Our Retired Boys

Sierra Vista Hubbles Law (better known as Kipling)

 

Kipling…the big boy with the soulful human eyes. As one 6 year old said, “it’s like he’s trying to speak to you with his eyes.”  Calm, gentle and connected, Kipling is the dog that started my therapy lines.  This love lives with us here at Berkshire Hills.

 

Carson

Berkshire Hills Kit Carson (Retired)

Carson is our famous “hugging dog!”
Or as his guardian Thom once put it, he commits “random acts of kindness.”
Recently this happened when I had him at the insurance agency. He laid by my feet so patiently
while I spoke to the agent. Seemingly out of the blue, he became motivated to go so gently up to the agent and give her a tender hug! 

Carson, a therapy dog, is in a loving guardian home and goes to work with Thom as a therapist and gives out gentle hugs to those who need them. Thom and Carson are a powerful healing duo!

Pablo is OFA Good hips and normal elbows. Eyes cleared by CERF.  EIC, PRA, and DM clear.

Heartlands Dashiell Hammett (retired)

Dashiell

Dashiell has the most amazing calm temperament. Being near him is very grounding, especially when he leans into you and looks into your eyes.

When we had the opportunity  to donate a dog to one of the families who lost their young daughter in the Sandy Hook tragedy there was no question that Dashiell was the dog who could offer the most support in their journey of healing. Being able to offer these dogs for their ability to love and comfort is what its all about and we are so proud of Dash.

 

 

KieferSnug Harbor Kiefer (retired)

Kiefer is now retired and living the good life with his dedicated guardians, Linda and Robert!
