All About Me….


Hanging out with my best friend, Blake, another Courthouse Dog.

Hi, I’m Russell!  I am a 5 year old Golden Retriever who loves swimming, chasing lizards, long afternoon naps, and most importantly, helping children.  I was trained to be a Courthouse Dog through the Assistance Dogs of the West and have been working at Southern Arizona Children’s Advocacy Center for the past four years.  I take my job very seriously, which entails assisting crime victims, witnesses, and others during stressful stages of legal proceedings.  I provide support to kids during forensic interviews and court hearings by offering a paw to hold and wet nose kisses when needed.
