VIDEO: Dog of the week – Sophie

SENSITIVE Sophie loves company and just wants someone to hang out with.

The three-year-old female Staffordshire bull terrier needs a home with gentle owners and quiet surroundings.

“She is not comfortable in busy bustling town environments and would be better suited to an area without too much going on,” explains Tracey Rae, manager at Dogs Trust Shoreham.

“Her new owners will need to be around lots and have plenty of time to spend with her as she is unhappy being left on her own.”

It would be best if Sophie was only pet in the home. Once a trusting relationship has been built, Sophie will interact a lot more than is likely on the first few introductions.

Sophie is comfortable around children aged 13 and over, as long as they are calm natured.

A real water baby, Sophie loves to have a play and a splash about in paddling pools, and enjoys a roll in the grass, too. Having a garden to relax in would help and quiet walking areas will need to be found.
