Dogs available for adoption
Alexi is 2 yrs old Chihuahua, very sweet and not really vocal in the right environment. Was feeding off his previous owner's anxiety. He is now very sociable, sweet, affectionate, in general, a good dog. He's in very good health. Needs structure, some work on house training and an alpha owner (a calm and confident leader). Has leash aggression with dogs, but good off leash with most. He is crate-trained. Alexi is smart, eager to please and very engaging. Alexi would do well in a peaceful home with someone that knows the breed well and is willing to work on his continued training. If you think you're the ideal person to offer Alexi a loving forever home and you're ready to commit to his well-being for the rest of his life, please download our adoption form located on our web site under "forms" at www.sophiesdogadoption.com asap!

Hi there! My name is Boris. I'm a 5 yr old long-haired Chihuahua and I weigh 5 lbs. I'm a super sweet, happy-go-lucky little pooch. I'm very tiny and delicate so I need to be handled gently. I'm super loving and love to be close to my human. I whimper a little whenever I'm away from you. I was in pretty bad shape when SDA first took me in. I needed 15 teeth extracted! My mouth is much better now thankfully. I also have luxation of the patella which is common in my breed so keeping me at a healthy weight and providing me with excellent nutrition and daily mild exercise is a must. I can get around just fine but this condition is something to keep in mind as I age. I'm house-trained. I don't use pee-pee pads but I certainly could learn. I enjoy going on walks a great deal however. My ideal human should be a retired person who is home a lot or someone who would enjoy taking me to work with her/him. I'm a total love-bug and lap dog. I love to be in your arms and shower you with kisses. I'm a wonderful companion and very engaging. I bond quickly with my human. If you think I'm the perfect pooch for you and you're ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, please download the adoption request form located at www.sophiesdogadoption.com under "forms" asap. Don't waste time just writing in to see if I'm still available. If you're seeing this bio, that means I'm still available. ;)

Hello there! My name is Lucy. I'm 2 yrs old and weigh about 55 lbs. I was originally "rescued" by my current owner when I was about 4 months old. I lived in a crate 12-14 hours a day and was never socialized. I was quite neglected. Since then, I've been given a whole lot of care and love but my human finds me too much of a challenge for her because, despite all of her efforts, I'm still a very anxious girl especially around strangers. She decided to contact SDA to help find me a more suitable home. Sophie and her canine expert friend Raymond came by to evaluate me and they deemed that I have great potential. I just need the right human to continue working on my anxiety and provide me with plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. A calm, confident leader with a good understanding of canine behaviour is what I am seeking. I'm good with the 3 dogs in my home but I'm not always so great with unknown dogs. I lack social skills in that area. I am full of wonderful qualities. Typical to my breed, I am extremely loving with my humans, love to play, enjoy going on walks and cuddling. I've received my basic obedience training so I don't need any extra work in that area. If you think you're the ideal human for me and you're ready to commit to my well-being for the rest of my life, please fill out the adoption form located at www.sophiesdogadoption.com asap!

Hi there! my name is Mila. I'm a super duper pooch but I do have an issue with other dogs. I become very reactive whenever I'm out on walks and see other dogs. I'm quite vocal so I draw attention to myself. This is my only issue. Other than that, I'm a fantastic girl. I'm very sweet and loving as well as playful and bright. I would do well in a home where the human(s) are active and have a good understanding of canine behaviour. Structure and steady training will help me in becoming less reactive. It's not my fault I was never socialized around other dogs when I was a puppy. I am eager to please however so there is hope for me. I have a high prey drive so no small pets for me please including cats or small dogs. I'm a German Shepard mix. 2 years old and I weigh about 65 lbs. If you think you have what it takes to provide me with what I need and you're ready to commit to me for the long haul, please fill out the adoption form located at www.sophiesdogadoption.com
