Your Next Best Friend: Sophia

I was named for Sophia Loren; the folks at RAWL wanted me to feel beautiful. I was abandoned, lost almost half my normal weight of about 80 pounds, and had some nasty eye problems. I’m a female cane corso, also known as an Italian mastiff, and am 4 years old. I am a gentle dog, well-behaved and affectionate. I’m ready to go to my new home and enjoy a life where I will never know hunger, lack of medical care or an absence of love again.

This week, two of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Rd., Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit
