Wynn is a sweet one-year-old dog who currently lives with her puppy handler, Susan Ryan. When she reaches the right age, she will undergo training with Canine Companions for Independence. There, Wynn will learn to become an assistance dog for persons with disabilities. Until then, Wynn is learning basic skills and socializing with the help of Susan. Recently, she also inadvertently started doing a critical job.
Susan knew that Wynn was a special dog the moment they met. Wynn is a very sweet and playful pup who never backs down on any challenges. Susan owns two Labs, and Wynn would always make surprise attacks on them. However, once she wears her vest, her focus is on business.

Susan works at Rose Medical Center in Denver, Colorado, as an emergency physician. Sometimes, Susan brings Wynn at work to help in the pup’s training and socialization. This is something that Wynn absolutely loves. However, when the coronavirus started to hit the U.S., the sweet pooch made it clear that she will also be there to help.
Since the start of the pandemic, everyone at the hospital has been working around the clock. With their current situation, no doubt, having some sort of support would go a long way. Thankfully, Wynn is there to act as a therapy dog to those who could use a moment to destress in the middle of all the chaos.
Among these hardworking staff is Susan. So, even if she gets to bond with Wynn at home, the pup also comforts Susan for a few minutes at work. One time, the two of them sat on the hospital floor. Wynn leaned on Susan as if she was thanking her foster mom for taking care of her and all the other patients.
Eventually, Wynn will become someone’s assistance dog. However, for now, she will continue to support everyone at the hospital, including her mom. Susan said that whenever she walks into a shift, all the staff light up, not because of her but because of Wynn.
