Sophia is a very sweet and friendly Australian Shepherd mix who is ready for her forever home! She is about 2 years old, a great weight at 30 pounds, and she has an unusual gray/black coat and a full tail. Sophia is housebroken, she loves her crate, and she is just starting to learn her basic obedience commands. Her leash walking skill is still a work in progress (she is so excited to be going somewhere that she can’t help but pull on the leash!) and she is a great passenger in the car.
Sophia LOVES EVERYONE! She has a bit of that “Aussie reserve” when she first meets someone new, but within minutes she pivots from shy to little kissing machine! Sophia is a medium Velcro girl who loves to be around her family, but she is also comfortable napping by herself in another part of the house. Sophia loves other dogs! Just like with people, she is a little shy and reserved when she meets a new dog, but once she warms up she is very playful. This medium-to-high energy dog loves to wrestle and play chase with other dogs, play with toys (especially squeaky toys) and go for hikes and adventures, and when all the play is done Sophia is ready for a nap and lots of cuddle time – she has a very nice “off switch”. Sophia has not been tested with cats.
The ideal family for Sophia is active, has time to spend with this little cutie, and is committed to continuing her training – she has more to learn! A fenced yard and another playful young dog are important, and because she is still mouthy with her toys any children in the home should be at least 12 years old. Sophia is one fun young girl, and if you are her great match apply today! Sophia is fostered in Gastonia, NC.
