Doggy Profile: Tezza

Reading Dog: Tezza

Branch: Watsonia

When: Tuesdays 3.30pm - 4.30pm (during school term)

Breed: Labrador 

Age: 12

Why a reading dog: Tezza was training to be a guide dog but developed a skin complaint so he decided he'd like to hear stories and help kids read. He enjoys being at the library and listening to stories so much he has been a Reading Dog for 5 years. 

Favourite snack: I'm a Labrador I like everything, Dad (my owner Greg) gives me. I especially enjoy the liver treats I get after each story that is read to me at the library.

Tezza's Wish: To have lots of children visit me and one day to discover a book about a dog named Tezza! (That sounds like a great book!)

Do you think your dog could be a library reading dog? We are looking for some new doggy volunteers.
