        Santiago and Morris: Therapy Dog and Trainer

        Santiago Lopez is a young man who needed help. In this video segment from Wild TV, Santiago admits he was beginning to hang out with the wrong people and was getting into trouble in school. His family consistently urged him to change and “to do the right thing." In order to steer his life in a meaningful direction, Santiago became involved in a program called Green Chimmenys where he had the opportunity to help himself by learning how to train therapy dogs. Santiago trained Morris, a golden retriever, who in turn helped Linda Goldberg, a woman with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, deal with her extreme physical pain.
