Sofie - Courtesy post

Sofie is a 1.5-year-old red and black long-coated pure bred, AKC Registered, German Shepherd. She is looking for a forever home because her current owner is disabled. She is unable to safely handle Sofie and provide her the training she needs. 

  • Sofie is a high-energy, goofy girl who loves to play. 
  • She likes being outside and will need at least 2 hours of high-intensity exercise each day. 
  • She is anxious and needs a steady routine with lots of consistency in handling.
  • She is very intelligent and needs mental stimulation to keep her from getting bored. 

Sofie, while currently in wonderful health, has been abused and neglected in the past. She is sensitive and needs a confident owner with previous German Shepherd experience. She is not an easy dog but she is loving and loyal, and she will be a wonderful part of your family - if you are willing to put in the time and training.

Sofie’s owner is actively involved in finding her the right home. She is in the Burlington, VT area, available to answer all questions and set up a time for you to meet Sofie.

Adopters with previous German Shepherd experience are encouraged to apply. Sofie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, gets along with dog savvy cats, and other dogs - preferring to play with medium to large breed dogs. 

This is not a VT Dog Rescue dog, but we are helping the owner with selecting a new home. Applications should be submitted through our website using the Adoption Application button below.
