NY State Courthouse Assistance Dog Makes National Headlines

On Tuesday, August 9, 2011 Rosie, our courthouse dog, made her second appearance on national television! 

This time NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams told the story of how Rosie is the first Assistance Dog in NY that has been allowed to sit in the witness stand by assisting young victims and giving them the courage that they need to testify in court against the people that have hurt them. 

See ECAD’s website for press coverage.
