I'm Seamus! I come from a litter of 8 puppies, 5 boys and 3 girls (and I'm one of those girls - don't let my name fool you!). I was born in Sharon, PA and lived with my first owner for 8 years until he was unable to take care of me. I moved to Girard where I now live with his parents. I have been in Giard for the past 3 years and I love it! I have a fenced in yard and another dog named Oakley to play with. When my owners rake leaves in the fall I enjoy sitting in them and have to be pulled out when they try to bag them up!
Things I Learned from Humans: They taught me how to go in and out of the dog door, shake, sit, lay down and take a treat gently. They also taught me how not to pull on the leash when going for a walk and now we go more often.
Things My Owner Learned from Me: If they want to relax and forget about their problems for a while, just sit down and pet me or give me a hug! Taking me for a long walk is good exercise for both of us.
Favorite Trick: I like to have my owners throw a toy for me. I will bring it back once, then I make them chase me for it! They rarely catch me. Take me to the beach, however, and I will retrieve that ball from the water and put it right at their feet every time for hours!
Favorite Treat: Anything out of a bag especially if my owner is also eating it.
Make No Bones About It...I Am a Great Therapy Dog Because.... I am very patient, love hugs, enjoy being pet and I loke to go to new and different places.
My Favorite Places to Visit: Erie First Christian Academy "Read to Me" program, Millcreek Manor, Blasco Memorial Library.
