shined. She is well mannered, goes potty outside if not left alone for too long. First dog in line for breakfast and dinner. Patrols the floor to make sure there isn't a morsel left. She loves to hang out in her bed or on a lap. She is quiet and has no bad habits. She can use the dog door to take herself in and out. She sleeps in her crate all night without a peep. The perfect house guest.
