Located in Kennels - Southern River, WA 6110.
Everyone who has cared for Sophie loves her. She is a playful, attentive and affectionate. 'No trouble'. Social.
Sophie will appeal to many homes but ideally she would love a home with folks actively looking for a companion or family dog. She is a great jogging buddy. Active retirees, families with older kids or singles who work from home would love Sophie.
Sophie will not suit homes where residents are young, frail, elderly, time poor or looking for a baby sitter for their current dog.
Sophie is friendly.
We recommend any kids be primary school aged or older as a precaution in case a a child is accidentally knocked over.
Sophie has a medium, normal, activity level. She loves her daily adventures to the park. If you miss a day she is unlikely to misbehave but she may need extra cuddles. She is a good jogging buddy too.
No but she may take advantage of an open gate to wonder off and explore. She needs a secure yard with normal 6 foot fencing.
Nuisance barker or destructive?
Sophie will alert you to something strange but is not currently a nuisance barker or destructive.
Tolerance to being alone.
She has lived with another dog recently and was fine at the dog beach. She is also no trouble in the kennel she is currently living in. As she is very friendly we recommend a home where she does not spend long periods of time alone. We don’t want her sleeping her life away.
Bringing a tennis ball to her carer – wanting to play. She also loves pats and affection.
Not much. She is a very happy and resilient doggy.
