Meet Sophie! She is a yellow female, Dudley Labrador Retriever, approximately three-years-old. Sophie was surrendered to WCLRR after giving birth to 10 gorgeous puppies (we were not involved with her puppies.) It is now Sophie’s time to find her new home, who will make her a priority and give her all the love she deserves.
Sophie was not exposed to many things and can be nervous at times. While in her foster home, she has overcome a lot of her insecurities. Her new family will need to be patient and allow Sophie to come out of her shell in her own time.
Sophie is currently fostered with another young dog, and we have seen so much improvement in her that we would like to place her in a home with another dog that is not dominant but will help Sophie learn to be a well-balanced pup.
Sophie will need some training, and she is very responsive to training, so that should not be a problem.
Sophie is not a high-energy dog, but she shows signs of wanting to play now – so her energy levels may go up in the future. For the moment, she is happy sitting on a dog bed beside a desk and being with her family.
Sophie loves her walks, and her tail wags when she sees the harness. Sophie is potty trained; her new family needs to learn her schedule and give her potty breaks to set a routine. If her home has a doggy door would also be a good idea. Sophie sleeps all night without having an accident.
She was crated a couple of times initially, but she didn’t like it much, and since then, there has been no need to crate her. She happily stays in her bed all night next to her fosters and their dog. Sophie devours her food quickly, so a puzzle bowl is a good idea for her.
Sophie loves other dogs and gets along well with them; she has become inseparable from the foster’s dog, walking shoulder to shoulder together. Sophie would do well in a home with people who have another dog to be her companion, who walk her a lot, teach her to play, and give her lots of love.
Sophie is a special girl who needs a special, caring, loving home.
Sophie is spayed, up to date on her shots, and microchipped.
