New rescue

Sophie has become the designated welcome wagon for dogs that first come into Purple Heart Rescue and are nervous and scared. They bring them to our house and each has had the time of their lives with her. She has a knack of bringing them out of their shell.

Today was a new little guy, Mr. Wilson. He’s been in a terrible animal “shelter” for months. He’s been very reserved and scared so he came over today for a dose of Sophie. She immediately had him with a huge grin on his face, racing around playing! They kept going for almost 2 hours with short breaks in between! He has been afraid of people and had been kicked a lot before so doesn’t like going near feet. But while he was playing with Sophie she would now and then swoop over to lay on my lap a minute and rest and he’d follow her. So he was sitting on my lap too and getting belly rubs and hugs and loving it.

Makes me teary to see him they think today was his first time on grass he wasn’t sure about it at first but then he was rolling and rolling in it. Sophie even dropped one of her balls in front of him! She also goes to a juvie center and an elementary school with troubled kids and works her magic. <3

And it appears she has lost her head again in the last of these pics!

Sophie's gift with troubled/abused animals and people is wonderful, and you have really given her the tools to shine, Dee Dee. You are a terrific team.
