Physical Description: Sophie Grace is a beautiful blue-gray color with white markings including a small white tip on her tail. A true beauty, she is what some call a pocket pit--a petite, compact sweetie!
Personality: Sophie Grace is a loving, sweet-natured dog who really thrives being with her human family. She loves the two dogs she lives with and loves to wrestle with them. Sophie has a puppy-like personality, and is learning manners when playing with people and dogs, but listens well to verbal corrections. Two of her favorite things are going for walks and snuggling on the couch. Sophie is a medium-energy dog who doesn't require large amounts of exercise, and at 40 pounds, she is very easy to walk. Sophie also is still learning leash manners and has a bit of leash reactivity, so no on-leash introductions to other dogs at this time; but she does well with slow introductions in our house and yard. Sophie would thrive in a home with another dog who likes to play. Sophie knows how to sit and stay in place, and will come when called. Although she is housebroken, she needs a regular schedule to avoid accidents.
History: Sophie Grace was a long-time stray. She was captured by a local shelter just before giving birth to 10 pups. IAR brought her and her babies in, and they found wonderful adopters!
