Labrador Retriever

Color / Weight

Brown / 70 lbs


A happy dog that is always wiggling her butt. She loves to meet and greet everyone and will give you a nose bump or high five anytime. She loves to play with all dogs and animals. Garfield the cat, shares her dog bed with her. She loves to swim and will follow a rowboat for hours. We have nicknamed her the Pond Puppy.


Chia began training early and has been to obedience, rally and tricks (her favorite). She also completed the Rainbow Animal Assisted Therapy Training.

How do you know that your dog loves therapy work?

We have three dogs and Chia races to the car to be the "chosen one." She loves to enter the front door of schools and sign in. Most importantly she loves to interact with the children and wants them to teach her something new to make them smile. Today she learned that "e," "a," "t," means she can have the treat; so now she can spell.
