Sofie is approximately 2-3 years old and weighs in at a whopping 8 pounds. She came from a hoarding situation where she was one of 34 dogs confined indoors without the benefits of socializing with different people. This has lent to her being timid in new settings, but once she warms up, she will smile for you and her whole face lights up. Sofie is reserved with her kisses, and is an expert kiss dodger. Her favorite thing to do is to beg you to pick her up and then act like she hates it. Yet, this charming girl would love to be your spoiled princess. Sofie does well with dogs her size that mind their manners and cats that are not forward. She would do best in a laid-back, adult environment willing to provide patience and love to nurture Sofie as she continues to learn that she is cared for and not alone in her world.
Sofie is current on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. She is current on monthly heartworm and flea preventative and has tested heartworm negative.
If you are interested in this scruffy girl with her endearing underbite, fill out a Dog Adoption Application
Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish).
** Local adoptions preferred (within Greater New Orleans area and surrounding parishes). We do not ship animals, as a part of our adoption process is for the potential adopter(s) to meet the dog to assess if he/she is a match for the family.
