Sophie | Pet of the Week

By on October 5, 2018 at 11:06 am


Sophie is a young Lab mix who is full of energy and loves to enjoy life!

She loves to play with her tennis ball or go for a brisk walk when the weather is nice. She also likes to play “hide and seek” with her treats — you throw them and she’ll find them the yard. She loves this game.

Sophie is looking for someone who can give a young dog the attention she needs so she can grow and mature into a forever family member.

This cutie also knows how to “smile” on command.

Sophie is a one-year-old labrador/doberman mix and weighs 80 pounds.

You can visit Sophie at the Helping Strays shelter.
