Jeffrey the therapy dog was a stray set to be euthanized when he was rescued by a Connecticut woman


Jeffrey learned obedience and tested to become a certified therapy dog. He passed 'with flying colours'


Jeffery's signature: painted toenails




A 9-year-old survivor of last year's tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut has found comfort in a place many people wouldn't expect: a stocky, 73-pound pit bull named Jeffrey.


While many would see Jeffrey and run for the hills, Sandy Hook fourth-grader Emma Wishneski considers him one of her closest friends - she even plans to bring a miniature, stuffed version of the dog with her on her upcoming first day of school.


Despite his hulking size - and unwarranted bad reputation - Jeffrey is a registered therapy dog whose job it is to put a smile on the face of a human who may be having a tough time, or suffering from a serious injury or disease.







I love Jeffrey's green painted toenails - a very touching story.

That's lovely. So nice to hear something positive about these dogs for a change. It backs up my theory that there is no such thing as a bad dog, just bad owners.


totally agree with this comment.

Agree 100% Ocelot. My friend spends her entire life sorting out (rehabbing) so called viscious dogs. Its rarely the dog, its mostly the owner who has to be taught to have confidence and authority with kindness.


And I believe that most "problem" dogs are suffering from "fear aggression" which is something they have learnt from their owners reaction to other dogs. "Dogs are like their owners" and we all think of the girl with the outrageous perm standing next to her primped up poodle! Not so, the saying means that dogs can take on their owners personality, so if you like 15 pints and a punch up several times a week, perhaps this type of dog is not for you!


That's a great story about a vastly misunderstood breed. Dogs only want to please their owners, so if you tell/teach your pit bull to kill someone, he probably will.
