Update: We have discovered that Sophie is good with kids but she is a bit of a jumper. So, a home with older kids only would be best for now.
Beautiful Sophie has had a busy fall and early winter. On Nov. 2nd she gave birth to seven healthy puppies. We were very proud of Sophie who proved to be a good mommy to all of her babies. It took a few weeks but Sophie's personality began to shine as she was able to get a few breaks from motherhood.
Sophie loves any and all toys. She throws them in the air, chases after them, and generally entertains everyone around. As an inquisitive girl, Sophie will try most things particularly, once she trusts her handler. A food motivated girl, Sophie loves any and all dog treats and will immediately sit or go into a down when treats are involved. Living with a pack of foster siblings,
Sophie has socialized very well with everyone in the pack. She definitely has the energy of a teenage dog but has quickly learned the ins and outs of pack life.
At this point Sophie is housebroken and crate trained. She loves attention and often just wants to snuggle with her people. As Sophie's pups are now old enough to find their own homes, Sophie is hoping to find her forever home as well. If this fun-loving girl sounds like a good match for your household, please inquire about her today.
Update-A few days after Sophie's arrival to MAGSR, her stomach looked distended, so we got her to the vet and found out that she was very pregnant and is due a litter of puppies in a couple of weeks.
Sophie was surrendered to a shelter as she was constantly roaming the streets. Sadly her family found it easier to dump her then to properly contain her. Her mother is an AKC registered purebred GSD and dad is anyone's guess. Sophie is a sweet friendly girl who enjoys the company of other dogs. Sophie deserves better, a family that will train her, take her for walks, provide both mental and physical exercise.
