THIS IS SOPHIE…a precious, tan/white, happy-go-lucky, 5 yr old Cockapoo.  We could not understand how a beauty like this angel could end up in the South Central Shelter — until we learned that she had a huge, egg sized bladder stone inside of her (see below)! The vet says she has healed nicely and while she is on a special food for now, he expects a full recovery without a repeat performance! Struvite stones are caused by bacteria and don’t return with proper care.

Ulaney StoneSophie is a very loving, sweetheart, good with everyone EXCEPT other dogs.  She is definitely trainable and she is extremely smart, but she doesn’t want to share her home with another dog!  If you are looking for a little lady who will sit at your feet or in your lap…or play with you endlessly, Sophie is your girl.  She will look at you dotingly, with her big brown eyes, to let you know how much she appreciates being your girl.  Sophie will bark to alert but she is not a yappy girl, just a happy one!  Does there happen to be a spare lap at your house for her to warm?


Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
