This is Hagrid, a 2-year old rescue Newfoundland who is working with Diana on becoming a certified therapy dog. While he is not certified, yet, he is undergoing his basic obedience training and has, on occasion, come to the office to provide comfort and support to those needing it. He is also available for those who might find it less stressful to meet in public and go for a walk. Please be aware, however, that insurance does not cover his services at this time.
This is Roxie, a 2-year old Pitbull mix rescue who has completed her training for therapy. Don't let the fact that she's a Pittie fool you. She's a ham who loves attention, hugs and kisses. As with Hagrid, please know insurance does not cover her services.
