Sophie - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from ROWDY RESCUE, Slaughters, KY.

I adopted Sophie right before Thanksgiving 2013. She had a rough life, starting first in a puppy mill where she was not groomed. Her hair mats grew into her left eye, causing her eye to hemorrhage. This resulted in the removal of her left eye and blindness in her right. She was led to believe at such an early age she would be mistreated throughout her life. She was passed around until surrendered to Rowdy Rescue where I found her! She was scared, timid, slow moving, and underweight. In just these five months she has come so far. She has gained a pound, her hair has thickened, and she is even going on walks with me!!! She is learning to trust and has become very comfortable in my home, jumping on the couch and cuddling on her blanket, because the three fluffy dog beds just don't suit! :-) She is a joy! I am so happy that she got a second chance at a happy life!
