Sophie came to the Town Lake Animal Center as a stray. She is a bit shy and tentative around new people.
Today's pet isn't 100 percent sure she understands what this "leash" business is, but she has a big, wide grin that she will show you once she is comfortable. She is pretty high energy and loves to play, including chasing balls.
She comes comes when called and her leash manners are improved with an EZ Walk Harness.
Sophie is affectionate and sweet with her new friends. When she feels safe, there's no problem getting her to snuggle. The perfect home for Sophie will be one with older children who can give her some space when she needs it. She hasn't met any cats yet.
If you have another dog, it's suggested you come to TLAC for a meet and greet to see if they will get along. Austin Pets Alive offers free behavioral assistance to help with getting her acclimated to domestic life.
Sophie is a fun, big-hearted girl who just hasn't been given the chance to see how a sweet a home can be. With a little patience and lots of love, she will easily be someone's best friend.
The Town Lake Animal Center is located at 1156 West Cesar Chavez St.
