Sofie is golden mix who was adopted from MAGRR as a puppy and went to a very loving home with an adopter who has a soft spot for rescues. Sofie lived with 6 other rescue dogs, 5 cats, and a bird. Sofie has always been a bit insecure with other dogs and while she was accustomed to living with her pack, in the last year changes in the home magnified her insecurities (and some of the other dogs in the home) and she struggled. Her very loving owner recognized this was not the place where she would flourish and contacted MAGRR to assist. Sofie is a very sweet loving girl, she does exhibit prey drive and will bark when she hears someone coming to the house. Current foster is working on teaching Sofie “quiet” command to turn off her alarm. She is currently being fostered with other dogs/cat but would do best in a home as an only dog. Sofie has met children and does well but it would be ideal for her to be in a home with dog savvy children over the age of 8. She also currently lives and has previously lived with cats but cats should be dog savvy as well. Sofie walks well on a leash and has been through basic obedience courses. She loves to give butterfly kisses and will nudge your hand to keep petting her if you stop. She is agreeable to being handled/groomed by someone she trusts. She does take a bit to warm up to new people but once she does, she is a very loyal and sweet girl. Her energy level is mellow, she loves walks or sniffing and rolling in the yard but does not require intense exercise. She naps quietly during her foster moms work zoom meetings & occasionally takes a few hours off from being an office pup to hide in the AC and nap with her foster dad. She is recently crate trained, sleeps in a crate at night and when the humans leave the house. In a home without other dogs, she would be fine alone without a crate. Sofie is currently being fostered in Southern CT.
