Meet Sophia

Meet our darling girl Sophia!

Sophia is an angel who had a rough start to her young life. She was run over by a truck and dumped in a ditch. A good Samaritan rescued her and did three months of physio therapy which sadly did not correct her injuries. Once in our care, our vets felt the best option was to amputate the injured leg to prevent any further issues with the incorrectly healed leg and hip.

Sophia has such a sweet nature and loves to be around her humans. As Sophia is still young she has lots of energy and can be quite excitable which isn’t best suited around small children and she has been known to be quite jumpy/mouthy. Sophia LOVES her toys, particularly her stuffies, toys can be used to redirect her when she is a little mouthy. She is an active girl who will enjoy going for outdoor adventures with her new family. Sophia can make dog friends but will need continued work with slow introductions as she is very selective. It’s best her home has no other pets. She is food motivated and travels well in the car, she has even been in the car for a 100+ km trip down from the north!

Sophia needs a home that is willing to work on her training, she is eager to learn and will do well continuing with positive reinforcement training.

Do you think you could be Sophia’s person? Here are some ways to find out:

1. Visit our centre to meet this pet during viewing hours at 3202 Norland Ave, learn more about their ideal match and apply to adopt in person; or

2. Submit an online application and staff will contact the first suitable adopter to set-up a visit! Kindly note that due to the high number of applications and the availability of walk-in adoptions, an online applicant would have to be available to come in for a meet within 24 hrs.
