Hello there, I'm Sofia! I am the absolute sweetest girl looking for a loving home to call my own. I can be very selective with the dogs that I choose to be friends with, and would not be a fan of living with another dog. However, when I'm out on walks, I do not bark or react to other dogs.

People are my favorite! I have yet to meet a person that I don't love, and I will show my affection with kisses and snuggles! I am fully house-trained and keep my kennel clean overnight too. And if you aren't sold on me yet, I also love to go out on hikes and for long walks with my people! I have never been around children, so a home with teens and up would be ideal. I cannot live with cats. I currently weigh 43 pounds.

If you are interested in meeting me, the lovely Sofia, or would like some more information, please call the kennel staff at (413) 447-7878 ext.126.

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
