Charity Partner The Good Dog Foundation
Location Milford, Connecticut


Rescued at the eleventh hour from death row at a high kill, New York City Shelter, Jeffrey was spared for a reason and he knows it- he was born to be a therapy dog!
He thrives upon the good vibrations reverberated back from each and every heart he touches. He is a shining example of grace and resilience.
This formerly abandoned boy has blossomed into an extraordinary ambassador, not only for pit bull type dogs, but for shelter pets everywhere. He is showing the world that shelter animals are not damaged, only richer in life experience, and deserving of a second chance at life.
Jeffrey is an AKC Canine Good Citizen, Registered Delta Pet Partners Therapy Dog, a Registered Reading Education Assistance Dog, a Reiki Attuned Canine, as well as a Goodwill Ambassador for Shelter Animals everywhere.
Jeffrey thoroughly enjoys his work as a therapy dog and he visits several different venues, but his specialty is his work with grieving children. He is intuitively drawn to those that need him most, offering a soft shoulder to lean on or a silly, wiggling tail to anyone in need of a good laugh!
Jeffrey is beloved by children throughout Southern CT, visiting grief groups, scout troops, hospitals and special events as well as weekly visits to an inner city library.
Jeffrey's childlike spirit and signature painted toenails delight children and adults alike.
He is a living lesson in gratitude, joyously spreading peace, love and healing wherever he goes!
