This angelic little beauty with the sweet eyes is Sofia! She's a Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever Mix who was born on Easter 2015, is spayed, current on her vaccinations and is mostly house trained & crate trained with an occasional excited dribble. She gets along very well with dogs, especially those in her Foster Home, and hasn't met any cats or kids yet but she's a friendly puppy so we're sure she'll like them, too!
When it comes to love & affection, Sofia is the best at giving and receiving both! She's a very sweet girl who loves to interact with people, be close to them and please them. Cuddling is one of her favorite things to do and nothing makes her happier than curling up next to one of her people and snuggling as she falls asleep. She loves nights when she gets to sleep with her Foster Parents because it's a big cuddle fest! Belly rubs are a quick way to make her happy and she'll thank you with sweet puppy kisses, which she loves giving! Sofia has soft, beautiful eyes that shine with love and she has a way of looking at her Foster Mom that just melts her heart! She's so incredibly pretty, with a precious face that has a white stripe down the middle that just asks to be kissed! Falling in love with this delightful little beauty is very easy and she'll sneak into your heart quickly!
Sofia may be adorable & petite but this little lady is full of playful, spunky puppy energy! Her main goal in life is to play, then play some more! Her Foster Home has a handful of dogs and she has the time of her life playing with them! Three of the females are as energetic as she is and they play all day long, trying to get all of the other dogs playing with them, too! She loves wrestling with the dogs and if she's resting on the couch and the dogs start Wrestle Mania on the floor, this little munchkin takes a running leap off the couch and dives on top of them to get in on the action! She weighs 26lbs, the other dogs are over 55lbs, and she has no problem jumping in there - and will go back for more! It's so much fun to watch her and she has a blast! She also likes wrestling with her people! Chasing the other dogs around the house, especially if one of them is fetching a ball, is one of her favorite things to do, and she'll try to grab the ball as the other dog goes by her! Her favorite game is tug-of-war with balls and stuffed animals, and she loves those stuffed animals, carrying them around the house with her, giving them a few good shakes to show what a big girl she is! Exploring the house is another fun activity and she enjoys chewing on her toys too, so her Foster Parents gave her a puppy bone to chew since she's in the teething stage. When it's time to relax, she'll snuggle with the other dogs or her Foster Parents and take a nap or chew on her bone.
A smart little lady, Sofia's learning to walk with a leash and has been working on commands. She knows Sit and Stay, she comes when she's called and she knows how to potty on command. She's very treat-motivated so that will help a lot with training her.
She's such a character that you can't help but adore her! Some nights, after everyone else is in bed, and it's just Sofia and her Foster Mom, she'll get the zoomies and run madly around the house, sometimes carrying a stuffed animal, and just run until she's worn out. You can't help but laugh and smile with this adorable little bundle of personality around! She'll put a smile on your face when you've had a bad day and she'll make you laugh with her sweet 6 silly puppy antics.
Sofia would love to have a Forever Home with a high fence so she can run around, explore, play & work off some of her energy but it's not a necessity. She'd also love another playful dog or two to play with, if possible. She has a little shyness in her, mostly when it comes to new things, like exploring outside without the other dogs or her people. If a neighbor dog barks at her when she's alone or she hears a loud, strange noise, she tends to get scared but once she grows a little older and gets some self-confidence, we're sure she'll enjoy having a lot of fun outside by herself. She's very eager to please, is easy to discipline as she doesn't like a sharp tone of voice and just needs to be taught what her humans expect from her.
Sofia will be an excellent companion and family member who will bring a lot of happiness and love to her Forever Home! If you'd like to give this angelic little beauty with the sweet eyes a lifetime of love & happiness, please fill out an Adoption Application for Sofia.
