Sophie is very perticular about people, so a very experienced dog person (who she likes) is needed for her. (No Small children) She is approx 11 yrs old. Sophie has such a beautiful soft face, easy to fall in love with! She is a quiet girl most of the time, athough she lets certain strangers know they have to earn her trust. However, sometimes she loves you from the very beginning! She loves pets & cuddling. Sophie is a bit of a princess & wants to be the center of attention. She needs to be an only dog. Sophie needs a strong alpha leader & experienced basset owner.
