A dog of all trades visited the Herrick Memorial Library recently to show children in the summer reading program how canines can be heroes too.
Lynn Patterson of the Ohio Special Response Team and her grandson, Noah, showed Shona, a border collie-Australian shepherd mix, to explain to kids the various jobs their smart dog is able to do.
Shona is a therapy, search and rescue, post-traumatic stress disorder, and companion dog. She visits people in nursing homes and helps search teams find missing people. Patterson told the children stories about the rescue missions Shona participated in and gave tips on what to do if they ever got lost.
