Sophie's Story...
Sophie is an affectionate young girl. Her age is estimated to be 18 months. She is a lively little dog weighing 16 lbs and is extremely athletic. Despite the abuse and neglect during her first few months of life, she is a loving girl that craves attention and a warm lap to sit in. Sophie loves to play with other dogs but wants her person all to herself. She loves children and could fit into a family that already has a dog or two or three as long as they are no too big; or she could be just as happy being an only dog and the light of her person’s life. Her best friend is a senior beagle. He wrestles with her, allows her to lead him around by his ear and snuggle with him when her foster mom is at work. Seeing that Sophie was such a helpful girl, she was assigned a job by her foster mom as a baby sitter to a 6 week old bloodhound puppy. She played, slept and showed her the ropes for 4 weeks until she was adopted. Sophie is crate trained and mostly house trained with only an occasional accident if the door is not open or someone is not home so that she can get outside to potty. Sophie loves to chase squirrels and wrestle with other dogs but her favorite thing is to burrow under the covers and sleep with her person. She will fuss with other dogs over her stuff (chew bones) but is generous and shares if requested. We don't know how she is with cats. Sophie does not seem to have a preference over the type of person who might belong to her; just that they provide her a warm lap, love and a home where she will feel safe and wanted. Sophie is fostered in Birmingham, AL. To schedule a meeting with Sophie, please email info@FORrescue.net

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sophie, a Chattanooga Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Chihuahua for sale in Chattanooga, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Chattanooga.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chattanooga already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chattanooga breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Chihuahua breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chattanooga paves the way for another one to be saved.
