Sophie is a 1-1/2 year old, 30 pound,
spayed female red Heeler.

Sophie is very energetic and smart. She loves to fetch a ball or play soccer with her Jolly Ball. Her herding ball is also a favorite.


She doesn't do well on walks in our busy neighborhood, and pulls when on a leash. She is house trained and crate trained, and has good house manners. She currently lives with a small male dog and a 7-year old boy and has no issues with either. She loves to play wrestle with them both. Sophie needs more space that we can offer her in our urban environment.


Sophie needs a large fenced yard, someone to play with her, or better yet, a job to do. She is reactive to other dogs and does not like strangers in the house. She can be a challenge, but also has many positives that will shine in the right environment.
