Background Story:

Sophie comes to us from a home where she was not comfortable with the toddler in the home. Her owner found out after she was pregnant that Sophie was not comfortable around children. She was okay with the baby prior to him walking, but once he was mobile Sophie was very unhappy. They came to us to rehome her, but because she also was dog reactive on leash we decided to take her in at the Sanctuary so we could work on the leash reactivity before finding her a new home. Sophie is 8 years old.

Current Status:

Sophie is still settling in. Because she came to us from a home, going to a shelter was a hard adjustment for her. She loves her time with the staff outside of her room, but will hesitate to return when her time is up. We are working with her to make her room more appealing and for her to enjoy food rewards. Because she is stressed, she isn’t as interested in food as we wish it was. Once she relaxes into the routine more she will hopefully be more interested in the enrichment activities that we do with all the dogs.

Adoption Info:

Meet sweetheart Sophie! This 8 year old gal just wants to be the apple of your eye! Once she’s comfortable with you, she absolutely adores her friends and loves having nap time and snuggles with them! She can initially be a bit nervous in new situations, therefore someone patient and kind to help build Sophie’s trust and confidence would be great! She is also not a fan of others dogs, but continued training would be awesome for Sophie to help give her the skills to thrive! She’s a smart, well-mannered lady and already knows sit, down, stay, and more! At 50 lbs, Sophie would truly appreciate an adult home as the only pet to be a happy girl! Sophie just wants to be your best friend and have a cuddle companion- could that be you?!
