My daughter Ellie (14 years old) wanted nothing more than to have a dog of her own! She begged, pleaded and prayed for years, but it wasn’t the right time in our lives. Well, 1 1/2 years ago we were blessed to rescue a sweet Australian Shepherd mix, Teddy.
Teddy has enriched our lives beyond measure! We quickly realized he has a gift to make others feel loved. We don’t know his story, but know he was left along and abandoned, but her has plenty of love to share.
Six months ago, we began the process for him to become a therapy dog through Love on a Leash. We have just started making visits but love being able to brighten other’s days through the love of our sweet dog.
Tressa, Ellie and Teddy
