Sophie is a beautiful, 2-year-old, German Shepherd mix. We think she's got a touch of another slender, long-legged breed in her -- maybe greyhound.
Sophie has always known love and good care. She was born on 7/29/2014 to a German Shepherd mama who had her litter in a public shelter. Sophie and her littermates were raised by a wonderful rescue foster family who kept them healthy, socialized them well, and helped the pups to pick up their mama's excellent temperament. They were all adopted as babies, but Sophie recently had to come back to the rescue through no fault of her own when her former owner suffered a serious illness. We've promised Sophie that she'll win the lottery twice, and find another family that will love her just as much as the heartbroken owner who couldn't keep her.
Sophie is friendly, confident, and loving. She gets along well with other dogs (in fact, she's being fostered with two of her littermates, and these now-grown up sisters love to play and romp together), but she seems to think all the affection from humans and toys belong to her. Sophie had previously been an "only dog" so the idea of sharing is new to her. She's learning to adapt, but we think she might be happiest with a family where she could be the only princess of home.
She would love to be adopted by an active family. She's a young, energetic adolescent. She loves toys and wants to be right next to her people. She's already house trained and has good house manners. S he still needs a foundation in basic obedience, but she's a very smart dog who would thrive in a good training class.
She's been kept on heartworm prevention since puppyhood, and she's healthy, up-to-date on on preventive care, and ready for her forever home.
