Buddy, a labradoodle, is perhaps the most beloved member of our team. He is a trained service dog and he offers a great deal of comfort to clients and staff alike. He greets visitors with a handshake and loves making friends and making people smile. He also gives the staff some extra love when they’ve had a hard day.
