The Roxy Puppies are an important part of our Courthouse Dogs Program. The little stuffed dogs are a complement to the real-world experience of meeting a therapy dog in the courthouse.
“Often these children are quickly removed from their homes, shuffled into foster settings or dragged into court” noted Roxy Reading spokesperson Linda McCrillis, “the therapy dogs do a great job of bringing comfort and relief from fear and confusion. The stuffed dogs serve as reminders of the comfort the children experienced while interacting with the real dogs at the courthouse. They may be the only belonging that a child gets to keep after being removed from their home that day”.
The Roxy Puppy is a cuddly reminder of the therapy dog connection as they continue through the
legal process, which often includes placement in a foster home, county care facility, etc.
