ZIVA - Award Winning Heart Warmer
Ziva is our Black Labrador Rescue. She is currently in training to become our next therapy dog. Her first lesson is "Keep all 4 on the floor."
She follows in the paw-steps of Ruby, Gabe and Amazing Grace. All of these black labrador retrievers were former therapy dogs. They endeared themselves to our patients and of course, to us as well. Now, they romp in doggie heaven.
