Sophie Lou is a very special girl. She has been with SAAP since September 2017 looking for a family of her own. She came to us suffering from mange and even though she is healed up now, her hair will always be thin in some areas which makes her very low shedding!

Sophie Lou is a very petite pit bull mix weighing in at 30 lbs and standing less than 2 feet tall. She is a very active girl and will require an active family who will commit to daily walks, runs, or hikes to help her burn energy. She might be a great candidate for agility training!

Sophie Lou has gotten along with many dogs in her foster home but does seem to do better with dogs who are not extremely submissive. She would also do ok as an only dog as long as she got plenty of exercise. Sophie Lou requires proper introductions to new dogs and is not the kind of dog you can take to dog parks. Once she determines a new dog is her friend, they will be her friend for life but it can take time for her to get to that point. She adores puppies though so she would definitely accept a younger fur sibling!

Sophie Lou loves to run around in foster mom's fenced in yard but she would probably do best without a fence and leash walked only. When she is in the yard, she is very protective and will try to find a way to get to dogs/animals on the other side of the fence. If she does have a fenced in yard, it must be privacy fenced and Sophie Lou will still require supervision when outside.

Sophie Lou is housebroken, crate trained, and has been professionally trained to walk on a leash. She loves kids but should be around older kids who can handle her energy level (6+ years). No felines for Sophie Lou!
