From Pound Puppy to Therapy Dog!

Sunny, a mix breed dog that was a adopted from the Stark County Pound, is now a therapy dog helping others along with her owner Hella!

Sunny, a mixed breed German Shepherd was adopted by Hella, my dental assistant, from the Stark County Dog Pound was scheduled to be euthanized. Hella went to the pound and saw her, fell in love and took her home.

She was spared euthanization.

Hella worked with her and now Sunny is a registered therapy dog. She has a wonderful disposition and now works to help people to feel better about their lives. She's one of the most kind dogs I have personally met.

This small example shows how there are so many awesome dogs at the pound that when given a chance, excel and now Sunny helps others. Hella is taking her to assisted living homes for others to enjoy her company.

God Bless Hella for her efforts! I personally have adopted five dogs from the Stark County Dog Pound and have had nothing but great relationships with them!

Hella, You are great and John you are wonderful to convey what a great thing Hella has done. Not only do you do good things to people's teeth, you care for and love animals!!! What a great promotion for dogs, cats, and other animals waiting at area shelters for nothing more than a chance for love and companionship! Just got my second kitty a year ago from a shelter and he is nothing short of AWESOME! Kris Freday
