Ruff Ruff! My name is Sophie
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Female|
I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Sophie is an approximately 11 year old - 15lb sweet little Maltese who has decided that she loves the nice weather! Sophie was not too fond of the amount of snow we get here, but now that the sun has found us, she loves to be outside and run in the yard!
She has learned all of the things that she missed as a pup and her toys are a favorite possession. She plays all by herself by throwing her toys in the air and going to grab them again. Sophie is also a great eater - she cleans her bowl after every meal!
Sophie is working hard on her potty skills and knows to use a potty pad and to go outside. She might occasionally have an accident, but after 10 years in a mill I think she is doing very well.
Sophie loves to be with the other pups, but I think she would also be fine as an only pup if she had her "person" with her during the day. She is still very shy but has come really far in that she now comes up to you for pets, and does not retreat when someone new comes into the house. Her best home would be with an older couple or single person, or with a family that has older children. I believe that Sophie has some hearing loss, and since she doesn't always hear you coming she would be frightened by the quick movements of small children. She can hear you when you call her to go out or to come in the house. Maybe she has selective hearing like my children! :)
If you are Sophie's forever home, please push that button so she can find you! This little girl so very deserves a home of her own! Any question can be directed to her foster mom at rescuejust1@ yahoo.com Sophie is being fostered in Upstate NY near Syracuse.

Rescue Group Info...
Puppymillrescue was founded in May 1999.
It was formed because I felt there was a desperate need to have an organization to help the puppymill dogs get out of Missouri and escape what had been their fate for many years, death and worse!.
To my dismay, I discovered that most of the dog breed clubs would not help to support the rescue of mill dogs. I began by forming the PMRescue list and putting up a small website.
At the time I had Four dogs for adoption that I rescued from a Missouri auction with the paid help of a Missouri resident.
In December 1999, I applied for non-profit status as a corporation in the State of Florida. And with the Federal Government.
We now consist of a small board of directors (4) and a team of about 20 people who help on a daily basis. Each is a volunteer, not one person is paid for her services to PMR, other than our accountant and lawyer.
We consider ourselves a Grass Roots organization.
Our rescuers and Board members and Foster Mom's are the backbone of PMR.
Without their dedication to these dogs, all would be lost.
They work, from their own homes, helping and loving back to health puppymill dogs who have been dumped by puppy millers who no longer have any use for them, or dogs we rescued by buying their freedom a puppymill auction.
And so they........ the sore, pathetic, scared, shy, terrified bundles of fur are welcomed into our rescue and taken under our rescue angel's wings.
We have come a long way and are very grateful to each and every person who has given of themselves to help over 2000 of these dogs get a wonderful forever home.
For the ones who cannot speak for themselves, I thank you all for your loyalty and support.
Sincerely, Jean Kenney, Founder PuppymillRescue
