Sophie, much like the wind, is a free spirit and quite the stunning beauty! Sophie was originally rescued from living outside on the reservation, with very limited human contact. Since arriving in rescue, Sophie has started to blossom into a wonderful and sweet girl!
Sophie is approximately 5 years old and originally arrived in rescue January 2016. We believe her to possible be a mix of Malamute/Husky/Shepherd type breeds. She was adopted to a wonderfully family who increased her confidence but unfortunately circumstances changed unexpectedly and they were forced to give Sophie up.
Sophie is naturally more timid, but she warms up quickly. She loves attention, but she's also independent. She LOVES spending time outside in a fenced in yard and she enjoys long walks. Once you've developed a working relationship with her, she becomes very loyal and wants to please. Sophie has been introduced to children of all ages, although she can be clown like and clumsy, and she greatly prefers the older ages. Sophie does well with a 4 year old and previously lived with 2 older boys.
Sophie is highly intelligent and enjoys challenging her mind as she is quite curious and needs a person willing to provide her that mental stimulation so she doesn't become bored (and make her own fun - like escape artist tricks). Sophie is a medium energy and always looking for something to do - she enjoys long walks and even a little running! She also enjoys visiting the dog park and has taken to working on agility equipment. Although smart, Sophie is also stubborn and needs a firm, patient hand to ensure she follows through on all her commands she knows (and is learning).
Sophie does okay with most dogs but seems to prefer the company of larger companions. She loves the game of chase at the dog park, however, is a little bit too exuberant with the much smaller dogs. Sophie would also prefer a cat free home as she's much to interested in kitty cats.
Sophie is kennel trained and happy to hang out in her kennel. She is also house trained once adjusted to a schedule. She loves to sleep in the same room as you at night and loves the soft dog beds.
Sophie has been vet checked, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, spayed, microchipped and is current on flea/tick/heartworm preventatives. Sophie's adoption donation fee is $250.00
