Sophia has found a new home! Thank you to all who expressed interest in this lovely AireGirl.
Eight-year-old Sophia, whose name means “Wisdom”, is seeking a new home. This is a very friendly, really happy, good-natured girl who appears to like men, women, children and dogs of all sizes.
Sophia is a healthy, 68 pound, 24” tall Airedale with a soft coat. Apparently, she has learned some “wisdom” during her life since she is fully house-trained. She is not destructive in any way and is never crated when her foster mom leaves her alone. In fact, Sophia is not especially fond of crates and much prefers to nap on the dogs’ sofa in her present foster home. We note that this clever Airedale avoids the living room furniture and family beds!
Sophia has good recall and walks nicely on leash although she will pull when she wishes to greet a chance-met dog. She is extremely social with other dogs and will initiate play with the foster home’s two male Airedales as well as with visiting dogs. She knows her name and basic commands such as COME and SIT. Her ability to tolerate cats is unknown.
Because she is a little overweight, Sophia is on a slightly reduced diet. She is fed an excellent grain-free kibble along with cooked eggs, yogurt and a few supplements. Her preferred new home would continue this diet until Sophia’s weight is more controlled.
Like most Airedales, Sophia has a small quirk. Occasionally, she will reject the offer of a walk for no apparent reason. We assume that this behavior must be tied into unknown past experiences of some sort and will be overcome in time with patience and understanding.
We like Little Miss Wisdom a great deal. We think she is one of the nicest Airedales we have been asked to rehome in quite some time.
If you would like more information about Sophia who is available to adopters in southwestern BC, please contact Maureen Scott. As with all of our placements, a completed application form is necessary as well as a home visit.
