Ike is a handsome and loving 4 year old Golden male who lived with his former family since he was a puppy. He was the apple of their eye and was well loved. But one day, the family brought home a new baby from the hospital and life changed suddenly for Ike. He was banished to the basement when it was discovered that the new baby was allergic to dogs. Ike was incredibly sad and did not understand what he did wrong to be shunned like this. For 3+ years Ike spent most of his days alone. Ike became very withdrawn and his adopters had to work with him to overcome a number of fears.
Recently, they shared good news with us about Ike! "If you can read the label on his kerchief, it says "Therapy Dog International". We received his official papers today, and can't wait to get him some work. In the meantime, he is enrolled in his first Agility Class, started last week. Who would have guessed!"
Be sure to congratulate Ike and his family on a job well done!
