I''m the lovely lady they call Sophie. It is a pleasure to meet you, human friend. I am a grown up gal, but I still have lots of energy and spunk! I''m not too far from puppy-hood. I''m a little nervous at the shelter because it''s a little overwhelming here. I hope to find a forever home before I get settled in here. That way this is just a quick stop on my way to a new chapter in my life! I''m sure with some tasty treats and positive training I''ll learn not to be so timid. I''ve been adopted a couple of times already, but my people just can''t seem to be able to commit to keeping me. Once I get home and get comfortable, I start to come out of my shell and even become a bit bossy- I''ll definitely need to go home with someone who knows how to help a gal like me succeed! Long walks will help us bond, and some obedience classes wouldn''t hurt either. There''s always something new to learn! I''m sure one day I''ll be sophisticated, but first I''d love to be silly and happy and have fun with my new family. I am full grown at ~55 lbs. I am currently living at the Holding Center- please speak with an adoption counselor about meeting me.
~My adoption fee is $95.00.~
Many adoptions will take approximately 1 hour or more. Adoption requirements and tips to speed up the adoption process: Please be able to provide a valid photo I.D. with your current address (If your I.D. does not reflect your current address, bring a piece of mail with your name and address on it) Be able to prove that you are allowed to have a pet where you live (proof of home ownership or a copy of your rental lease including the specific pet policy) Bring along all members of your household, including dogs for an introduction to a new dog. However, we do recommend meeting with an adoption counselor before involving children in the pet selection process. To avoid longer wait times, we strongly recommended that dog-to-dog meetings take place after 1:00pm. Participate in adoption counseling process to learn adoption guidelines and adoption options.
