  • History:   Sophie is another Australian girl from Greyhounds as Pets, New South Wales.  She arrived in the U.S. on June 11, 2024 after a 15-hour flight from Sydney, and had a comfort stop at Pawhootz Pet Resort for the night.  Sophie has been completely vetted.   Her  dam is Zipping Annabel and her sire is Flying Ricciardo.   Sophie did not race (probably because she is so small).
     The handlers at Greyhounds as Pets said Sophie is quite the social butterfly.  She has become well accustomed to family life.  She loves to chase the ball and play with her canine friends. She has been around other Greyhounds, a Blue Heeler and her puppy and an Australian Bulldog.  Sophie is a happy girl and love human attention.  She is a tiny lass with a big heart and friendly nature. She was labeled a "superstar" around other dogs and a wonderful companion to adults and children.  She will need some time to learn to be a Texan but has a greyt start.
    Sophie was a little nervous at first, which is understandable.  There have been a lot of changes in her short life.  She was not particularly satisfied with the softness of her bed in the car on the way from the pet hotel.  She (unsuccessfully ) attempted to rearrange it but ultimately lay down.  She was introduced to the other Greyhounds in the household and was friendly with all of them.  She then retired to the bedroom for a nap by herself. 
    Sophie is a petite girl with a sparkling personality.  Sophie has a beautiful, shiny black coat - all black except for the white blaze on her chest.  We will update her bio as Sophie settles into her new life in the U.S.
