Joseph Gallante & Rave
Joseph is a very happy and personable 13-year-old young man who has Down Syndrome. He has many hobbies such as listening to music, watching Aladdin, (his favorite movie) and swimming. Unfortunately, at times, Joe is afraid to do some things by himself and his therapist felt that a therapy dog would not only help boost Joe 's confidence in himself but would be helpful in keeping him safe as he often gets up during the night and roams the house. Joe also has the desire to "be in charge" and Rave is helping him to fill that need.
