New York City DA Hires Bronksey The Comfort Dog

6 Jun

This is a new one for me! Dogs being used in the courtroom? I’ve read multiple stories that talk about the ability of animals to calm people and how just touching animals can lower blood pressure. Animals have this calming ability that is being discovered and utitlized to help soldiers suffering with PTSD, old folks who live in homes, those healing from surgery and now, in courtrooms! Bronksey is brought into the courtroom to help calm those dealing with abuse cases. The case mentioned in the article is of a little boy who had to testify that was being abused by a relative. By having Bronksey in the courtroom, he remained calm and was able to feel confident in testifying. The cost of these dogs are high, but look at the possibilities!
