Sophia — Therapy
Sophia is a wonderful, half Rottweiler, half Black Lab rescue dog. She was adopted on Oct 26, 2018, after her previous owner passed away, from the Loving Paws Adoption Center, in Crocker, MO. After completing Obedience I, Obedience II, and CGC training at the K-9 Academy, in Rolla, MO, Sophia tested and became a therapy dog in Aug 2019. Before the Pandemic, Sophia completed 82 therapy missions at retirement homes, the Missouri Veteran’s Home, in St. James, MO, and Rolla Middle School (with an enrollment of over 1000 students). Perhaps her most valuable service was working Hospice at an area therapy center. Since the Pandemic, Sophia has visited Rolla Middle School several times, bringing smiles and happiness to the wonderful students, and took part in a “drive-by” parade at an area retirement center. We cannot wait for restrictions to be lifted and continue our busy schedule serving the community.
