found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
This is a very shy girl—she was simply born that way. While socialization and basic training has helped build her confidence, Sofie will most likely always be shy around strangers. She loves her own, those she has come to know and trust. She likes to sit quietly with one of her people, but when they’re standing while holding her, she finds the distance between being up in the air and down on the ground somewhat unsettling. She would much rather be in a good friend’s lap or on the floor playing and viewing things from her own level.
Sofie is very bright, easy to train, so anxious to please that she has done well with basic obedience and leash training. Consistent, calm guidance will keep her secure and confident in her human’s ability to handle whatever situation arises for her. She is crate- and pad-trained and would do especially well with access to the outside. The warm sunshine is her friend, just ask her. She does like her crate and feels safe in it, but nights there shouldn’t be too long.
Sofie could be the love of your life with patience and understanding. If you’re that special person who wants to be the love of her life, please fill out an application today so that you can meet her as soon as possible!
