Here is what her handler, Howard has to say about her:
"Georgia came from a breeder in Mono, Ontario, whom imports long haired German Shepherds from Europe. They are bred for their gentle nature and people skills; All of which turned out true, thus I thought she would enjoy her role in a therapy dog program!
I retired from Hamilton Fire Department 3 years ago and now volunteer for Zachary’s Paws with Georgia, who is 3 years old. We visit Hamilton General Hospital 6W on Tuesdays and also at Dogs Reformed during the week."

MEET WYNTER, OUR NEW THERAPY DOG!
...and just like that, Wynter is here!!! That’s right. Our next therapy dog we want you to know is Wynter! Here is what his handler had to say about him:
"Wynter is a 5 year old white shepherd husky cross. He is sweet, calm (mostly) 😂, very social and handsome boy. Believe it or not, just 3 short years ago he was in a rescue with no family to call his own.
Once he came home to us, he very quickly showed us that he needed a job to do. After earning his certification to be a therapy dog, we chose Juravinski hospital to visit and have been going every Wednesday since.
He loves making patients smile. My pocket full of cookies doesn’t hurt either. Not to mention the hugs, kisses and belly rubs he gets the whole time he’s there!"
