|Description: Sophie Update 9/8 - This dark chocolate nugget is a sweet girl but still in the crazy puppy phase. She need lots of extra human attention and playtime to make up from being deprived previously. Sophie gets excited to meet everyone and will jump up and even grab their hand or arm in her mouth to get noticed, so we’re working on it. She is not aggressive towards dogs or humans but she is big, strong and exuberant so she can be a bit overwhelming at times. She likes other dogs but is still trying to figure out how to fully interact with them as she had a bad experience before she came to us. Sophie likes playing with toys and chewing on everything possible, plus she really likes the sprinklers. She loves going on walks and smelling all the different things but does pull and zig-zags so her forever family will need to help her with her leash skills. With some good puppy training she will grow up to be a wonderful dog as she loves to please and is food motivated. Sophie is growing quickly and looks like she’ll be a big beautiful girl. She has displayed some prey drive and has already caught some critters, so we’ll be watching to see if she turns into a full huntress, in which case she might not do well with small critters and cats. Sophie is currently recovering from her spay so will need some to heal, but should be ready for her forever family soon.
Sophie is very special! She is an English style purebred lab with a darling "zipper" down her face, beautiful conformation and a shiny coat with wavy fur down her back. In addition to her gorgeous looks, Sophie has a lovely temperament and greets all people and dogs with a wagging tail. Playing fetch is a game she enjoys and she delights in her toys- one toy in particular is her favorite as it holds treats! She hasn't had a lot of experiences away from her yard but is such a sweet dog, she will soon learn about all the fun things she can do as part of a family. She needs to be spayed and to spend some time with her foster before she will be available for adoption. We love this girl and look forward to updates!
