Roo came from a rescue group in Illinois and was previously with an elderly couple. When Roo first came to Christina as a graduation gift from her mom, he was “terrified of everything.” But, “With a lot of time and patience, he blossomed into my best friend,” she says of her nine-year-old buddy.
Roo will be busy with visits, as Cristina has her sights set on nursing homes, hospice, libraries, and hospitals.
Cristina also has three other dogs Si, another Poodle, and two Australian Shepherds, Piper and Taz.
Cristina says, “Roo and I enjoy hiking, backpacking, going for trail rides, and traveling. Pretty much anything outdoors when the weather is nice!”
