Owner: Michelle Hahn

Location: Algonquin, Ill.

Dog Name: Sonny Bono

Age: 2

Breed: Mix

In a Word: Grateful

Job Title: We call him “The mayor.” 

Star Quality: He meets and greets everyone!

Best Bud: My husband, his dog dad Dave

Favorite Getaway: Our boat on Lake Michigan

Forgivable Flaw: Sleeping right between my husband and I every night with his head on my pillow. Ugh. No sleep for the weary.

Background Story: Sonny Bono was brought from a southern Missouri kill shelter to an Illinois rescue organization and put in foster care. We saw him listed during the early stages of the COVID pandemic, and we had just lost our dog to heart failure. It was love at first sight. He’s in his forever home and he knows it!!
