Porsche the Therapy Dog helps kids become better readers
Just about every Wednesday, Hailey Sumpter comes to the Newton Public Library and reads to Porsche the Therapy Dog. Both Sumpter, who is an incoming Thomas Jefferson second-grader, and Porsche seem to love the tradition.
“Anytime we come, she mostly licks me and is mostly excited,” Sumpter said while receiving some affection from Porsche.
Lisa Gibbons is Porsche’s handler, and together they went through the Therapy Dogs International program. TDI is an organization that is dedicated to regulating, testing, and registering therapy dogs and their handlers.
