CAT with an odd name has important job at training center for dogs in Support Dogs, Inc. in St Louis. This corporation took black and white cat in the summer and named him D-O-G (dee-OH’-jee). He’s more than a mascot – officials say he plays a important role getting the dogs feel comfortable around other animals. Assistance dogs need to be well-behaved and not be distracted in their job helping people who are deaf or have mobility problems. Anne Klein, President and CEO at Support Dogs, Inc. says that D-O-G is “fearless” around the larger canines and plays with their tails, sleeps in their beds and eats and drinks from their bowls instead of his own. Dogs go through a two-year training program before they’re given to clients for free.
