Sophie is a love bug! From what we can tell, she is a cute little scruffy dachshund-chihuahua mix. Even though we don't know her back story because she was found as a stray and taken to a local shelter, we do know she seems to love everyone, both human and canine. Some dogs may not like her "in your face" style because she leans to her chihuahua side there! She loves her toys and playing with other dogs her size and age. She is still very much all puppy. She will require someone who is home. She loves sleeping in the big bed at night with her family pack. Sometimes it takes her a bit to settle down in bed or on the couch because she wants to play. She is not crate-trained and will need help with housetraining. She needs a securely fenced tall yard (non-wire or chain link) and a single family home. She is not for an apartment, townhouse or condo because of her barking. It would be a dream if we could place Sophie and Nina (12885) into the same home together as they really love each other! *** This dog is being fostered in Maryland. All things considered, local adopters will be given preference. Applicants must be willing to drive to Ellicott City, Maryland (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt this dog.***.
