Shailah (formerly Shae)
Posted on February 1, 2021
Shailah (formerly Shae, adopted June 2014) had a moment of fame on King5 Evening this week. When I went looking for a dog all those years ago, I wanted a dog that had the potential of being a certified Therapy dog. Shailah has more than filled her role. She passed her certification after 4 training sessions and we have been involved in a reading program for 2nd graders that are struggling with reading ever since.
The program is Read to Rover. She loves the kids and the treats they bring. She has been instrumental in teaching fearful children that dogs can be fun and safe to be around. The most common description of her from the kids is 'adorable'.
I am so grateful to you for bringing this smart, adorable little soul into my life. Not only has she brought profound joy to me, she shares that with many children. She has made a profound difference in their lives.
