In August 2009 I turned 19 months old. I'm a German Shepherd born in Jefferson, Ohio. When I saw my parents for the first time as a pup, I ran and jumped in their arms and they knew I was the one! I love people, kids and other animals - but most importantly, teaching my Dad new tricks!
Things I Have Learned from Humans: To be patient, loving and understanding. Also, to be playful and not to take things too seriously.
Things My Owner Learned from Me: Total dedication to me. To know when to play and to know when to take walks. Also, my owners know how to keep me safe.
Favorite Trick: Teaching humans how to play. I don't fetch, but I do manage to get my humans to chase after me to get the ball or a stick. It's fun watching adults and children running in circles. When they get tired, I give them a ball or a stick.
Favorite Treat: Popcorn and the occasional Dairy Queen ice cream cone with two dog bones in it!
Make No Bones About It...I Am a Great Therapy Dog Because... I love everybody. I love attention, and I love to play. But most of all - I love human contact. I'm dedicated to making people happy. Try me out - show me a little attention and watch me work my magic!
My Favorite Places to Visit: Parkside at North East, North East Elementary, The Barber Center Senior Center. My volunteer handler is named Dean.
