PRUSIK
Pawlympics Recruiter

Prusik is a young little knot who enjoys romping with her playmates (dogs or kiddos) and running through the woods. Though she enjoys a good cuddle or game of fetch, she also enjoys her independence, sometimes way away from her moms. Prusik is known to tear down a ski slope or just hang out at a climbing crag. Though she is growing and learning she can still be a very knotty dog at times.

LUCY
Marine Barkologist

Lucy graces the presence of the Kids RehabGym when her adult siblings are too busy to stop in and visit. Lucy loves rolling in the snow and finding her ball, but not bringing it back. Lucy has not yet learned to swim but loves to splash in the shallows. Lucy most favorite activity is a calm afternoon at home with her mom, Julie.
