Blue, Left and Rosey are beautiful five year old Siberian huskies. They are very close and depend on each other. We are looking for a forever home where they can be together. Blue loves to play, to run like the wind and let himself rub against his stomach. Rosey is friendly, loves chasing, and loves blue. Come and meet this dynamic, cute blue-eyed duo.
Watson here, and I just want to point out that dogs are man’s best friend. I know my people know what a great addition I am to their lives. I keep her on a strict sleep, exercise, and diet plan. I eat all the vegetables my dad hates (don’t tell mom) and I never reveal a secret, especially when I get free goodies.
Dogs have become an indispensable part of human life. Many people rely on dogs to help them throughout the day by supporting and improving their mobility.
The Assistant Dogs of America-Therapy Dog Program is a service / assistance program that provides senior assistance dogs at little or no cost. Each service / assistance dog is trained in tasks that are tailored to the person they are serving. For people with disabilities, a service dog can be the key to independence.
Therapy dogs differ from service dogs because they offer affection and comfort to people in hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, schools, hospices, and disaster areas. Therapy dogs are not service animals and do not have the same privileges.
The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) defines a service animal as a dog that is individually trained to do work or duties for people with disabilities. Only dogs are recognized as service animals according to titles II and III of the ADA.
The tasks of service dogs include helping the blind, alerting the deaf, pulling wheelchairs, helping people with seizures, retrieving items such as telephones or medication, and supporting people with psychiatric and neurological disabilities.
In order to determine whether an animal is a service animal, companies are only allowed to ask two questions: (1) Is the animal required because of a disability? (2) What work or task was this animal taught?
Animals for emotional support or comfort are not considered service animals as they are not covered by ADA guidelines for service animals. Well, I consider myself a viable laboratory that does the job of waking mom up, eating vegetables that dad doesn’t like, and giving kisses.
– XOXO Watson
