Animal rescue: New pure bred pinscher now part of the family


My family adopted a rescued puppy and named her Sophie. I found her on, which has pets from local humane societies and shelters. My dog came from Jack’s Place which is about 50 miles North of Clarksville in White Plains, KY.

I haven’t had a dog in a long time. She is already part of the family. It only took two minutes for her to know she is lower in the pecking order than our 10-year-old cat Rose, but they’re starting to get along.

Someone abandoned or ‘dropped’ Sophie out in the country, despite her being a pure bred miniature pinscher. Most dogs left this way die from starvation. Bob and Christine operate Jack’s Place and are at their maximum capacity with adoptable dogs and cats. If you have room in your home and heart and would like a dog or cat, try before you purchase a pet. Ninety percent of pets taken to animal shelters are euthanized; there are just too many of them.

The kindest thing you can do for all dogs and cats is to have yours spayed or neutered. According to the Clarksville Humane Society, Clarksville kills over 90 animals a week because of over-population.
