Name – Sochi and/or Sofie
Location – North Carolina
Adoption Fee - $150.00 each
Sochi and her sister Sofie were dropped off at a local shelter when their owner passed away. No family member would give them a home to live out their final years, just dropped them off at the shelter nameless. They were taken into foster care during the winter Olympics taking place in Sochi, Russia hence her name and Sofie just looked like a Sofie.
Both girls were in horrible condition, neither had obviously ever been to a vet, never properly cared for. Sochi and Sofie had mammary tumors, the nastiest teeth we’d seen in a while, very heartworm positive, very overweight and not spayed. Because of the severity of the heartworms and age it has taken a year and multiple surgeries to get both girls healthy.
The girls are estimated to be between 8 to 9 years old black and tan smooths. They have been separated since coming into foster care due to not having room in the same foster home. We did get them together after all the medical treatment had been completed but too much time had passed, they didn’t know one another. For that reason they can be adopted separately.
Sofie and Sochi have different and yet the same personalities or traits. Both are set in their ways and love their comfort. Both girls could stay in bed all day long if you didn’t make them get up. They like to have a nice warm lap to rest in and tummy rubs all day long. Neither one is food aggressive and will let you know when it is time to eat. Sochi will take more time adjusting to a new environment where as Sofie will adapt more quickly.
Neither one are completely housebroken but a work in progress. If they had a one on one owner relationship they could still be housebroken. The girls have been in rescue for over a year due to all their earlier health issues. They are now healthy and ready to be adopted.
Sochi has been fostered with a cat but Sochi has not. Children are an unknown to both as far as their foster homes know. Probably older children would be best. Both girls sleep in the people bed at night; they know where it is most comfortable.
Sochi and Sofie have just amazed their foster parents with their young attitude and resilience to bounce back from all the surgeries they have had to go through. These girls are enjoying their new found freedom to the fullest. Both girls deserve to spend the rest of her life as a very loved and pampered pooch.
Sochi and Sofie are now current on their vaccines, heartworm negative and on heartworm prevention. They have had dentals, been spayed and microchipped.
If you can offer either Sochi and/or Sofie the pampered life they deserve please e-mail their foster parents at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the on-line adoption application at www.doxieacrerescue.org and specify you are interested in either Sochi and/or Sofie.
Preference will be given to North Carolina, Virginia and South Carolina applicants but applications from other states will be considered. Since we like to meet all of our adopters that prevents us from using group transports to get our foster kids to their new home. We will transport our foster's ourselves or meet our adopter's half way if a reasonable distance. Otherwise the adopter will be required to come to North Carolina to aquire their new companion.
