Sophie is an 8 year old female Akita. She is a wonderful, spunky, curious girl. My husband and I have had Sophie since she was 12 weeks old, and unfortunately are looking to rehome her because our toddler was attacked by a dog (not Sophie) and now is still dealing with the trauma from that and is scared of dogs in general. Sophie has always been great with our daughter, but I would recommend she goes to a home with no children and she does need to be the only pet in the home. She does not do well with other animals. She knows all of the basic commands and tends to do okay on a leash but she is use to a fenced in yard with room to run and play. We just want Sophie to go to a home where she has all of the attention and love she deserves and we just don’t feel like we can give her that with the circumstances in our home.
