Sophia is a 1 year old chocolate lab/pit bull mix adopted from Labs & More Rescue where they originally rescued her as a stray from Mexico. Sophia is energetic but focuses wonderfully with training. She brings so much joy to our team (and anyone who meets her) with her big smile and warm hugs. We are so thankful to have her in our program and we know her future is bright!
Sophia’s adoption, care, housing, training and future placement with a veteran through our program was generously sponsored by Holli Lienau of HolliDay…Anyday!.
