He may not be perfect, but Xander the pug is inspirational and awesome. Despite being completely blind, Xander is a fantastic therapy dog and a service dog. All thanks to Marcie and Rodney Beedy, who adopted Xander from the Klamath Animal Shelter, and in no time enrolled him in obedience class (Marcie tied bells to her pantleg!) and had him certified as a service dog. Xander visits hoomins of all ages in hospitals and hospice, assists in community projects and helps raise awareness for the Hands and Words Are Not For Hurting Project. Even Xander’s Facebook page is a very special place.
