Sophie ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

sophie Hi! I'm Sophie and I'm looking for a fun-filled, active home with a yard, lots of toys, and plenty of attention. It would be okay with me if there is another dog or two, as long as I get to be the boss. I'll sit on your lap and give you a kiss, but then I've got important stuff to do. Wanna play tug??

Sophie is an active young girl, around 2 years old, who was liberated from a shelter. She is a confident and playful dog with strong terrier behavior. Although she is bright and responsive, she has never been taught the basics that every dog should know. Her new family will be expected to take her to obedience class. She is house broken, and has had no soiling errors in her foster home. She sleeps quietly in a crate at night, but would probably prefer the bed. She likes riding in the car.

Sophie's ideal home would have a yard to play in and people who have time to play with her. She would not be a good playmate for a very young child, but an older child would be fine. She gets along with other dogs, but we think cats may not want her around. She needs an owner who understands that a terrier needs a firm, but kind, hand! Sophie weighs about 15 pounds. She will be spayed and up to date on her shots before she is placed.

We are looking for a wonderful, forever home for Sophie. She is in a foster home in southern California at this time. Preference will be given to local applicants. Sophie's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for her, and there will be an adoption fee or donation of $200.

If you have room in your home and heart for Sophie, please fill out an application and mention her name. The application is on-line at If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email Lyda at Silky and let her know you are interested in Sophie (please include your name and state so we can find your application in our files).
