Meet Sophia, a Rescue Puggle

Pictured on your left is Sophia, a 3-year-old, 22-pound female Puggle. This is a cross-breed between a Beagle and a Pug, and since we already have a pair of Puggles, there is no way I will be able to convince my wife that adding a third Puggle will make this a Puggle Triumvirate, a more natural balance in our Puggle world.

Anyways, Sophia is a warm and affectionate dog who will bring many years of companionship and laughter to the right home. She loves to run around the backyard and chew dog bones, and gets along well with our other dogs.

Sophie was an owner-surrender at an area dog pound due to family problems unrelated to her behavior. Personally, I would kick out the problem family members before I would give up a good dog like Sophie, but hey: every family is different. Sophie is a bit underweight, and 25-28 pounds would be around her ideal weight.

Sophie is not an aggressive dog, and gets a bit spooked when strangers come in, though she warms up pretty quickly. Her new owners will need to work on leash-walking, as she tends to pull, and we are also working with her to be less protective of her toys, as she is still learning to share with the other dogs.

Beautiful Puggle! My fiance and I were browsing pictures via google to see if we could find any matches and Sophie caught our attention.

We rescued our Puggle 2 years ago, her name is Tianna.
