Meet Sophia (Local)
Be sure to view the additional photos of Sophia at the end of her bio.
Sophia is a very sweet 7 year old red Doxie girl. She is completely blind but boy is her hearing and sense of smell great- she can find her away very easily once she knows her surroundings.
Being blind, the sound of your voice will fill her with happiness and it clearly shows in how she greets you - it can't be explained.
I sleep on my back with my feet straight up in the air. My foster mom thinks it is hilarious!!! I have only been at my foster family's house for a short period of time, but I have learned the lay of the land and get along great with all my new friends, including the cats.
I am crate-trained and housebroken. I get along with other dogs, children, people and cats. I am current on vaccinations, on heartworm prevention, tested negative for heartworms. I love to cuddle and follow the sound of your voice. I would do best with an older person who is looking for a low energy dog and it would be best if there are not alot of stairs in my forever home, as it makes it easier for me to navigate.
Sophia would cover her new family with kisses!
She likes to go for walks and does well on leash. She LOVES to eat anything, but she doesn't want another dog near her when she's eating.
Sophia weighs about 13# and could stand to lose a few pounds. She doesn't mind sleeping in her crate. She loves being held so she can kiss you.
Sophia is a sweet, undemanding little girl.
Please consider adopting me and giving me my forever home.
Donation: $275.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company)
Interested in adopting this wonderful dog? Please visit our website and complete an online adoption application.
The adoption donation covers all pre-adoption vet costs (general health exam, vaccinations, heartworm testing/treatment when necessary)
PAWS of New England is not shelter but a rescue and thus is not funded by any city or state organization - we rely solely on the donations of our adopters to help defray the costs associated with saving these precious lives.
We are often asked, ""Why would you charge ""so much"" for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" ..... The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support ALL rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in discounted vet care, and many people will want to adopt it; an older dog with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt him/her. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others.
Most of our dogs have a sad story to tell, and some have suffered through years of neglect or abuse. We hope that you too are willing to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting them through adoption donations. Without these funds, our rescue efforts would not be possible.
ALL KNOWN INFORMATION IS LISTED HERE. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.
Please click on the "Donate" button below to make your adoption donation. If you can not adopt at this time, but would like to support the mission of PAWS New England, we would be endlessly grateful for your donation. PAWS relies entirely on donations and grants to maintain our operating budget. Without the generosity of people like you, we would not be able to save dogs like the one pictured above. Thank you for your support!
