When Dr. Chuck Montgomery, child psychiatrist, requested a very special Collie to work as a therapy dog to help his young patients, we were happy to offer him our wonderful Rainshade April Jewel. April was born on April 1st but she was no fool! She was an exquisite and precious jewel and the perfect candidate for the job!
Austin is an amazing Collie! Handsome, loving, well-traveled, and brilliant. Austin’s most recent accomplishment is earning a pet therapy certification with Paws’itive Teams in San Diego, CA! Austin’s first therapy assignment is working with children in speech therapy programs! Austin loves the children and his “job”– and the children absolutely love Austin! Austin is now certified by Kaiser Zion Hospital in San Diego with his team mate, Margery, to visit patients and their families in pediatrics, chemotherapy, and more!
