Sophie is an appriximately 4 year old female fawn with natural ears who is an absolute sweetheart. She came into rescue due to not getting along with the dog she lived with. Although we feel she was not the aggressor in the situation, she would do best as an only dog. Sophie can be around other dogs but she should not live with other dogs. She is a very velcro dog and wants all the attention to herself! She loves lounging around the house with her family and is very willing to please. She is being worked with to walk on a leash nicely, she will walk nicely on a leash after a short while she just tends to be very excited to go on a walk or ride in the car so she pulls. She is extremely food motivated and will do just about anything to get a treat or get a bite of food. Her foster home is currently trying to work on having her lose a few pounds as she is slightly overweight. Sophie is not very excited about toys but she likes to play, and enjoys playing in a yard and going on walks. She is currently being housed in her foster home with a cat and does very well with the cat. The cat chases her around the house a lot of times and she just runs from him. She absolutely can not be crated for any reason, or kenneled when the family goes away as she has a severe anxiety due to her past. She would do best in a home with someone that either does not go away on vacation or if they do have someone that can come and house-sit for them. She does very well being left alone and not getting into anything besides the garbage. She loves to root through the garbage and see if there's anything in there for her! She does great with strangers as well, though she barks and seems scary when they come over. She's just making sure that they are safe! As long as the guests just ignore her and give her time to sniff them, she is great! Anyone would be lucky to have a great girl like Sophie! Sophie came to MAGDRL in January 2017. (2)
