A PRETTY & SWEET GIRL:  1 year old / 47 lbs.   Mostly Mutts adoption center is open Mon-Sat. 11-4pm. Some of us are in foster homes, so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week.  Hi, my name is Sophia! I am a sweet & playful girl who enjoys my time in the play yards with the volunteers. I have my own version of fetch.  You throw the ball & I will chase it but not return it.  LOL.  In fact, I like to ‘collect’ my toys in a pile – so cute! I will even take them into my crate with me to enjoy. During my photo session, I threw the toys in the air & had a good time. I’m described as an obedient, attentive girl who is very loving & wants to please. I am a smart gal too & a proud graduate of the Mostly Mutts University training program. I’ve learned the ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘paw’, ‘down’, ‘come’, ‘drop it’, ‘leave it’, & ‘go to your place’ commands, proper door etiquette, loose leash walking, (with my special leash) & accepting friendly strangers without jumping. I may be a bit slow to warm up upon first meeting, but – I do love people, so it doesn’t take me long to welcome you as a new friend & give you my paw for a friendly handshake. I’ll even hold your hand to show you I love you and I’m always down for a good belly rub! Where kids are concerned, let’s meet! I may do rather well in a home with an older child who is calm & easy spirited as I liked a 10-year-old boy I met who was like that. However, I don’t see myself happy in a home with kids running around, being loud or having kids over that would be the same, as this has made me anxious with some barking and growling in the past. My trainers Gabe or Emily will need to meet with you & your child as they know me best.  No very young kids. I met a few dogs when I first came to Mostly Mutts, & I was unsure about how to interact with them. Though I did try to play with some of the dogs, I also tried to bite others. However, after working with my trainer & having lots of successful playdates with other dogs, I now feel comfortable interacting with most of them & enjoy playing. However, I have a dominant female personality, & sometimes I’ll meet a dog that I just don’t like. So, if you have a friendly doggie at home let’s meet to see if we can be pals. My potty manners have been pretty good on the shelter schedule with just a few accidents, & they were also good in my temp. foster home with minimal accidents. So, please continue to be consistent with me so I can master my potty skills. I also have good crate manners (throw some toys in there please), & I did well for up to 3 hours alone (no crate) when I was in the MM prison foster/training program. I’m young and have lots of energy, so I’ll need a good amount of exercise & playtime each day. I ride well in the car, so maybe we could go to a nearby park for a nice walk or hike. I had a blast frolicking in the lake with my temp. foster dad! I can’t wait to meet you, so you can see my sweet & playful nature for yourself!  Energy level: 7-9.  I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed, & my adoption fee is $299.00.
