Name and age of the dog: Sophie, 9 years
Nicknames: Soph, punkin
Adoption history: When I was volunteering for Dogs Without Borders, my 19 year old older cat died and I was ready for my first dog. Everyone pointed to Sophie and said she was the one. Nobody could have known that she would act as a medical alert dog and alert me on our first week together.
Sophie loves people most of all and her favorite time before COVID was when the kids left elementary school. I made sure I trained her first because she just can't resist!
She is my champion and has been with me for 8 1/2 years.
