I adopted Patch, when he was approximately a year old, from Hope Animal Rescue in January of 2015. Rescue dogs generally need rehabilitation. So Patch and I trained for a year with Trainer, Nicole Lanahan, founder of Got Your Six Support Dogs. She said Patch would make an excellent Therapy Dog. So Patch and I took the Therapy Dog training. We are now a Therapy Dog team. We visit St. John’s Community Care Adult Day Care and Liberty Village of Maryville on a regular basis. Patch loves his job and his new friends. It’s fun and rewarding to be a part of the Ministry of St. John EUCC.
