PGS Four Legged Staff

My name is Haylee; I was born on December 10, 2010. I am a Chichuahua, the oldest breed on the American continent and the smallest breed in the world. I like going to work where I get to visit nursing homes and sit on everyone’s lap.

 

.

My name is Mocha; I was born on February 5, 2002. I am a designer dog, a deliberate mix between a Pomeranian and a Poodle so I’m called a Pom-A-Poo. The residents in the nursing homes like my pigtail ears and petting my soft hair.

 

My name is Sadie, I am a Black Newfoundland and was born April 2010. I was originally bred to be a water rescue dog for fishermen. Now my job is a K-9 visitor to nursing and group homes. I love people and they enjoy my soft, silky hair.

My name is Thor; I was born March 6, 2010. I am a Great Pyrenees Mountain Dog. My job at home is to protect my family from wild animals coming into my yard. When I go to work for Personal Guardianship Services, my job is to visit people in nursing and group homes. I am very friendly and love to meet new people. I have been through training and want to continue my education so I can become a certified therapy dog.
