Hi All....I am doing some research on facilities that have adopted a permanent resident dog. I would love to hear about your program & Pros & Cons. Thanks all in advance

We adopted a greyhound for the nursing home. She is a permanent resident. As far as blending into our program she has been brilliant. The residents light up when she visits with them, she comes to them when they call her. We have one staff member that causes problems but this was anticipated after the pre adoption survey was done. Only real issue is that she moults all the time. We expected her to be hair free. Our dog has been a huge hit with visitors families and residents.
