Adopt an animal

Sofia

Age: 8 years approxSex: FemaleBreed: Chihuahua

Found their forever home!

Sofia came to the centre as an unclaimed stray via the local Dog Wardens, she is a sweet dog but is very fearful of people she does not know. Once the time has been taken for her to get to know you, she is a very affectionate girl whose favourite place is sitting on your knee for cuddles, she will literally curl up and fall asleep on you.

Sofia will need understanding adopters who will help her overcome her insecurities, she has been in foster with a member of staff and she has improved so much but still has a little way to go. Unfortunately she does have a habit of chasing bikes and scooters and will bark at them, again work has been ongoing to help with this and she is improving.

Sofia will need adopters who will allow her to be on the furniture and go to bed with them, she just loves being with her people so much. Adopters will need to do a few meet and greets with her so she can build a bond with them before taking her home. Sofia shares her foster home with other dogs and a cat at the moment but careful introductions will need to be done if she is to live with another dog.

Sofia will need an adult only home with adopters who have a quiet lifestyle, she will not be suitable for a busy home environment. 

DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF APPLICATIONS WE ARE RECEIVING, IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD BACK FROM FROM US WITHIN 2 WEEKS IT MEANS UNFORTUNATELY YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL THIS TIME FORTHIS DOG. SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS WILL BE INVITED TO THE CENTRE TO MEET HER.

My personality...

I can be left alone for short periods

I need an adult only home

I’m small but full of fun

I may be able to live with another dog

I love fuss and attention
