|07/19/2014-Its almost time to find my wings! I am on the mend and looking for my forever home!
Meet Sophie! Sophie is a 10 month old blue super sweet, dober-girl with a broken rear leg. She is having surgery on 06/09/2014, TODAY, that will cost DRM close to 2 thousand dollars! Please consider supporting and/or sponsoring this pup. Her owners were going to euthanize her because of the break but DRM has stepped up to make sure this girl lives a long life. Please help us help her and donate to help offset her very expensive surgery. All donations are tax deductible for you, as we are a non-profit 501C3. Click on the paypal button on the front page of our web, or you can mail your donations right to our mailing address, but please specify "To help save Sophie and her broken leg!" We will send a receipt for your taxes! Thanks for helping us help Sophie and once healed, she will be available for adoption. Sophie is a lover and loves everyone, everything, cats, dogs and kids alike! This girl is so deserving of all our help! Together we can do something bigger and better than ourselves and right now Sophie needs YOU!
Thank you to all my supporters! Thanks to all of you, I had my surgery on 06/09/2014 and although I am sore, my foster mom says I am healing real nice. My broken leg is on the mend. I am getting a little antsy because I can't run and play like a puppy would really like to do. If you have any suggestions to keep a busy puppy, busy but quiet, please let me know! I am SO bored, I want to go-go-go, but I can't! After some quiet playtime with my foster mom, I am satisfied and able to nap, as long as its in my foster moms lap! I do love my crate to nap in though. My foster mom didn't latch the kennel correctly one morning for nap time, hehe, so when she came back downstairs I was outside my kennel watching her! She thought I was a magician! I have been leaving my stitches alone but I still have to wear that darn doggy cone! I can't wait till the day that goes away. My foster mom knows I have a big heart, and shes Ok with my big, long kisses, and rambunctiously wiggles I give her. I am very observant, following peoples movements and tracking what is going on when I am awake. I have a big bark and am a very confident dober-puppy. I do love my four legged foster brothers and sisters and would do well with other animals! Once I am all healed I will be searching for just the right owner to call my own!
Sophie here, I am sitting in my foster moms lap on July 4, because there are some loud sounds around. For the most part I am not too bothered by sounds- I do bark at the vacuum cleaner, but I don't leave the room. I am really feeling so much better these past few days, almost no limp at all! I even skip steps going up the stairs when I come inside!! But my foster mom makes me still only walk on leash outside. I look forward to the day I get to run again! It has been a month since I got here, and I am so ready!! She tells me mid July we get an update from the vet. Thank you for all of the stuffed kongs and elk antlers and stuffless, squeaky toys over the past month. I have been here for month and would have driven momma nuts if not for all the goodies I have to keep me busy!! Especially now that I am feeling better, and am full of lots of energy. When I do get to burn off some steam, I settle right down (in a lap preferably) and enjoy all of my toys. I love my foster mom and dad (see picture)! I love watching my people and greeting then whenever they enter the room! Big kisses and hugs for everyone, and If I can nudge someone to play with me or just sit with me, all the better! I do tear up my toys, leaving all the goodies on the floor for mom to pick up. And sometimes I will not give up a toy, when I really don't want to share. But this is not often.
I am a climber, once my leg is healed I might want to try agility! I am very agile, really smart, and really want to please my owner. I was fortunate enough to have some intensive training a few months ago, so I know my basic commands, and when I find my forever home I want to keep using them and learn more! I am getting lots of practice at healing and following my momma's lead, because all of my outside activity is only on leash right now. I do love dog parks and can't wait to go visit and play with other dogs again. I know I can make you look really good!!
