Pet of the Week

Got a soft spot for seniors with greying muzzles and a twinkle in their eyes? Then you should meet me, Sophie, dog No. H38B.

I’m a 14-year-old lady with a big smile and an even bigger heart. I needed some work when I was brought to Maui Humane Society in early July, but thanks to the “Hope Fund” I’m feeling better than ever. Now I spend my days going for strolls with the volunteers, being a rockstar in playgroups and making all the two- and four-legged friends I can.

If you were to spend some time with me, I’m sure I can make you smile for many years to come, too.
