MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO (KTVI) – Support dogs, Incorporated treated patients at St. Louis Children's Hospital to a puppy play date.
Four lab puppies were the recipients of some loving from the kids, who got to name the dogs. The puppies are being raised as service dogs while hospital officials say spending time with these little ones is the best medicine.
Dr. Devin Bell from BJC Healthcare in St. Peters visits the 9AM Show with Captain Robert Daus of the Maryland Heights Fire Protection District to measure a person’s vital signs after they’re treated with some “puppy therapy.”
Fox 2 web producer (and avid dog lover) Kevin Held was volunteered to be the guinea pig for this experiment. We think he enjoyed the furry surprise.
Rhett Nicks of the St. Louis County Pet Adoption Center provided the four adorable pit bull puppies for the surprise. The pet adoption center is located at 10521 Baur Boulevard in Olivette. For more information, call 314-615-0650.
