  Sophie, 4 years old Female Shepherd/Rhodesian Ridgeback  Mix

Sophie is a 4 yr old spayed female Rhodie/Shepherd mix. She has the very loyal traits and smarts of both breeds. She is crazy over tennis balls. She is 52 lbs, She came into rescue when her first owner lost his job and home. They gave her to some people that did not take care of her, as she was very thin, all of her ribs were showing. She has put weight back on and is now ready for a new family. Sophie is a pretty, mellow girl who is perfect in the house. Sophie is the name she has always had and she comes to her name. She was raised with children, they would lay on her, and she was truly a family dog. She went everywhere with them, camping, canoeing and always in the car on the go. She is very smart and if you set the rules she will follow. She knows sit, shake, and lay down, other basic obedience commands. Okay, here's the downside, which can turn off people who don't have Shepherd experience. She has barrier aggression and can be reactive on leash. Many many Shepherds have these issues and her advantage is that she has a trainer working with her on this issue. Because of this, we'd love for her to be an only dog. Sophie is such a great dog and has missed out on a few good homes because they have other dogs and we didn't want to take the chance. She needs a one on one owner who is going to be as devoted to her as she will be to you. She loves toys and plays fetch, she can jump and catch a ball 6 ft in the air. Sophie is a great dog, someone would be lucky to have her. She can be seen by private appointment at the trainer's in Mendon!
