Two years ago, we walked into a local shelter and saw many people leaving with puppies. When an attendant asked if she could help us, I said, "Show us the oldest dogs you have." That seemed to perk her up and she began our tour. I would have loved to rescue all of them but we could only take home one.
We ended up with this sassy senior, who just celebrated her 2nd Gotcha Day. Little Miss Sophie is now between 10-14 years old. When she came to us, she had kennel cough and bad teeth and needed surgery. Today, she's a happy little dog who loves walkies, car rides, snuggles, and treats. We're so glad we can make her final years happy and comfortable.
