Here’s a sad story that highlights the problems that can result from the use of untrained “therapy” dogs. There’s no doubt that former marine Tyler Kelly gets comfort from his Alaskan Malamute / Husky mix, Thor, but local authorities say that the dog attacked nearby farm animals. We all want the help that compassionate dogs can offer, but situations like this put authorities in a very tough position. One wonders if things would be different if Thor had received proper training. No one wants to see Thor put down, and we hope that another solution can be found.
