|Meet charming Charlie!|
Meet Charming Charlie! He is a young shepherd mix, estimated to be about a year old. He has lots of love and energy to share, and his entire body wiggles with excitement when he is around people. He simply loves the attention of being a therapy dog.
Charlie was found lost and wandering around a local lake, where he was rescued by a dog loving Cowboy family and nursed back to health. For the first time in his young life he was vetted and provided preventative care and now he is ready to take on the world.
Charlie currently resides with his rescue family, and he is training with his Rescue Mom, an OSU employee. He has also spent some time with First Cowgirl, Ann Hargis. All it took was one look into those trusting eyes, and she took an immediate shine to him and his charming personality.
The First Cowgirl has been a fan of the OSU Pet Therapy Program from the beginning, and she is, perhaps, the program’s biggest cheerleader.
“The President and I are so excited about this program. As animal lovers, we understand the benefit these animals will bring to campus,” says the First Cowgirl. “I applaud the efforts of OSU Center for Veterinary Health Sciences in helping to establish this program, as well as the other offices that are participating. I look forward to continuing our efforts to become America’s HEALTHIEST campus by partnering with our veterinary school, and I can’t wait for campus to meet Charlie!”
