Sophie was born 1/2/16.  She is a lab mix who weighs about 45 pounds.  Sophie came to us as a surrender because her owner passed away.  

Sophie is a very skittish dog looking for a special home.   Sophie needs at least one other dog around who can help be a confident example for her.   She does not do well as an only dog- she is even more scared by herself.   She does good with other dogs but can be protective at times. 

Sophie likes to keep her distance from people at times but loves to sleep on the bed at night touching her person.  

Sophie is fearful of men and needs a female only home.  Because of her shy and skittish behavior she is not recommended with kids under age 12.    Sophie does not do well with cats.  

Adoption fee is $350.00 + tax (no checks)

Our fosters do the best they can to provide all information about the animals background and temperament while in foster care in their home. An adopters routine and home environment is likely going to be different than that in their foster home. 

Sometimes there is more that comes out about a dogs personality once they have been able to settle in a home and truly become comfortable. There are great articles out there written about the different stages a pet goes through after adoption, discussing transitions that happen at 3 days, 3 weeks, and 3 months. We highly recommend reading about this - it will help you understand the transition your new pet goes through.
