March: Sophie

Sophie “Potato” Jo Coleman Sophie is a 5 year old lab/pit/basset hound mix, according to the handy dandy DNA test recently performed on her. She’s incredibly sweet natured and is one of the best snugglers I’ve personally ever met.  Sophie unexpectedly joined the Coleman pack in September (a mere 5 months ago!) when the family that she had grown up with relocated to a place that they couldn’t take her and were faced with the possibility of surrendering Sophie to a shelter. No way!  So, Sophie inherited a pretty spoiled dog-brother and a very lazy, but very bossy cat-brother. Although Sophie and the cat both like to snuggle, Sophie seems a bit terrified when the cat tries to cuddle up with her.  Maybe someday… But she has been a wonderful addition, and she fits in beautifully! Sophie is still learning how to walk on the leash without pulling, but she enjoys hikes, walks and car rides. And naps.  She REALLY enjoys naps.  She’s still learning the value of a summer backyard (kiddie) pool party – but she’ll figure it out soon enough! Sophie has been coming to No Bonz since her transition to the Coleman home, and with the love and support of the No Bonz staff, Sophie has blossomed socially with the other awesome dogs at school – and rumor has it that she even has a boyfriend!
