Yesterday we showed you Shaina, a dog from an animal shelter who learned to provide comfort to people in hospitals and nursing homes.
Today we move on to service dogs, trained to assist people with disabilities who need help with simple things like turning on lights, opening doors, picking up dropped articles, etc. This takes more training, but it means everything to a person who can’t do these things for herself.
Gizmo is now ten years old and her life has been as fulfilling for her, as for her mistress…
