Dogs visit students



May 11, 2017 - 12:00 AM

Allen Community College students got some much-needed therapy from the stress of preparing for finals today with the help of two canine volunteers. 

Reno and Eva, 5 and 3 years old respectively, are doberman pinschers registered with Therapy Dogs International. Their owner, Sandy Woodruff, whose son Josef attends the college, has raised the dobermans since they were pups. This is the second time they have visited with ACC students. 

Woodruff pitched the idea of bringing the canine duo to Ryan Bilderback, director of Student Life and Housing, who agreed that it could benefit not only students, but faculty and staff as well. More than 45 people waited in line on April 7 for a chance to interact with the dogs and to watch them demonstrate tricks.
