Sophie is such a beautiful pup!
This girl was a stray on the streets of Memphis when the shelter picked her up. She was set to be euthanized, so we had to help.

Soph is house and crate trained, though the crate is not her favorite place to be.
However, for the past few weeks, she hasn’t needed to be crated her while her foster works, because she behaves and hasn’t gotten into any mischief. But, be fair warned, this lady is very partial to footwear, so if she sees a flip flop or shoe, she thinks it’s a chew toy so those must be kept out of reach!

Her foster calls her a sweet and sour patch kid because she can be sweet (loves to cuddle with her human) or she is crazy playful and just wants to romp and wrestle. She does play hard at times, but has now learned to take correction from her foster siblings when she gets to be too much for them.

Sophie does good in the car and in stores and loves to go to doggy daycare and for walks. She is doing much better on a leash. At first she may pull with excitement, but then will calm down. When she sees other dogs, she will stop and watch them. Once her foster gets her attention back, she continues on her journey.

The best home for this energetic girl would be an active one and ideally, she would love to have another young lively dog to run around with and be her playmate.

Let us know if you are interested in this great girl by submitting an application. You will be glad you did!

Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.  

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
