Crime and courts reporterCole, a black Labrador retriever therapy dog, recently helped a teenage girl relax and open up during therapy at Wiregrass Angel House.
The teenage girl witnessed a violent crime and has been going through some therapy sessions with Wiregrass Angel House, a local nonprofit agency that helps victims of violent crime.
“It made her open up more,” said Shelly Linderman, the director of Wiregrass Angel House. “When she first started (therapy with Cole) she was totally against it. Then she was asking for him all the time in therapy. He’s made her feel more comfortable.”
