Facts about Sophia

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Toy Fox Terrier Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Sophia is an approximately 5 and a half pound Chihuahua/Toy Fox Terrier Mix that is spayed, chipped, vaccinated and heartworm negative. She just finished raising her puppies and is now ready for a new home. Sophia is a fun loving little girl and is a very very sweet dog.

In her current foster home they have discovered that she isn’t a morning dog. She gets cold easily and would rather be cuddled up under a blanket somewhere. She is very good at making blanket caves to hole up in. If she doesn't feel like getting up, she doesn't mind being carried outside and then she does her business and runs back inside where she is a morning cuddler, on the couch, in a blanket while you enjoy your morning coffee. She needs to be carried out in the mornings if she doesn't go out on her own because she is sometimes a "secret pee-er" if she thinks it is too cold. She does use pee pee pads as well if she has access to them.

This little girl is all about being with you and enjoying your time together. She is a good girl when left with access to a doggy door while her foster owners are at work, but she does seem to get lonely so she would like a home where her owner doesn't work alot of overtime.

She is crate trained for night time sleeping, but she’d much rather sleep with you in bed. A whole whopping 5.5 pounds of love. She loves to play with toys, and will pick them up and collect them around her on the couch. She can jump on the couch all by herself but in her new foster home she has stairs leading up to the couch and she really likes having those.

She is not a barker, but will bark when hearing other dogs. She has a deep bark for her size.

She is very good about going outside to poop, and is doggy door trained. It would be best to keep her crated if she wouldn’t have access to the outside when being left alone.

She is quiet in her crate. Loves strangers and especially children.

Her back legs have luxating patellas, which is very common in little dogs, so she isn’t up to long walks, but she loves to ride in the car. She will also go for as long of a walk as you want if she has one of those adorable strollers or a cute bag to carry her in! Of course, she would prefer that it has a fluffy blanket!! Her adoption fee is $200 plus a $10.99 microchip registration fee. She is spayed, chipped, vaccinated and heartworm negative.

About 4 Paws Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

4 Paws Pet Rescue is a small all volunteer dog rescue group whose goal is to make a good match between an adopter and a homeless dog. We are not focused on a particular breed, size or age. Instead, we try and take in a wide range of temperaments and personalities that would suit a wide range of potential adopters. We regularly have small, medium and large breeds, dogs that do well in apartments and ones that need a yard. We usually have dogs that are good with kids as well as dogs that would do well in a less active, adult environment.

4 Paws Pet Rescue has been rescuing dogs since 1999. We are a non-profit 501(c) c group. Our dogs come from all over, shelters, strays or owners who must surrender them for various reasons.

All dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and vet checked.

Our Adoption Process...

Each dog has a different adoption fee and it will be stated as posted. There is also a microchip registration fee that is noted as well. Senior dogs are priced lower than younger dogs since they are hard to adopt. We require an application, then you come out and meet the dog with your family and any other dogs in the home, then we complete a home inspection if all goes well. Adoptions are NOT on a first come first serve basis. We try to place our dogs in the home that will be the best fit for dog and adopter.
