Pit Bull Terrier - Adult - Female
Adoptable Medium Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotshousetrained

Sophie previously lived in a house with many small dogs. She walks well on leash and adores people! She is a very sweet girl, approximately 5 yrs old. Sophie mostly ignores other dogs at our shelter, but we always encourage a meet and greet if you have another dog in your home. She doesn’t potty in her kennel at all (our dogs are sometimes kenneled for 20+ hrs/day) and she enjoys every moment of attention given to her. She’s a laid back girl seeking a home where she can receive more attention than she did in her previous life. Please let us know if your home could be the one! Sophie is so much more adorable in person than her pics show. She enjoys every head/chin/chest scratch and belly rub too. Please don’t overlook her due to her breed. She’s an awesome girl, just waiting for her forever home like so many others. Give her a chance and ask to meet her! UPDATE – please watch her video posted w/ our younger volunteers having her give paw and sit. It’s precious and so are those ears!

For adoption inquiries, please contact Kelly, our Adoption Coordinator, at or inquire directly via Petfinder. We are a volunteer-based humane society; please be patient with our response time to your inquiries. We are not able to assess dogs with cats since we are a small, rural shelter set up for dog intake only. We may be able to provide an opinion on how a dog may get along with cats, but behavior in your home is unknown until they would be properly introduced under supervision. For inquiries regarding a dog’s behavior with small children, the majority of our shelter dogs are unclaimed strays & we have limited or no history. We always recommend a meet and greet with our dogs available for adoption.

Taylor County is rescue friendly! If you are a rescue, please contact our Rescue Coordinator, Diana, at
