Another Adoption Success Story

Tuesday, October 27th, 2020

ZOPHIA’S ADOPTERS ORIGINALLY came to HSSA with their hearts set on a different dog. But the couple, Ismaly and Carlos, became discouraged when the dog they thought would be the newest member of their family had a negative reaction to Carlos’ wheelchair. After discussing the situation with an adoption counselor, Ismaly and Carlos agreed to meet Zophia.

“The moment they brought her up to us, she was filled with excitement and happiness towards both of us. After playing with her a while, we knew she was going to be a great fit.”

Zophia spent more than 4 months at HSSA. She was difficult to place because of her reactivity towards other dogs. But that didn’t matter to Zophia’s new parents. Zophia is loved and adored just the way she is, and is even getting along better with other other dogs. Ismaly says, “When we first brought her to our home, she made it hers right away. She explored all our rooms and just hung out with us from the start. I have nothing but great things to say about her transition. She brings us so much excitement and is friendly with everyone she meets. We thought we would be doing a good thing by adopting a dog that was given up, but we had no idea what a blessing she would be to us.”
