Personality: Sophie is very friendly and sweet. She is affectionate with people and plays well with dogs in all sizes. She is also playful and smart.
Coat: Sophie is currently shaved down and her coat will grow long. The distinguishing characteristic of the Sapsali breed is its long shaggy coat . The Sapsaree typically has long hair that falls over its eyes, much like the Old English Sheepdog. Because this breed has such a long coat, regular brushing and grooming is required to keep shedding to a minimum and to preserve the health of the coat.

Potty trained: She goes potty outside a few times a day.
