Dog’s name and age: Bandit, 6 years
Nicknames: Bandito, Ban-Ban, Band, Mr. Squeakyballs, Fluffy Butt, Bear
Adoption Story: At age 34, I had a stroke. Over the next year, I did physical and occupational therapy to relearn how to walk and use my hand again. On the first anniversary of having a stroke, I saw Bandit up for up for adoption. When I saw him in person, it was love at first sight. I knew having Bandit in my life would help me continue bouncing back from my stroke, and we have been inseparable for the last six years.
Bandit got his name because of his fur coloring, which looks like a bandit mask around his eyes. He loves walks outdoors, playing fetch, and finding the squeaker on toys.

On the job front, Bandit goes to nursing homes to visit and bring happiness to the elderly.
