Hello everyone! My name is Gracie. I am a purebred Golden Retriever, and I love everyone (like most Goldens). I love to give anyone cuddles and hugs as I am a huge baby. My favourite pastimes are laying around, eating and going on slow walks with my mom.

I was meant to be a Therapy Dog since I am such a good listener – I will just lie around and listen to you without a word of judgment! I am at my happiest just curled up near you or cuddling with you. I aim to please though, so when my mom wants me to learn new tricks I can pick up on them very easily! I’ll do anything as long as there are treats involved…

Please come out and see me at the Health and Counselling clinic – come anytime just for fun, or if you need to pay the clinic a visit anyway, I will be there on most Mondays!

Having a ruff day? Gracie recommends:

Peer Support – Carleton has a variety of programs to help you navigate university, make social connections and improve your well-being.
