Sofie is 1 years old and was surrendered to FBV because she would fight with the pugs in the house. She has a clean bill of health, is a very good eater, is not a barker and has a super playful personality.
She absolutely loves to cuddle and will do so any chance she gets. Her favorite toys are balls and stuffed animals. She loves to chew bones and play catch. She also really loves belly rubs!! Sofie will roll on her back on approach when she desires a good belly rub.
Sofie is housebroken and doing much better walking on a leash. She is also crate trained but prefers not to be crated. She is happy playing in a yard. She loves to run and is a jumper. Therefore, a fenced yard in her forever home is a must. She also likes taking short strolls around the neighborhood. Someone who is home all day or someone who can provide a midday potty break is not required but is preferred.
It is physically evident that Sofie had a rough time in the past with other dogs, and as expected, she is very cautious and can be aggressive with other dogs. It appears that she always had to be protective of her food and space. She can be submissive, timid at times while other times shows dog aggression. While in foster care, she has made great progress with her foster sibling and has been around other small dogs with no problems. She will need to be an only dog in her forever home or have only small, submissive dog siblings. Sofie is aggressive with large dogs. If going to a home with other dogs a slow introduction will be required.
She is an extremely affectionate dog that craves love and attention. She wants to cuddle and be with her foster mom all the time. Sofie has lots of energy and loves to play.
She is loyal and protective and the sweetest little dog imaginable. She is an absolute pleasure to be around, a true gem that deserves a great home!! Sofie deserves a family who has lots of love, attention and patience to give her. If this sounds like you, please apply!
