Residents of United Methodist Homes' Tunkhannock Campus recently welcomed 7-year-old therapy dog Jake and his handler Dave Overbeck to campus for Jake's 150th senior facility visit. Overbeck rescued Jake in 2005 from a golden retriever rescue group in North Carolina. After completing a wide variety of training courses, including obedience, Canine Good Citizen and therapy dog certification, the pair began making visits to senior facilities and hospitals in 2007. They typically make five visits per week, giving obedience demonstrations and interacting with residents and patients. Resident Lillian Davis watches as Jake and Overbeck do a demonstration during their visit.
