Leala is not sure if she wants to be on the Active or Retired page. She was Jane’s first therapy dog, starting in 2009. She likes the quiet atmosphere of nursing homes. Leala was a dumped dog who was terrified of people for the first six months after she was rescued at seven months old by Jane’ son. Then all of a sudden, she decided that people were wonderful. There is a story about her in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Volunteering and Giving Back. She also has her own webpage, Leala, Sweetest Dog.
