Meet Fritz. Fritz is an 11-year old Weimaraner with beautiful, compassionate green eyes. Fritz is proudly wearing his therapy dog vest. Like the seven other therapy dogs of Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare, Fritz wears a vest that matches his human’s vest. Our pet therapy dogs are very active and very effective, especially in the nursing homes where they serve a great number of patients. Their gentle demeanor and adorable social nature often results in them being invited into beds, chairs, and sometimes the laps of patients. We have a variety of dogs, including a collie, an Irish setter, a Yorkie, a beagle, and a dachshund. They wear their therapy dog vests with pride, and you can feel that pride as you observe them serving Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare patients and their families.
