Sophie... is a sweet and friendly lab/retriever x, about 8 months old, and she was surrendered to an Irish rescue along with her three sisters - all part of an unsold litter.

She’s a lovely-looking girl who gets on well with people and other dogs and will make a wonderful family pet.  She has not had much, though, and has never lived in a house, so will need someone that can dedicate to teaching her the delights of family life and can commit to training. 

UPDATE 8/4/08

A little bit more info on the girlie...  She’s very steady for a youngster - the kind of dog, we feel, that will want to be with you rather than legging it over the hills.   Unusually for us, we don’t think there’s any collie in her at all (don’t all rush at once, now...).  Two of her siblings are black and tan and we think she is possible a labrador/pointer x.  Although she has not had the chance to experience any home comforts, Sophie has never  experienced any abuse and should prove to be a gentle,  happy, well-adjusted young lady.

Sophie is vaccinated and spayed and will be arriving in the UK next week.

If you are interested in fostering Sophie, or in offering her a forever home, please email asap.

There will be  a minimum adoption fee of £125 for Sophie, which includes the £65 it costs to transport her from Ireland .
