Sofia, shepherd mix

Did you know that Julia Child served in the OSS (think CIA) before she was a famous chef? Imagine. Intrigue, secrecy and travel all wrapped up in filo dough.

Did you know that Sofia loves the water and would probably enjoy lakefront living? Imagine. Yes, we were surprised too.

And while Julia Child was sort of like a spy, Sofia is sort of like a perfect dog. Her only issue, truly, is being shy and fearful in some new situations. But we've seen her at her best—running free with a group of other dogs, happy and engaged. Just this week, two volunteers surprised Miss Sofia with a trip to the park. And it gets better—the park had a lake. And it gets even better—Sofia rushed right into the water all the way up to her elbows. And the volunteers are convinced that Sofia grinned with happiness.

Sofia, shepherd mix

This 2-year-old healthy and athletic mixed breed is brimming with fine qualities. She is neat and clean and doesn't chew inappropriately and retrieves tennis balls and sits like a lady and has a gentle mouth when fed treats and patiently waits for her dinner and is happy to lean into you for some affection. Whew, that's a lot of fine qualities.

Primarily, what Sofia needs is someone to assure her that they're in charge and she can relax on a walk. And then go home to play, rest, eat, snuggle, and sleep in the bosom of a loving family. Training and guidance will polish this gem of a dog.

Just like a bride in an arranged marriage, Miley is off the market. This lovely gal is now in the perfect home, spreading good cheer, lovely manners and substantial affection to her family. She goes with our fervent wishes for everything good that life has to offer.

Three dogs in need of rehoming have come to our attention: a small adult female border collie mix; a young female blue nose pit bull; and a very large male Rhodesian ridgeback/hound mix. As a courtesy, we will be posting these dogs on our website with brief profiles provided by their owners, and photos when available. Please visit our dog page for more details.

While our census fluctuates all the time, the needs of the dogs in residence remain the same. They don't know—or care—if there are two dogs or 10 dogs at the shelter. They want and need your attention during every shift. Because we are open twice a day, seven days a week, we can always use volunteers who can handle dogs, especially large dogs. Some shifts are more sparsely staffed than others. If you can give us a couple of hours—or even one hour—one day a week, that will go a long, long way to helping these dogs thrive.

We are at the shelter Monday through Saturday from 10 AM to noon; Sunday from 3 to 5 PM; and Monday and Thursday afternoons from 3 to 5.
