Please welcome Sophie to IBR!
Sophie is a 5 year old owner surrender. She is gorgeous and sweet, but needs some TLC due to allergy/skin issues.
FEBRUARY UPDATE: Sophie is a gorgeous, sweet girl. She gets along very well with her foster bullie sisters and also visiting dogs. She listens well, loves her crate, has never had any accidents in the house and loves all people, especially kids.
Sophie is a gentle giant. At 70 pounds, she could easily bull her way through the house, other dogs or her foster mom's smaller kids, but she is just the sweetest thing ever. She has never barked at anyone or anything since being with her foster family. She is a very calm girl but will give you the occasional butt wiggle to let you know she is happy.
Sophie came into rescue with a staph infection that was causing her fur to fall out. In just a few weeks of treatment with antibiotics, she is improving substantially. Her fur is already almost fully returned and she is otherwise a well-adjusted girl. Sophie does have dry eye, which requires daily drops, but she tolerates them well and doesn't fight (even though she isn't a fan of having them administered). The drops are relatively inexpensive and admininstering them isn't very time consuming, just a few minutes per day.
Sophie knows sit and shake. As a typical bullie girl, she chooses when and if she will comply with such commands, but most often she is a willing participant. She is also a very good eater, so her foster mom does have to watch her intake closely, as she is maybe a few pounds overweight which is being addressed.
Sophie will make a great addition to any family and really wants and deserves a forever family of her own!
APRIL UPDATE: Sophie is just the total package. She is a lovable girl with so much personality. She is very gentle with everyone, including her fur foster sisters and human brother and sister.
Sophie loves her crate, does great on a leash, stays with her foster mom off of the leash, is fully housebroken and crate trained. She is a quiet girl, no barking whatsoever. She will wait to be invited onto the sofa, but is perfectly fine to rest on the floor near her people.
Sophie is doing well on her diet and has lost 8 pounds so far! She does have dry eye, which requires daily drops and to have her eyes wiped clean regularly, but she is always an agreeable little girl and tolerates it well.
Sophie would make a great addition to any family!
