Wouldn’t you love to come home to this smiling face every day? Meet Sophie, our Adoptable Dog of the Week. She’s an adult American Pitbull Terrier from Peoria, Illinois. Sophie is already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Sophie’s Tale:

My name is Sophie, but sometimes my foster parents call me Bunny because I’m so cute and my fur is really soft! I am 4 years young and had a rough start to life, but I’m ready now for my forever home.

I’m a pup that knows a few things, like how to sit, shake, down, leave it, stay, drop it, and I’m working on sit pretty (wow, I’m pretty smart)! I’m crate trained and potty trained, too. I am working on keeping all my feet on the ground when I say hello, so kids over 10 would be best. I took a few agility classes and really fell in love, so maybe that is something that we could do together? I really love to cuddle with my foster brothers so a calm, male canine companion would be great for me 🙂 Are you ready to meet me yet?!
