Yet another ‘working dogs/therapy dogs’ success story – this time in Western Australia at the Woodvale Secondary College using two special greyhounds.
Boots came first for three days of dog therapy support, and then Rush joined to fill in for the remaining two days.

And the spin-off benefit from using the dogs at the school is the profile raised for greyhound adoption.
