The loving arms of GRRMF is always ready and willing to help a dog in need. Sofia came to us when her owner passed away and she needed a home.
Sofia is 7 years young and has lots of energy. She LOVES to run and play in the backyard. She isn’t very interested in playing with balls or toys. While she is running outside, she is always on the lookout for squirrels that she can chase up the trees and “stalk”.
It is obvious that this sweet girl has been around other dogs. Joining her foster family meant sharing her environment with her sibling canine Lucky. Sofia enjoys trying to get Lucky engaged to play, but this is not high on her senior sibling’s list. Sofia is very gentle with Lucky and when she shows signs of not being interested in playing, Sofia backs off and gives her space.
Even though Sofia enjoys being around her humans, she also enjoys having her space to herself. She has found areas in the house that she prefers laying down and relaxing. Two rooms that she refuses to enter are the bathrooms and the bedrooms, therefore finding her own spot at night to sleep. This sneaky little girl loves to be on the furniture, even though she is told NO when found up on the couch. However, when no one is home she will certainly find her way up there for a little snooze!
Sofia is house trained and has free run of the house. She loves going for walks. This is a perfect time for her obedience commands to be worked on and fine-tuned. It seems that this girl will perform several commands when enticed with a treat, but not convinced she truly has mastered them without a little bribe. One thing that she is not fond of is having her paws touched. Sofia is respectful around food and even though she does seem interested when Lucky is getting her food or pills she does not over step her boundaries.
Sofia is a well-mannered, good dog who deserves a home that will enjoy her as much as she enjoys life. She does have a lot of energy that needs to be burned off throughout the day. Are you an outdoorsy person who loves adventures? Sofia is ready to be your companion.
