Peaches the Pit Bull Visits Boston


Kudos to Peaches! Peaches the pit bull and her owner Jennifer Spears Bashford traveled from North Carolina to spend several days visiting with the people of Boston after the marathon bombings. Peaches has her AKC Canine Good Citizen certification and is a certified therapy dog with Therapy Dogs International. During her visit, she provided comfort for many Boston residents, including police officers and other first responders, area school children and visitors to the memorial at the Boston Marathon finish line. The people they met were grateful for the support that came all the way from North Carolina. Peaches was especially well-suited for this task -- this calm, gentle dog’s “day job” is accompanying her owner to work at a nursing home. To learn more about Peaches, visit her on Facebook!
