A FANTASTIC RESCUE STORY PLEASE READ ABOUT BANDIT!

TRAINING CAN SAVE LIVES.  MEET SAM FORMERLY KNOWN AS BANDIT.  BANDIT WAS DUMPED LIKE TRASH AT THE CARROLL COUNTY DOG POUND ( A GASSING FACILITY).  CLOSE TO HOME ANIMAL RESCUE BROUGHT HIM INTO OUR PROGRAM SKINNY AND CLEARLY HE HAD NEVER LIVED IN A HOME.  WELL THAT WAS 17 MONTHS AGO AND LOOK AT HIM NOW.  HIS MOM, JOYCE, ADOPTED HIM FROM CLOSE TO HOME ANIMAL RESCUE AND "He was first Delta (Pet Partners ) Certified as a Greeter Canine at the Cleveland Clinic. Yesterday he passed the TDI evaluation, so he is now certified to visit patients in hopitals. He receivedGgood Citizen Award and can be AKA approved for Mix Breed"  PLEASE DON'T DUMP YOUR DOG TO DIE AT A POUND WHEN TRAINING YOURSELF TO TRAIN HIM/HER CAN PRODUCE THE DOG BEHAVIOR YOU SEEK.
