Sophie is such a cuddle bug! This sweet lady will go up to any humans she sees, introduce herself and ask for their cuddles. And more cuddles!

Now in foster care, this very gentle girl is also having fun going for walks. She's great at loose leash walking, sometimes pulling, but not stubbornly. She's enjoyed playing with small dogs at a dog park. At home, she loves relaxing on the couch - or anywhere that's comfortable. When her dog bowl is full of her food, she'll pick it up and carry it to that comfy spot. She enjoys rolling back and forth on the ground. She's a smart, mischievous girl who understands "sit and is house-trained. She nicely free roams the house and does well when her foster is away.

Sophie will love a home with parents and kids who can give her those cuddles. She needs parents who can help her lose weight and stay healthy for a long happy life. She's a curious girl who will enjoy going on adventures. Come meet her! Offer her a cuddle and she'll follow you home!
