Sofie - Sydney - Available for interstate adoption
Hi my name is Sofie and I am a very sweet, loving and energetic 4 ½ year old Labrador cross who is looking for love.
I absolutely love humans and get so excited meeting new people that I do like to jump up and kiss their faces. My foster family is working with me and I am slowly learning not to get so excited and wait as quietly as I can for them to say hello to me.
Whilst I love all humans I am not a lover of any other furry friends so I would love to be your one and only so that we can enjoy long walks together and maybe a trip to a waterhole where I can cool off on hot days. I am not fond of dog parks as all those other boisterous dogs running around make me a bit nervous so I would be happy never to go to one of those places again unless I can have the whole park to myself. I do love to get out and walk and run and I am really good at fetch so a well fenced big back yard for games would be fantastic. During my early morning walks I have come across lots of rabbits and ducks and I would love to chase them if I could and I thinks this would also be the same with cats and other small animals.
When I see other dogs whilst out enjoying my walks I can pass them quite calmly unless they first react to me or start yapping at me. That’s when I become reactive so it’s best just to move me along as quickly and calmly as possible. I have had some walks with another dog and I didn’t mind it too much as long as the other dog stayed calm and did not get too close to my space so walking with another dog would have to be at your discretion based on our initial re-actions to each other; however you should never leave us alone or off leash together. With the help and patience of my foster Mum my lead manners are improving everyday and she says I am a good girl and will definitely improve with more training and patience from my new family.
Speaking of family, I love adults and teenagers but I may be a bit much for small kiddies and toddlers. I would love an active family that do not have small children.
I may cry for a few minutes when you leave me alone but this is only because I love you and want you to come back and play with me. I am not destructive but will just sit and have a whinge for a few minutes. I do love a good chew on my toys and if I get a bit anxious I may start to chew something I shouldn’t (like my bed) but I am easily distracted from doing this by giving me something I am allowed to chew – empty plastic water bottles and rope toys are my favourites. I have only had one little chew on my bed when settling into my new foster home on the first night and since then I have not chewed on anything that I was not allowed to. I get a bit scared of loud noises such as lawn mowers / vacuum cleaners / thunderstorms / fireworks but as long as I have a safe place out of the way to go to I will be OK.
I just love being around humans so of an evening I am more than content to lie in my bed next to you or snuggle on the lounge with you for the rest of the evening. Likewise if you don’t have to leave home to go to work I am more than happy to follow you around or sit by your side all day until it is time to get up and get activewith some exercise and play time. I can use a doggie door and my food manners are good.
Well this pretty much sums me up and makes me who I am – I am quirky and unique but my foster mum says I am also an intelligent, sweet, loving and loyal girl. She also tells me I am really smart and I pick up new words and commands pretty quickly. With your further love, patience and training I will be an amazing companion for you.
Can’t wait to meet you!
