I'm Tesla! Yes, named after the electrical engineer. I’m a 4-year-old pitbull mix. My mom rescued me 2 years ago from the Humane Society. With a lot of work, she built up my confidence and taught me to be a dog again. Along the way, we found out I could make a great therapy dog!
Things I Learned From Humans: I used to have a hard time relaxing – I worried about everything! – but my mom has taught me to relax and that I’ll be taken care of.
Things My Owner Learned From Me: I have tricked my mom into learning how to slow down. Every time I see her rushing to get ready or go somewhere, I give her my cutest, most pitiful face until she takes a few minutes to pet me and talk to me.
Favorite Trick: I have grown quite the repertoire over the past couple years and will do anything for food! I can shake, beg, give high fives, rollover, and (my favorite) dance!!
Favorite Treat: I enjoy almost anything edible, but I love settling down with a nice pig ear in a pile of laundry.
Makes No Bones About It...I Am a Great Therapy Dog Because... I absolutely love people...young or old and all shapes and sizes!
