Bio: Sonja is the sweetest little 7 pound yorkie you’ve ever met. She loves everyone and her tail is always wagging. Sonja was found wondering around rural KY all by herself before she was picked up by animal control and taken to a shelter. What is amazing about Sonja is that she is blind. But it doesn’t surprise us that Sonja was able to survive on her own unable to see. Sonja can do pretty much anything any other dog can do. She finds her way around the house and yard with no problems; she enjoys exploring her surroundings and getting the lay of the land. She can go up and down steps, she can jump on and off furniture. Her favorite place to be is on your lap. Sonja is incredibly affectionate and loves being held and cuddled.
At 6 years old she is beyond all that puppy active, chewing shenanigans. She is calm and well behaved. She is content to be on your lap or curled up in a soft dog bed. She is not a yappy, we have yet to hear her bark. She is an easy dog to have around.
Sonja is fine with other dogs, she is happy to live peacefully along side of them but she is not the type to become overly playful with other dogs. She is fine with cats. Sonja is not quite housetrained yet but doing very well if taken out on a regular schedule. Sonja likes to roll over on her back for a good belly rub. Sonja arrived at the shelter very matted and had to be shaved down. Her third petfinder photo shows her gorgeous, silky coat when it was long.
Please don’t feel sorry for Sonja because Sonja does not feel sorry for herself. She enjoys her life and doesn’t see herself as anything but a normal dog. The only thing missing from her life is a permanent home and family that she can call her own.
