Sunday Success Story from the Humane Society! Heidi is a two year old 50 pound German Shepherd, adopted from a shelter in 2022 after waiting three months for a home of her own. After 8 weeks of training, Heidi aced final evaluation and tests to be a certified therapy dog with an official vest and laminated ID card that says so.
Pretty soon Heidi and I will be going to local schools where we will work one on one with a counselor and child with problems who will talk to Heidi instead of the counselor. Heidi should be excellent at it as she has a very calm, and loving personality.
Yesterday, while entering local coffee shop, a loose dog ran up to us, snapping and growling at Heidi who remained calm. Heidi is a great dog who loves all, especially Pippin, the cat and me. We are lucky to have her. -Judy.
