Sophie is currently in a foster home after her owner sadly passed away. she has such a lovely temperament and she just loves to cuddle (particularly loves cuddling up on the sofa and having her belly rubbed) At 12 years old Sophie is still young at heart and loves to play with toys, and bounce around when it comes to dinner time. Sophie is slightly overweight but loves going on short walks and being outside in the garden.

Sophie loves a toy with a squeak but will concentrate on destroying it until the squeak is no more! Also, Sophie is house-trained; sleeps downstairs at night and is no trouble (she likes to sleep/rest).  When Sophie arrived we were told that she is not very good around other dogs – her foster carers have not experienced this although she will bark at some dogs when on the lead and she would definitely prefer to live as an only pet in the home. Sophie is good off the lead and she will stay close, although her foster carers always hold her when other dogs approach. A loving older girl in need of her perfect companion in a quieter adult home or with older teens.
