I was adopted by my new owner in February of 2008. Life was not good when I lived with an abuser, so I ran away. At age 1 1/2 I was adopted from the Humane Society. Life is now one happy slide after another...I love to go down the slide at the school playground - with the kids or without! Attending meetings, rummage sales, and greeting people on walks has me really looking forward to being a therapy dog! Some people think I am a Pit, perhaps my grand mother was. Granddad probably was a tiger. I'm just a mixture with a little Staffordshire Terrier thrown in. What are you?
Things I Have Learned from Humans: How to roll over, and give love.
Things My Owner Has Learned from Me: If I get hungry, I just make eye contact and roll over! That's usually good for at least one treat and a good laugh!
Favorite Trick: Going down slides, and rolling over.
Favorite Treat: Big Milkbones seem made for burying but the smaller ones I eat. Treats that come in a bag (the rattle lets me know one is on its way!) are great.
Make No Bones About It...I Am a Great Therapy Dog Because... I know the power of giving back. Since I was abused, I have learned compassion and that it is best to share my love with the human kind!
My Favorite Places to Visit: Schools. My volunteer handler is named Norma.
