Children's National Therapeutic Pup Murphy

Our current therapeutic pup at Children's National is Murphy, a Bichon Frise. He has received extensive training and has achieved his Canine Good Citizen award through the American Kennel Club. Other pluses are that he is hypoallergenic and does not shed. He is affectionate without being intrusive and meeting and petting him is often a way to ease into the therapeutic encounter.
