Roxy - Rescued to Helping

This is Roxy. I met her when she was jumping up outside to see in a window at my vet's office in Webster, SD. She had been a stray in town for a long time and was scheduled to be put to sleep that weekend. I took her home instead. It didn't take long to discover that she was cut out for more. After moving to Wisconsin I was put in contact with a lady who did training for therapy dog teams. Roxy and I went to training and became a certified therapy dog team. As a school psychologist and counselor, I was able to bring Roxy to school with me for the past three and a half years. We help students practice reading, work with social skills, comfort students and just provide a happy face. Now, people forget my name but they always know Roxy's!
