Sophie – Therapy Dog
The four-and-a-half year old black lab from Tennesee was adopted by her owner through Double Dog Rescue and it was love at first sight. Sophie is one happy dog who loves to walk in the woods, swim at the beach and most especially put a smile on someone’s face when she is visiting schools, colleges, nursing homes and letting kids read to her at the library. She loves to ride in the car with her family and the destination is not important as long as she can go. Sophie has become a great friend and role model to her new family pet Rusty, an Australian Shepherd from Alabama and another Double Dog Rescue success story. Rusty has been getting comfortable with a working dog role and may one day also be joining Sophie more formally to support Cohasset Working Dog Foundation in the future.
