Meet Sofie Ann
Do you like big mutts and you cannot lie? Well, you have to come out and meet Sofie Ann. This gal is going to be a BIG dog when she stops growing! At 4 months old, she already weighed 40 lbs. We were told that both of her parents had German Shepherd in them but the other breeds were unknown. Sofie Ann has the coloring and sweet disposition of a Collie but we wouldn't be surprised if she didn't have some St. Bernard or maybe even some Husky in her. Sofie Ann's owners got her from a friend but after having her three months, they realized that, because their jobs and commute times required them to leave Sofie Ann alone for far too many hours, they weren't giving the pup the time and attention she deserved. It wasn't easy for them to give Sofie Ann up - she's such a sweet and lovable pup - but they did what they thought was best for her. They told us that Sofie Ann was crated at first but had recently 'graduated' to the laundry room with puppy pads; she was never exposed to children or other pets while they had her but that she did well when she was boarded during their vacation; she loves squeaky toys and playing Fetch; craves attention and love; and has submissive urination when she gets nervous or is frightened. They added that Sofie Ann is very smart and quickly learned the SIT and SHAKE HANDS commands. Sofie Ann is very well-behaved in her kennel and hasn't shown any destructive behavior nor does she appear to be much of a barker. She's not too comfortable on leash right now but we will be working on this. If you live in an apartment or condo, we hate to disappoint you but Sofie Ann isn't going to be the dog for you. Her owners stressed the need for a large fenced yard for Sofie Ann so that she has the room she needs to run and play while safely confined. Although she wasn't around other animals in her previous home, Sofie Ann has shown a real interest in wanting to play with the dogs here. We think she'll do fine in a home that has another canine-friendly dog of similar size and energy level. If you are interested in giving Sofie Ann a loving and committed forever home, just stop by the shelter and ask to meet her. She can't go to a new home until after her 9/06/19 spay but we are taking applications on her now.
