Sophie is cuddly, eager-to-please, playful, and submissive. And boy is she a looker, with a gorgeous coat and coal-lined black eyes and a gray speckled tail to boot! She is house-trained: as long as you give her enough time to do her business outside, she shouldn’t have any accidents! She loves doggie beds and head rubs and cuddles.

She still hasn’t quite outgrown puppyhood, so she does have some mischievous tendencies, like stealing shoes and taking them to her bed (very little chewing though!) and jumping up to tables if she smells food. But a gentle reprimand does the trick and she is quickly her submissive, eager-to-please self again!

She is a little skittish around cars and other motorized vehicles, so she will need some training to gain confidence on walks outdoors, but she is already really great on a leash and loves to smell all the smells on her walks. She seems to do well with other dogs, and will be happiest in a home with lots of human love and attention.

Sophie‘s adoption fee of $350 includes a vet exam, current vaccinations and heartworm preventative, a heartworm test, spay surgery, and microchip.

If you live in the Austin area and are interested in meeting Ophelia, please go to and fill out an adoption application. We will get back with you shortly.

Please be aware that we rarely have information about cat compatibility as most of our foster homes don’t have cats. Adoption decisions are based on the best overall match and not done on a first-come-first-serve basis.
