Meet Sophia, the sweetest little love bug you could ever hope to welcome into your home! She adores people and is very eager to please.
She is very responsive and bonds quickly with the humans who are taking care of her, and once she gets to know you, it takes little more than a motion in her direction or a kind word spoken to get her tail thumping. Sophia is great with other dogs (not cats); she positively adores the 9-year-old Catahoula in her foster home (he took some convincing, but Sophia eventually won him over with her sweetness and charm!). Sophia is mostly very mellow for her young age, but she puts her puppy silliness on display occasionally when she sprints in circles around the back yard or lies on her back to play “Patty Cakes” with her paws.
Sophia does well with two walks per day (she especially enjoys “pack” walks with her foster fur buddy!) plus some time to sniff around and luxuriate in a sunny yard or park. Otherwise, she’s perfectly content to snuggle as close as she can get to her human and canine family members. Sophia will fit in well with and make a wonderful companion for many types of families. An ideal situation for her will be one in which she has human or canine company most of the time so she won’t get lonely. If you’re looking to add a perfect bit of spotted cuteness to your family, Sophia’s your girl!
If you are interested in adopting Sophia please email SLN2310@yahoo.com and request an application. Once your application has been received and reviewed, you will be contacted via email or phone by one of our volunteers. After your application is approved, the foster parent for the dog you have selected will contact you to answer any questions you may have and determine if that dog is a good match for your family.
If you have no particular dog in mind, we will be happy to keep your application on file and notify you if the right dog should come into rescue. Catahoula Rescue of New England is an all-volunteer group. Dogs in our program are fostered by volunteers. The foster homes care for our dogs as if they were their own. All dogs have received vaccinations appropriate to age and are spayed or neutered.
Sophia's adoption donation is $350 which includes Rabies, DHLPP, Bordetella, fecal test, heartworm test when appropriate and is on preventative, microchip, and neuter. We do not have a physical shelter, all of our dogs are fostered in individual foster homes across the New England and Canada.
