Jetta Bug is a 4 year old Pitbull.
She was adopted when she was 6 months old, after being dumped over a fence for being a runt.
God's Dogs Rescue took her in and named her Ruby. As soon as she was ready for adoption we had to bring her into the family.
We fell in love with Jetta at first site.
We brought her home and re-named her Jetta Bug because well we are Volkswagen fans.
I knew after she was with us for only a few month I had to find a way to bring the love and joy she has to my clients.
Jetta Bug is great at helping people identifying things that maybe going on. During training we were told that Jetta Bug was a great Empath!
Jetta Loves being in session with clients, her toys and of course treats.

Jetta and Jennifer have been through extensive training through Texas State University's animal assistance counseling program.
Animal Assisted Counseling (AAC) is when a therapeutically trained animal is apart of your treatment plan.
There have been many studies that show Animals have many benefits to humans and the interactions.
AAC is a process in which a trained therapy animal works in partnership with a mental health practitioner to help clients resolve psychosocial difficulties and achieve growth using experiential and expressive techniques.
AAC is utilized in counseling when the animal is a part of working toward a client’s clinical goals. This can be achieved by involving the therapy animal in an intervention, such as the client teaching the therapy animal a new skill, or the therapy animal providing comfort and support when the client is sharing something personal or challenging.
