Pete was joined on Instagram live by Petfix member Ciara last night with a very special story.

Last August, Ciara’s family, specifically her son Joshua was delighted to bring Paulie the Goldendoodle into their home as a 12-week old puppy. Paulie was not just any puppy, but a very special dog that was going to be trained to be Joshua’s service dog.

Ciara joined Pete on Instagram Live to explain how the last few months have been, with monthly training sessions, getting to know Paulie and watching the relationship blossom between Paulie and the entire family.
