The sweetest lil’ girl, Sophia!

Hello there! My name’s Sophia and I’m a 3 year old, spayed female Schnauzer-Terrier mix, at about 25 lbs. I came to TAP in September from the Ensenada shelter determined to find a loving family to call my own. I’ve got the cutest scruffy coat and I only shed a little bit. I am fully bathroom trained and a great walker on a leash, and I’m very well behaved in the house–no shoe stealing here! I’m a smart girl and working on other tricks too, like sit, down, wait, and shake.

Not only am I smart, but I am mellow and sweet, and I give great kisses! I can be a total weirdo sometimes and army crawl down the hallway (if it makes you laugh then I’m more than happy to do it again and again!). One of my favorite places to go is the beach, I’m a sun worshipper and I love the water! Although, my favorite activity is hanging out with my people and cuddling with them (they don’t call me a world-class cuddler fur nothin’). I have a total terrier personality–friendly, confident, loyal and feisty! I love to play and am friendly with dogs big and small, but initially may come across as a bossy lady. I just want to be the top dog! I’ve done fine at the dog park in the past and my foster brother loves me, but slow introductions with other dogs are best, and sometimes I’m a little too interested in nearby dogs when we’re on leash. Within the past few months, I’ve gotten so much better building my social skills and other dogs enjoy hanging out with me. I haven’t spent much time with kids, but I’ve met a few around town and liked them fine, so I probably wouldn’t mind living with them (especially if they played fetch with me!). I haven’t met cats yet though. I just want to make my people happy and have a good time!

I will do well in pretty much any home where I’m getting lots of love. I’d be so excited if my people keep working on learning new tricks with me and helping me make new dog friends. I could be the only dog or have more canine companions as well. My adoption fee is $300 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
