It’s hard to believe this perfect little girl had such a tough start in life. Sonya lived in a cage at a puppy mill. But no more breeding for this little beauty, she is learning to live the life of luxury.
Sonya is very eager to please and likes to show off all of her new skills like “sit” and “stay.” After a morning of hard play in the yard, she goes into her crate, all on her own, and takes a nap on her pillow with the door open. She tucks herself in at night too, when she is ready to go to sleep.
When Sonya wakes up in the morning she is so happy to see her humans, she does the kidney-bean walk all over the house. She likes her toys and is very gentle with them. She does not chew on anything that does not belong to her.
Sonya is wonderful with children, and because she is on the smallish side she does not knock over the little ones! She is good with other dogs also. She is shy with adults when she first meets them, but it really does not take long before she is placing her paw in their lap inviting them to pet her.
Because this kind of life is so new to Sonya there are still some things she needs more practice with, like walking on a leash and eating from a bowl not the floor, but she is making progress every day.
