Meet Sophie Donna, a sweet and spirited gal who just celebrated her first birthday! Sophie was lovingly surrendered because her owner couldn’t provide the exercise this young pup requires. Although she was a little shy at first, Sophie soon was exploring her new foster home at full throttle. This striking beauty is also an athletic speedster. Sophie loves to run in the yard and explore every little thing.
Sophie didn’t know she would be living with three new foster siblings, but she immediately loved each one with lots of kisses and play. She plays well with her furry sibs and seems to enjoy her new pack. We understand she likes cats, too, but haven’t observed her with them, yet. Sophie’s friendly and fun nature shines through to whomever she meets.
This one-year-old is very bright, and has mastered some basic commands like sit, shake and turn around. Sophie is working on her leash skills – seems she only has one walking speed: FAST. She’s a quick learner, so should master this and more with the help of her foster family. Sophie is house broken and doesn’t need to be crated. She loves to sleep snuggled in bed with her foster mom.
In addition to running and playing with her fur siblings, Sophie loves to sniff everything! On walks and in the yard, she pauses to explore all sorts of things we humans don’t smell, using that amazing retriever scent sense. After wearing herself out, Sophie loves to rest snuggled with her foster mom. She’s a sweetie and is very affectionate with her fur and human friends. All young Sophie needs is a loving family ready to enjoy guiding a high-energy gal safely and happily through life.
