Dogs available for adoption
Hi there! My name is Biscotti. I'm a 4 yr old female Boxer in excellent health. I'm a very sweet and loving girl but because I'm no longer getting along with the other dog in my home, my owners asked Sophie to take me under her rescue and help me find my ideal home. My issues with other dogs are easily correctable with the right training. A calm and confident leader is what I require as well as daily exercise, mental stimulation, structure and stability. I'm very bright and eager to please. With the proper guidance, I will learn to be a balanced and respectful pooch towards other dogs. I just need to see that I'm not the boss...you are. I did really well with Sophie's evaluation. In fact, she found me absolutely charming and easy to train. It's all a question of leadership. If you know and love my breed and you're ready to become my forever human(s), please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and fill out the adoption form.

Hello everyone! My name is Choupette. I'm a 14 yr old Shih-Tzu with cataracts, almost deaf and I have kidney issues according to the vet of the folks who had me before as well as a hernia. I'm doing pretty darn good for a sweet old gal my age despite these issues. I still have a lot of love left to give. My beloved human passed away recently and I stayed with her lifeless body 2 days before she was found. My life was turned upside down all of a sudden but I still continue to be the loving sweet pooch that I've always been. I went to live with family for 18 months but did not get along with their dogs. According to them, I'm dominant with other dogs. I'm now looking forward to a nice retirement where my new human(s) will take me on shorts walks, snuggle up with me on the couch and keep me looking pretty and feeling happy. I'm extremely easy-going and happy-go-lucky. I made myself at home immediately when Sophie brought me to my foster home. If you'd like to give me that beautiful retirement I seek, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and fill out the adoption form.

Hi everybody! My name is Dame Ruby. I'm a very elegant 2 yr old Doberman in excellent health. I weigh about 55 lbs. My humans simply adored me from the moment they adopted me last December 2015 from the SPCA. They had to make the very difficult decision recently to re-home me due to the fact that I sometimes fight with the other resident over food and toys. It's called resource guarding (RG). With a new baby in the home, they became very concerned of what might happen. They worked with a trainer and my issue of RG was drastically reduced. They felt that, despite my major improvement, I was still a potential danger to the baby since I had also shown RG over the baby's toys. Now let me tell you all the great things about me....I'm very well trained, know all the basic commands, I'm bright and eager to please. I'm extremely affectionate and engaging, very loyal and devoted to my humans. If you know my breed well, you know how seriously we take protecting our family. My new humans should provide me with regular daily exercise, structure and stability. I'm quite the athlete so think of me as your ideal work-out partner. There are lots of fun activities we can do together that will benefit us both mentally and physically. Being exercised will also help reduce any separation anxiety I may have when left home all alone. I have a little bit of my lower lip missing which gives me an adorable goofy look. I was like that when brought to the SPCA. If you think we'd make a great team and you have the knowledge required to make me a happy and balanced girl, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and fill out the adoption request form.

Hi there everybody! My name is Martin. I'm about 7 years old, weigh around 18 lbs (need to lose a few) and I'm a male. Since I was found as a stray and brought to the local pound, there is no history on me nor what breed I might be so we're going with Terrier mixed with Cutie and Patootie! I have the beginning of cataracts in both eyes but can get around with ease. My vision is not impacted at this time. My teeth are also pretty good. Only my back teeth have a bit of tartar on them. I sure love to eat. I'm very food motivated so keep that in mind please. Sophie's got me on a very healthy diet designed to help my bladder health as well as my oral health. Now about the good stuff...my personality! If you don't mind me tooting my own horn, I'm a pretty darn charming little fellow. My ideal forever home would be living with a retired person or couple. It's not that I dislike other dogs but it's clear that I prefer to be the only pooch. I could be happy living with another dog that is submissive and easy-going. I have not been tested with cats. I would not be ideal to live with young kids because I'm not too fond of having my neck touched. I like a quiet and peaceful home. I absolutely love the outdoors so don't be shy to take me on nice long walks with you. I'm house-trained, can stay home alone, not much of a barker and my energy level is medium. If you think I'm the ideal companion for you, please download the adoption request form located at www.sophiesdogadoption.com asap!

Hi there everybody! I'm Monkey, I'm a Bulldog/Boxer/Lab AKA a Heinz 57 male who was born the runt of the litter in my old home in April 2016. All the puppies were quickly sold away to people but I remained because my back legs were lame and nobody wanted me. That's how I ended up with SDA. I saw Sophie's vets and was sent to the DMV for x-rays which showed that I have a significant scoliosis as well as 2 or 3 fused vertebrae. The neurologist explained that surgery is not an option however. Physiotherapy and regular follow-ups are what's best for me at this point. Thanks to excellent nutrition, the loving care of my foster home and sharing my space with balanced dogs, cats and kids...I am a pretty well rounded puppy despite my health issue. I'm able to get around just fine but I hop like a bunny when I run (see video). I cannot control my bowels due to my compressed spine but I have no issues with urinating. I am house-trained when it comes to pee-pee time. Here is what my foster home had to say about me: "He's very affectionate and playful. He's used to big and small dogs, cats and love the kids. He's very smart! He learns quickly. He eats in his crate and sits and waits until we give him the OK command. He settles very well in his crate both at night and during the day" Monkey will probably not weigh more than 20 lbs once fully grown. His future human(s) should have good puppy training experience. If you think Monkey is the ideal pup for you despite his special needs, please fill out the adoption form located on our web site at www.sophiesdogadoption.com

Reggie is a 2 year old Chihuahua mix. He is in excellent health, vaccines are up-to-date and has been sterilized. Reggie is the perfect lap dog and just loves cuddling on your lap or right next to you. He is very affectionate and loving. He also loves going for walks and gets very excited when you get the leash. He is nervous around new people but adapts quickly once he knows there is no danger. He is a little nippy around bigger dogs, but again is adjusting now to living with a Pitbull in his foster home. Reggie is a great dog for adoption. If you are interested in giving Reggie a furever home please complete the adoption forms at Sophie's Dog Adoption. http://www.sophiesdogadoption.com

Hello there! My name is Shiny. I'm a 4 year old Labrador Retriever mix in excellent health. I'm a big boy weighing 110 lbs. I was originally adopted at the SPCA when I was still a puppy by a retired couple in their golden years. According to them, they were told that I would weigh about 40 lbs once fully grown. Had they known IMd get so big, they would have chosen a smaller dog. Here we are about 4 years later and I'm just too much dog for them to handle. They sure love me a lot and it took them a very long time to come to the decision of re-homing me. I'm an energetic pooch so daily exercise and mental stimulation are a must for me. With the right handler, I will be much easier to train. My social skills right now are not so good. I'm dog reactive when on leash, I am unsure with strangers at first and I have a pretty high prey drive when I see cats, squirrels and other small animals. My ideal human (s) will need to be familiar with my breed, active and well-versed in canine psychology. I have a lot of great qualities too of course. I'm very bright and eager to please. I'm sweet and engaging with my people and I love to play. Typical to the Lab, I also love the water. If you think I just might be the ideal pooch for you, please go to www.sophiesdogadoption.com and fill out the adoption request form.
