aggressive, just afraid of new sights and sounds. However, she’s very happy in the back yard!
Sophie has the sweetest, most lovable face ever🐾💕 No one is ever happier to see you than Sophie. She will sit near you, play fetch with a ball 🎾, or just hang out together. She is happy to chase a ball all day.
Sophie is a little slow to warm up to new people, but once she’s had the chance to check you out, you are her furever friend! Hugs, wags, kisses, and snuggles all the time. Sometimes she’ll break into zoomies because she’s so excited 💕. Sophie doesn’t need a fenced in yard, she does very well on a lead in a small yard. She’s more comfortable in the back yard than on a leash walk. But with exposure to leash, she’s has gotten better. She’s not aggressive, just timid and nervous around new noises and sights. She can alert when new people approach, but settles with verbal commands. But in the yard Sophie is happy and confident. In the back yard she likes to wander, sniff and feel a little freedom. She’ll hang out back during nice, sunny, afternoons watching the squirrel and birds.
Sophie adjusted well to friends and family visiting. During dinner, she slept near the table, but never begged. She rarely barks, and is totally sweet ALL of the time.
Sophie gets a little nervous around a lot of new people, noise, and new experiences. But is usually eager once given the chance to figure it all out. She would love a small family, single owner, or a couple who have lots of patience and love to give! She can handle more extended time away from her humans, but would prefer a little more human contact. She is always incredibly excited when her people come home 🏡
Since she’s been here, Sophie has begun to take treats and will respond to those as reinforcement. Her favorites are any kind of peanut butter treat or small milk bones. Sophie is such a sweet girl 🐕‍🦺🦴🐾. Her previous foster had a 2 year old at home, and Sophie was patient and comfortable with her. Sophie definitely needs a home that can afford love, patience, time, and routine for this sweet girl 💙, but she will make a family very happy!
