Energy Level 4 - Needs 1 hour of a mixture of off-leash playtime and or mental stimulation every day.
Hi! My name is Sofia. I’m a Lab mix and estimated to be about 8.5 months old. I currently weigh about 35 lbs. I made my way north in search of my new family. Is that with you? If so, apply today because with my cuteness I won’t be around long!
Here are a few things that my foster mom wants you to know about me:
* Even though I need a bit of time to get to know new people, I love my humans and want to protect them.
* I am getting really good about living in a house and going to the bathroom outside.
* I’m still a pup and don’t like to be left at home alone for very long, at least not until I am older. The older I get then, sure, the more I can stay home alone. I don't want you to get mad at me if I have accidents or chew things I'm not supposed to.
* I'm not sure about this crate thing; I like to be near my human.
* I am still a puppy, so I get bored quickly and when I'm bored I sometimes get into things I'm not supposed to.
* I do like to do zoomies--and I'm really fast!
* I have fun playing with the neighbors’ dogs, but haven’t played with any cats yet. I've recently learned the joy of children.
* I’m learning how to “sit” and “lay down.” I’m pretty good on a leash but pull a bit when I see see rabbits or my dog friends.
* My favorite thing to do is catch doggie bubbles -- Juicy Watermelon is my favorite flavor!
* I am hoping my new family will play with me and love me forever and ever and ever!
All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
