RESCUE DOG TO THERAPY DOG
Meet Lucy, Optimal Care PT's newest employee who brings a little bit of southern charm to the practice.
Lucy relocated to Long Island all the way from Texas, where she was rescued from the smoldering streets of Austin and now shows off her resilience to everyone that she meets.
Despite her rugged looks, Lucy is incredibly sweet and intelligent. Lucy is currently in training to become a Certified Therapy dog and loves every minute of it. She never misses an opportunity to help bring people a sense of calm, cheer them up, or just provide some entertainment while our PT's provide care.
Lucy loves humans of all ages, and specializes in greeting new patients, receiving belly rubs, and showing off her toys. In her spare time, Lucy likes to post on her Instagram page where she can share photos of her skills and techniques with the world.
