Hello, my name is Sophie. I love butt scratches and neck rubs.

I love people and just want to be with them. I get excited when I see my people or want attention and will jump up sometimes, but I’m working on that. So, a home with older children would be the best. I also shouldn’t live in a home with cats or small critters. I get extremely excited when I see the bunnies in the yard and want to chase them.

I like other dogs and do well with slow intros but sometimes I get overly excited and just want to play, play and play some more, I’m working on that too. I love stuffies and one of my favorite things is to get the squeaker and the stuffing out, it is so much fun. However, I do not like to share my toys or food with other dogs.

I think I might like to have a person that will take me jogging every now and again. I do seem to enjoy it. I walk/jog great on a harness. I like other dogs and well with them, when introduced properly, but when I am out for a walk and see another dog, I can be reactive on the leash and will need work to get better with this.

Treats! Treats are the best and I take them gently when they are given to me. I will go in my crate easily if there are treats in there. Once I have eaten the treats, I will let you know that I am not happy about being my crate. But, I will settle down after a bit. I am potty trained on a schedule.

I am a quick learner and am told that I follow the house rules better than my foster brothers. However, when no one is looking, I will sneak into the kitchen to check out what’s on the counters. Kisses and snuggles are the best things ever, other than treats. And, to show how smart I am, I can shake with both paws. My foster parents also say that I am a goof ball, even though I look so serious in my pictures. I like to roll around on the couch and practically do somersaults and get myself twisted like a pretzel. I have on occasion gotten so into rolling around that I may or may not have fallen off of the couch.
