Graham – Pet Therapy
2 year old Labrador Retriever/ Boxer Mix who visits Psychiatric Residential Treatment and hopes to start visiting Charlotte Day Treatment soon.
How often do you visit Alexander?
Graham visits on the weekends to come to play with kiddos in the residential program.
What is your favorite activity with the kiddos?
“Walking the maze. And when they give me hugs :)” – Graham (direct quote)
What do you like to do in your spare time?
He collects sticks. There is a huge pile in front of our house at all times. But his real hobby is finding new mud puddle or a pile of dirt to lay in.
What is your favorite toy?
ALL OF THEM…You like my toys. Gee, thanks, mom just bought it.
What is your favorite snack?
Carrots! Or fruit – he starts to whine if I don’t share my bananas or pineapple with him.
What is your favorite thing to do in North Carolina?
Hike! He loves to climb mountains and is a great scrambler.
