We do not know how long she was living on the streets, but we think it was from a very early age. Maybe as young as a few weeks. But somehow she survived.
She survived by being as cautious and quiet as possible. When we took her in, she was so timid, she scrambled to the furthest corner, put her head against the wall and made herself small. We gave her space to show us the way.
In time, she came to trust her humans and seek out our attention. Now, there is nothing she loves more than a belly rub and a little attention and play. In fact, she is now so confident and so playful it is hard to imagine the pup from just a few weeks ago!
Sophia is a gentle soul and good with children.
