My name is Elroy, because my mom has “her boy Blue” and I am “his boy Elroy!” I am the younger brother of Blue, and I just had to become a Therapy Dog myself because of all of his stories from working with students and seeing how he jumps up and down when he gets to go to school! I wanted come see what it’s all about!

I cannot wait to show you some of my favorite tricks, and I am sure there is no trick in the book that I can’t learn so feel free to challenge me! If you like seeing me smile you should give me lots of bum scritches whenever you see me!

I know how happy all of the people make me, so I can’t wait to give back and help students with their mental health and stress! Come see if you can SPOT me on campus!

When I’m not working on campus, you can follow my adventures on my Instagram page @elroy_the_dalmatian
