Pam & Sofie Amanda


Sofie came to live with us in 2006.  We knew the moment we met her that we were going to fall in love with this beautiful girl.  Sofie came to us from Lake Avon, Florida, and had her first airplane ride when she was 3 months old.

Sofie Amanda is a loving and gentle dog and has given others her compassion and attention for 10 years.  She loves the elderly.  We visited Crestview Nursing Home for 8 years.  Sofie also LOVES children.  After certification in the Pet Partners Program (formerly known as Delta Society) in 2008, we have been a part of the READ program, where Sofie “listens and encourages” children to read to her, both at our local libraries and elementary schools.  We currently READ with children at Garner Elementary, in North Liberty, Iowa, 2 days a week, do Stress Relief at the University of Iowa,  and answer various requests from our community.  SOFIE and I feel blessed to be able to do the work we do!!
