BROCKTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – A new therapy dog program in Brockton is intended to bring comfort to local students, staff and faculty.
Brockton Police Department Friday night shared details about the face behind this program: K9 Bonnie.
Bonnie is a part-black Labrador retriever who was rescued from a kill shelter. Now the lovely lass will work in Brockton’s schools and the peer support unit to provide a little extra help to those who need it most.
“Bonnie has a book about her that describes therapy dogs and their role in schools,” the department wrote on Facebook. “She will soon have stuffed animals that look just like her and stickers to promote her on Instagram.”
The department will announce events that Bonnie will attend on her Instagram and invites the community to welcome their first ever therapy dog.
