From Stray to Therapy Dog

When Olive was a street puppy in her first heat in E. St. Louis, a volunteer from Stray Rescue noticed her plight and stopped the car with the passenger door open. Olive made a beeline for it and became the "rescue dog", that I found via Petfinder after losing my longtime german shepherd companion Onyx. She has always been a "wild thing", but was willing to learn so now she visits human "strays" that many other humans don't visit at the VA hospital and nursing homes as we have time. We love her spirit and her gentleness both! She has a winning multi-faceted personality that the patients, particularly the older ones, really appreciate. I'm sure glad someone rescued this sweet dog for me!
