Azor was born into a large polish family on December 5th, 2003. His name is a very common dog name in Poland, similar to “Fido” or “Rover”. His mother had nine pups, so I guess she ran out of original names!
A poster dog for mutts and mongrels everywhere, Azor looks like “Joe-average” dog, but he is very special. He loves the fireplace and hates stepping in puddles. He loves rolling on the snow and the grass. Ok, he just loves rolling.
He has been visiting children at a daycare centre since he was a puppy. Children as young as 18 months love to visit with him at the daycare. The kindergarten children say he is a “circus” dog because he does so many tricks. He was organically groomed for his service work even before anyone knew he would join OTD.
In January 2009 Azor began his official therapy work with OTD at Colonel By Retirement Residence, visiting seniors. He visits once a week in the lounge on the second floor and the lobby as well as trolling the rooms for anyone who would like a furry visitor.
Because of his travel sickness, Azor was unable to attend obedience classes. As a result he was home-schooled. Fortunately, he has been an exemplary student and excels at everything he puts his paw to.
Azor aspires toward a career in dishwashing or home security. In his spare time he enjoys singing, playing piano and watching TV. His favourite shows include The Dog Whisperer and anything on National Geographic channel. Sadly, he is a closet couch potato.
