Meet New Pet Partner Delilah

Monday, July 21st, 2014



Breed:  Cocker Spaniel Mix

Birthday:  May 26, 2011

Delilah loves everyone she meets.  Her nickname is “Wiggle Butt”, because she is so excited to greet people, she can’t stop wiggling her bottom.

Delilah, or Lilah, was adopted from Camp Cocker Rescue in 2013 and quickly passed her Good Manners classes and Canine Good Citizen.  She loves hanging out in the park with her doggie friends on Saturday.  Lilah lives with handler, Katy, big sister, Whitney, and cat friend, Bro.

Meet Cutie Hogie – Debbie Pfeiffer’s Pet Partner!

Hogie Pfeiffer

Welcome to AHF Caring Creatures Pet Partners Debbie and Hogie!

Breed:                  Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu mix                                Birthday:              December 2006

Hogie is a very quiet and gentle little dog who loves everyone he meets.  My family adopted him from the shelter in 2008 at the age of two and because of his easygoing nature, it was easy to see what a perfect therapy dog he would be.  He became a certified therapy dog in 2011 and quickly wins over everyone’s hearts with his sweet personality and big brown eyes.

When he is not assisting people with pet therapy, he is a delightful family pet who loves going for rides in the car, seeing new people and places, and generally being included in everything that our family is doing whenever possible.

Welcome to Pet Partners, Diana & Massimo

Friday, December 27th, 2013

Brameltte & MassimoMassimo is an English Black Labrador retriever and was born at the Guide Dogs of America School in L.A. on May 2, 2011.  Diana was the puppy raiser for Massimo until he was 18 months old, which meant that he went everywhere with Diana and her family.  After that, Massimo went to “college training” where he learned how to do Guide work.  Unfortunately, he didn’t like to walk on manhole covers, so GDA made him a “career change dog”.  Diana’s family adopted Massimo and now, he’s pursuing his next career as a therapy dog!
