Please meet Sophia! Sophia is a gorgeous Blue Heeler/Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd Mix who is only about 2 years old. Sophia came to Green Hills Animal Shelter in March. We don’t know much about Sophia’s history, but we do know that she appeared with another dog after being dumped on a farm in a rural area. Thankfully a kind person, realizing that they had been left behind, rescued them and brought them to the shelter.
Despite being left behind, Sophia is a happy girl who very much enjoys being with people. She is very sweet and very loving, and you can tell that she is genuinely thankful for the time staff and volunteers spend with her. Sophia is good with both adults and children, and we have discovered that she has a secret desire to be a lap dog, as when you sit down she will come right over and ask to get on your lap. Sophia is also good with other dogs, but as always we suggest that potential adopters bring along any other dogs in the home to make sure they and Sophia will be good buddies.
If Sophia could describe her perfect Forever Home, she would ask for a home where she could spend lots of time with her family. She prefers being outside and would ask for a home with a securely fenced yard where she could spend as much time in the great outdoors as possible. She would love a family who would take her on long, leashed walks and spend lots of time playing with her and enjoying her happy spirit. Sophia would be very happy in a home with children and other pets, but she does respectfully request a home without chickens or other feathered friends as they make her a little too excited.
Sophia will go to her Forever Home spayed, dewormed, heartworm tested, and up to date on all vaccinations, including rabies. She is such a sweet girl, and is guaranteed to fill her new home with happiness; could that home be yours?
For more information on Sophia or any of the pets waiting for their forever homes at Green Hills Animal Shelter, please phone the shelter at 660-359-2700 or stop by during open business hours. We will be looking forward to meeting you and to introducing you to your new best friend!
