My name is Belle and I am a princess. I am a four-year-old Golden Retriever and an active psychiatric service dog for one of our founding members. I perform tasks such as brace, break hands, and know when there is a need for deep pressure therapy. I can sense when a panic attack or dizzy spell is approaching and alert my handler to leverage the resources needed to manage the situation.
My name is Buddy. I am a mix of Border Collie and Flat Coat Retriever. My people say that I am 13 years old, but I act more like a teenager! I am our lead therapy dog and enjoy visiting places where I can bring comfort and joy.
I enjoy making friends and volunteering at The Counseling Center of Grayslake. I am happiest when I am "working" or playing Frisbee.

My name is KC and I am a 10 month old Labrodoodle. I was named after one of our beloved supporters, Kasey, who hosts a lemonade stand for C4C every summer! When C4C met me, I did not know what a collar or leash were, and now I heel like a perfect gentleman. I live with Maxwell, who is assigned as my person. We are both in training and absolutely ADORE each other.

I am a very smart boy and have completed most of my training. I am now living with my veteran and we attend C4C training sessions regularly.
My name is Molly and I am a Maltipoo. I am a sweet girl who was selected specifically for my future mama. My small size and soft fur were necessary for accommodating her physical ailments as well as her emotional needs. I now live with my new mama and continue to work through my training.

My name is Rubie and I am a sweet, young German Shepherd mix. I came to Canines 4 Comfort by way of Hoof Woof & Meow Animal Rescue (HWMAR).
