COURTESY POSTING: Sophie is 12 years old and weighs around 35 lbs. Her family of 10 years can no longer keep her, so she is looking for a new forever home. She is tri-colored and her hair grows very long if not groomed. She has always been a very sweet, calm and quiet dog. She is very loyal to her “mom”, generally staying in the same room. At night she sleeps in the doorway to the bedroom or at the end of the hall between the bedroom and the front door. While we can’t imagine her taking any aggressive action, it is clear that she is looking out for her mom. Sophie doesn't play with toys, but gets very excited about food of any kind. However, her diet needs to be watched closely so she doesn’t get overweight. Her general health is good, but the vet feels that she has some food allergies, which manifest as ear infections and skin issues, particularly on her paws. She has done much better (and lost her excess weight) since she was switched to a mostly grain-free diet. Sophie does fine with rice, but does not tolerate wheat, corn, or soy.
If you have questions about Sophie or would be interested in adopting her, please contact her “mom” (Lynda) at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Do NOT contact the humane society or complete an online application, and NO PHONE CALLS, please.
