Meet Sophia

Sophia is a shy sweetie. Sophia is absolutely gorgeous and loves to run and play with other dogs but she has major trust issues with humans and kidney disease (we don't know why but her bloodwork reveals consistently elevated kidney enzymes which will require her to forever be on a veterinary prescription diet called KD to slow but not prevent the progression of her kidney disease, estimated food cost $150/month). Sophia is not aggressive in any way but does prefer to avoid human contact until she gets to know you and therefore is definitely a flight risk in new situations. Soph is crate trained, housebroken, very well behaved inside (although likes to chew on shoes if they are left out or empty the laundry basket if it is available) and she has yet to bark. She walks very nicely on leash but is easily spooked so a securely fenced in yard is a must.

A vet reference is required for adoption. Sophia is in foster care. If you are interested in meeting her, please complete an adoption application either online via the shelter's website, in person at the shelter's front desk making sure it is marked for the adoption counselors since Sophia is in foster care or can be returned via fax to 615-526-6658, again being sure it is put to the attention of the adoption counselors. Once your application has been received and processed, we will put you in touch with Sophia's foster mom to learn more.
