How do you know that your dog loves therapy work?

Bentley was created for therapy work! He loves all people, old and young, but especially those in wheel chairs. He gently places his head in their laps. He loves giving and receiving hugs and offers his paw. Bentley was raised on a horse ranch in Pennsylvania by a very good lady. She named him Romeo because of his loving nature. She passed away and the family sold the farm. I volunteered to take him. It was one of the best decisions of my life. Bentley joined our pack, consisting of a Bearded Collie, Border Collie (who just passed away) and a Shih Tzu (who also passed away) when he was six years old and fit right in. He’s a treasure! And Pet Therapy is the perfect mission for him. He looks like Lassie.
