Sophie is a 6 year old fawn female boxer. She is just a big-gentle giant. She is skinny from years of having a poor diet, and will likely be over 75 pounds when she reaches her proper weight. She was turned in to the shelter with her son (who is also in our program) when the owner could no longer care for her. She seems to have been taken care of pretty well and is a very good girl who knows the rules of being inside the home. She is fully vetted, including spay, and in good health. She's got a quiet and gentle demeanor and so far seems to just like to follow you around and nap in the room where you are. She also loves being pet on her neck and chest and lets you hug her and cuddle her without fussing. Sophie has the sweetest face and a nice squishy muzzle that she likes to press on your leg for some well-deserved pets. She's really just such a sweetie.
Sophie is fully house trained and knows basic commands, does not jump, chew, get on furniture or bark (as far as we can tell). That just amazes us! She seems to enjoy the company of other dogs (she has 5 foster brothers and sisters), but has not been interested in playing just yet. She'd be great with kids and other dogs due to her mellow attitude, and would be a great match for another middle-aged boxer with whom she can cuddle (she currently can be found cuddling with our 7 year old Boxer named Pickles as I am typing up her bio!)
Stay tuned for updates and a video of Ms. Sophie!
If you're looking for a laid back but big girl who knows all the rules and just wants to be loved, Sophie is for you! She's ready to be adopted today! Sophie is being fostered by Dana and Matt. [Back]
