Sophie was given up to a local shelter because her family was moving. When our volunteer met her she said "Sophie presented herself to be a perfect little lady. She was polite and took treats nicely." Her family described her as pretty well housetrained (she had free run of the house with occasional accidents), lovable, loves chewies, great with most people and a dog who loves to play ball." She would do best in a home with all females though. It takes a while for her to trust men and frankly we don't want to stress her out. She would probably enjoy a dog buddy or two and toys, lots of toys. She's smart; a quick learner. She is a bit nervous at first meeting other dogs but she works it out. She is able to entertain herself with Kongs, toys and balls. She will bat a Kong around the floor, pick it up and drop it so it bounces and she can chase it. She likes to be under the covers and needs to sleep in the big bed with her people. She’s cute, sweet, very playful. She needs a fenced yard, all adult home and doxie savvy adopters. ***Applicants must be willing to drive to Savage, Maryland to meet and adopt Sophie.****
