Sofie is a female 1-year-old Black Lab / Shepherd mix - s he's a beauty with sweet golden eyes and a dark brown/black coat. Sofie was just rescued from a high-kill shelter in Texas and is now in a Seattle area foster home while she waits for her forever family.
This happy, friendly girl has the intelligence of a shepherd and the lovability of a lab, who her foster says "is very easy to fall in love with". Her ideal day is an active one, topped off with lots of human affection - she loves pets, kisses, and belly rubs. She will do best with an active family who will get her daily exercise and will enjoy having her along for walks, runs, hikes, etc - she'll make the best running buddy. Dogs of her breed flourish when mentally/physically stimulated, so ongoing training (such as agility), though not necessary, would be very good for her. She will happily chew on a tennis ball or attempt to get peanut butter out of a Kong all day long.
Her basic training is a work in progress, but she is making strides with her foster as she is treat-motivated (she takes them gently) and is an intelligent quick-learner. She does very well around other dogs (even reactive ones), and has the potential to live harmoniously with cats for an owner who is can confidently introduce them. We recommend a dog-savvy owner or someone committed to learning.
Adoption Fee: $595 - Includes spay/neuter, DA2PP shots, Rabies, Bordetella, Deworm, heart worm test, grooming, microchip, boarding fees, health certificate and transport cost from Texas to Seattle. This adoption fee not only contributes to Sofi's rescue and care, but of hundreds of other high-risk dogs every year.
