An energetic and adventurous one-year-old Golden Retriever named Luna is up to follow the footprints or in this case, the paw prints, of Buster who is her predecessor. She is the next therapy dog that will be serving love and giving comfort to the kids at Swartz Creek Community Schools.
Buster was the beloved therapy dog of the school for over seven years, starting his journey in elementary school and then working his way up to high school. Sadly, he passed away after suffering from anemia. So, his owner Jerry Brown decided to get another one at Bennington Hills Kennel in Fenton to continue his legacy. There he met Luna.
Luna was initially adopted by a family during the pandemic but later on decided that they no longer wanted to have a puppy. So, they went back to the shelter to surrender her and she was once again in need of a new home. Brown didn’t mind the situation and went ahead to adopt her. Brown also kept her name as she seemed to be already familiar with it.
When he finally brought her home, he discovered how energetic she was. Luna was excited like she was just discovering the world for the first time ever. And Brown could also tell that the first time he walked her was also her very first. Every little thing she saw like birds, squirrels, and even moths felt like an adventure for her.
But Luna’s most favorite activity is going to Swartz Creek Community Schools’ summer camp. She loves sitting with students in the classroom but sometimes she can get overexcited when kids give her attention and lots of pets. And those times can be very challenging for Brown who is just starting to teach Luna about self-control. Nevertheless, it was always a fun time for both Luna and the kids.
When the next school year begins, Luna will be around more kids and of course, she is definitely looking forward to that. She will be the most awesome therapy dog ever.
