Jax is sorely missed by his owner Brenda as well as the many lives he touched over the years (he passed away 2021)

Jax and handler Brenda

Hi I'm Jax, a Miniature Australian Shepherd, and I serve as a registered for "complex environment" Pet Partners therapy dog.

Fun facts about me: My name was chosen to fit my happy personality. I LOVE playing with tennis balls and my favorite treats are anything with peanut butter! My birthday is March 22, 2017. (Yes I may be a senior, but I act like a puppy enjoying my job to the fullest!) 

 

Some of the ways I try to bring cheer: talk quietly in happiness to patients, wiggle my whole body excited to meet everyone or be a bit goofy and "beg" for more love or "cookies" from staff or patients.

Aliyah and handler Brandy

Hi I'm Aliyah, a Doberman Pincher, and I have retired. I no longer serve as a registered  "complex environment" Pet Partners therapy dog.

Fun facts about me:  My name is Hebrew and it means to "Ascend." I may be big but I am a super sweet, gentle and loving giant! My birthday is November 25, 2010. I love people, especially children, and my favorite treat is "Frosty Paws" (dog ice cream). My favorite toys are any stuffed kind that have squeakers.

Some of the ways I try to bring cheer: snuggle and lean my body next to someone who needs a little extra TLC, or stare lovingly into someone's eyes.

Hi I'm Simba, an English Labrador Retriever, and I serve as registered for "complex environment" Pet Partners therapy dog.

Fun facts about me:  My name comes from the Swahili language meaning 
"Lion" part of my handler's name. My birthday is July 25, 2015. I love people, especially young children. I love ALL kinds of treats! My favorite toy just so happens to be something I love to chew on...antlers! 

Some of the ways I try to bring cheer: wag my tail so fast it looks like it will break! Put my head in someone's lap and lean my body against someone who needs a little extra TLC.

Hi I'm Hunter, a Black Labrador Retriever,
and I serve as a registered "complex
 
environment" Pet Partners therapy dog.

Fun facts about me: was named after
Jaci’s great grandmother’s last name who
lived on the Reservation in New York. 

My birthday is August 1st, 2017. I love people,
especially children. A favorite treat of mine is anything 
salmon flavor. My favorite toy is 
squeaky stuffed animals which I like to play

while laying on my back holding them with
two paws like a baby holding a bottle.
