Sophia is a super affectionate people-lover. She loves to nestle her head on them and wants their scratches and cuddles all the time. Now in foster care, she's been friendly to many visitors, and she adores her fosters' 13- and 15-year-old kids, being very gentle and loving towards them.

This quirky girl's perfect day starts with a morning stroll in the backyard, sniffing what squirrels may have left overnight. Then she greets everyone as they get up and get ready for the day, super curious about what everyone does. When they start to leave, she'll give a soft howl to say she'll miss them. Then she'll snooze in bed most of the day, gazing out the window, and greet her returning people with cuddles. She also loves an evening walk and then snuggles at their feet while they watch TV.

Sophia is excited to go out for her walks, pulling briefly and then walking well, not reactive to dogs she sees. She's an obedient, well-behaved girl who understands sit, stay, no and come here. She's a house-trained girl who freely roams the house and is perfect when home alone, just snoozing on her bed.

This affectionate, easygoing girl will love moving in with a large family that can give her walks and lots of attention. And she'll enjoy a yard or open area to explore. Come meet this lovable lady!
