Dit mooie wolvenmeisje, Sofia genaamd, is door een vrijwilligster gevonden op een bouwterrein. Ze heeft haar ondergebracht in een asiel en daar heeft ze enige tijd doorgebracht. Na wat omzwervingen is ze nu in opvang bij die vrijwilligster. Al snel bleek dat Sofia duidelijk leiding nodig heeft. Ze is energiek, loyaal, aanhalig en baasgericht. Soms heeft mevrouw wel bananen in haar oren en moet er weer even met haar geoefend worden. Het valt ook niet mee om je tussen negen honden staande te houden en de nodige aandacht te krijgen. Ze heeft al maniertjes gevonden om deze aandacht op te eisen. Ze is duidelijk geen beginnershond maar een prachtige uitdaging voor iemand met geduld en ervaring met ‘wat eigenwijze’ honden. Uw geduld zal zeker worden beloond want ze heeft een ontzettend trouw en lief karakter.
Houding tov volwassenen: Goed. Ze heeft een open karakter en gaat onbevangen op mensen af. Ze verstaat de kunst om iedereen om haar pootje te winden.
Houding tov kinderen: Goed. Zeker met wat oudere kinderen.
Houding tov andere honden: Goed. Ze speelt met reutjes en teefjes en kan zeker als tweede hond worden geplaatst. Ze heeft daarbij in het begin wel wat begeleiding nodig omdat ze haar voerbak zeker beschermt – niet zo gek als je je kostje op straat bij elkaar hebt moeten scharrelen.
Houding tov katten: Bij voorkeur een omgeving zonder katten. Ze zal katten niets doen maar is wat opdringerig naar ze.
Kan alleen zijn: Goed. Ze is gewend aan de bench en dat is zeker aan te bevelen. Zodra er mensen in de buurt zijn kan ze uit de bench en scharrelt dan graag door het huis.
Autorijden: Goed. Sofia weet dat een autoritje betekent dat ze iets leuks gaat doen.
Gezondheid: Sofia is gevaccineerd, gechipt, gesteriliseerd en heeft een dierenpaspoort.
Voorkeur woonomgeving: Gezien haar energieke karakter heeft een huis met een tuin de voorkeur.
Voorkeur adoptanten: Sofia vraagt veel aandacht en loopt over van energie. Ze is geschikt voor mensen met ervaring die tijd aan haar besteden en duidelijk grenzen geven aan Sofia. Ze is geen beginnershond maar een leergierige dame die inmiddels ook al enkele commando’s kent en zonder trekken netjes mee loopt aan de lijn.
De adoptiebijdrage voor Sofia is 350,00 euro. Voor dit bedrag heeft u een prachtige, lieve, unieke en mooie hond die ook nog eens gechipt, gevaccineerd en gesteriliseerd is. Dit is inclusief de reis van Moskou naar Nederland en de bijdrage voor de verplichte veterinaire controle.

7. The history of the dog
About the former life of Sofia nothing is known, except that she lived on a construction site with workers. The volunteer got acquainted with the dog when she ran on the playground and played with the children. Throughout the species it was clear that the dog was abandoned. For several days people asked to take the dog and under pressure of a huge squall of calls from “good neighbors” the volunteer gave in and took Sofia. First time the dog moved to the shelter, where she lived in an enclosure with 2 males and a bitch. In general, all were friends, they played cheerfully and were very happy when the “good-aunt” came and gave “yummies”. The only thing that was complicated with Sofi was feeding. The dog remembered what hunger is and therefore guarded the bowl and tried to take the food from the others. I had to feed her separately. So passed the winter and spring, and in summer the dogs moved to another place. There, Sofi lived in an enclosure with a dog. Lived amicably, problems in communication were not, except for the problem with food, she stayed, fed the dogs separately from each other. It took another six months and only in the spring, the volunteer took Sofi back to her home. Now Sofia lives at foster place with her volunteer.
That’s it, it all started – getting to know the “special dog”! Sofi was extremely sociable, mobile, noisy, cheerful, energetic, active, bustling dog. The dog did not understand how to behave, badly obeyed and simply went crazy, demanding every minute attention and care. Such a miracle went to the volunteer and from that moment every day Sofia passed in strict training, sometimes with high demands. And what to do, you need to somehow bring her to the senses.
What can you say about this girl. She, however, is very kind, affectionate and a good dog. Loves people, both men and women, behaves well with children, treats all dogs well. Yes, some dogs can alert her, she can raise the withers and “under the growl,” but to start a fight – no. True, this dog needs authority – the owner, the main one, the one who needs to obey. This she understands and knows how. Therefore, even if Sofia reacted unfriendly to the dog, the team “Fuu …””, a severe shout by name quickly sober her. It will not start a fight, but it will move away from the animal. Another thing is with cats. It can be reliably said that “in her past street life” she used to drive cats, for them they are at least toys that they need to catch up with. But in this matter, Sofi can be trained. In the apartment where she lives, live cats – “fighting cat Zyuzya” and “humble cat Margo.” Also recently arrived cat Felix, who knew dogs from the “bad side”. So, Sophie clearly understands that “fighting cat Zyuzya” – the hostess in the house, yes, yes, it’s the mistress in the house. Therefore, after several approaches to Zyuzya and getting her “legitimate bumps” from her, the dog lost all interest and does not notice the cat. There is a feeling that they “agreed” and simply ignore each other. There are no problems, you can safely leave them alone and are not afraid of “bad results”. Everything will be fine. Another thing is the cat Margosha. She is clearly afraid of the dog, and she, feeling this, is constantly watching her. Noises, demands to release from the cage, wants to communicate with her, reach out, sniff. Margosha gets used to Sofi, several times they talked together on the couch, Sofi met, sniffed and “pushed off” !!!!! Now she is watching the cat Felix. But he is also from the “fighting breed of cats”, so Sofia does not have much to shine here either. The main conclusion that can be made when watching this “circus” is important for Sofi to get a cat, sniff, so to speak, to get acquainted, can kiss, but will not eat … This is important, so you can accustom it to everything else. Another thing is the cat on the street, from Sofi’s lightning-fast reaction and the desire to catch up. The truth is that she is not allowed to do this, and is strictly suppressed. So after this reading we would prefer to find for her a family without cats. Because it takes time to get used to each other, so better without cats.
Regarding the general behavior of the dog, Sofia lives in a cage. When it is released, it pleases, jumps on the sofa, plays with other dogs that live in the apartment. An hour or two after the bustle, she can calm down and lie down with a volunteer in an embrace and fall asleep. She sleeps like an “angel”, stretching out and taking a good part of the sofa. But the slightest movement, and she again on her paws and again fussing about the matter and without. She has everything to do, she has to be everywhere, she wants everything and absolutely brazenly gets to get it, while barking noisily, whining, stomping his paws, etc. in this dog so much energy that it can disrupt the volunteer. Strictly you can quarrel with her, she understands that the volunteer is not happy with her, that she does something wrong and therefore for some time calms down, calms down and tries to obey. Grabs her for a while, but a few hours of peace are guaranteed.
Which is good for Sofia. This dog is sure to need an active host who will take her on long walks, she runs well behind the bicycle, reacts calmly to the passing and passing. “The young lady” is very sociable, talkative, demanding attention and affection. She will be impudent, she will suck up, insist on communication, but with strict detachment she will listen and calm down for some time. However, then everything is new. So, this dog will take a lot of time from its future owners, it will not be boring with this “game”. Future owners should be patient and attentive to this “special school”. Over time, the dog will calm down, as soon as understands that it does not need to win the attention of the owner. That everything in its life has already developed and food, and the house, and the owner. At the same time she is very affectionate girl, always trying to climb on the handles, give her paw, kiss. Cuddling is ready all the time. Of course, this has a lot to do with her, she makes herself love. A very faithful and vain young lady is waiting for reliable friends to whom she will give a sea of caress, love and fun. I can not miss this beauty. It is full of energy, movement and enthusiasm. A 100% positive dog
