It was last-minute – a young patient had been in the hospital for over a week and had another week in front of her before she could go home. The hospital’s volunteer coordinator reached out to North Star Therapy Animals and member Sherri knew that was right up her dog Itzy’s alley. (she loves young humans!)
Itzy didn’t need any special instructions – just went right to work being loving, calm, and supportive. Sherri says “The intuition this little chihuahua has always amazes me! Itzy has the biggest heart of any dog I’ve ever been around.”
She may be small, but what Itzy does for those she visits is remarkably huge.
