Support Dog
Dolly is our support dog. She is happy, energetic and will encourage you to perk up, even when you’re not feeling too great. Not only is she the best pet, but she is also great at supporting and comforting owners when we, unfortunately, have to give them bad news. Due to Dolly’s intelligence we have to be more creative in hiding our lunch or locking doors because she can open any door or steal any lunch from most places. We love having her around the clinic and everyone that meets her feels the same.
