What is your favorite thing about your pet?
Liam is a very loyal and kind-hearted dog who loves his family very deeply.  He is a sensitive soul and is an excellent judge of character.  He is also goofy and funny.  People sometimes laugh at him when we are walking because he has such an expressive face.  He is so happy to be with us and his exuberance is contagious.  Every day is a new adventure and he brings us joy and happiness.

If your pet had a super power, what would it be? 
Liam’s super power is the ability to read people and understand them – deeply. Liam is bouncy with young adults but patient, calm, and loving with babies and the elderly.  Liam is highly socialized and even snuggles up to homeless people!  He knows when someone is struggling or needs a boost and he’s there for them. But Liam is also very adept at reading a dangerous situation, or person.  Liam almost never barks but if he does – there is a good reason and for this our neighborhood trusts Him – if he thinks something is sketchy, it probably is.

Why does your pet love Caring Hands Animal Hospital?  
Liam loves caring hands mostly because of the pretty ladies who work there.  Liam has a big soft spot for the ladies.  Liam also loves Caring Hands because the doctors and staff are just as happy to see him, as he is to see them.  They are patient and sympathetic and make going to the vet fun.  Liam even had a blast hanging out with all the staff after he was neutered – they treated him like one of the team.  Liam trusts the doctors at Caring Hands even when he is scared because through his super power, he knows that Dr. Planeta and the other staff members care about him and want the best for him.  Also, no one is scared of his size at the vet and they treat him like the big baby he is!
