MSD Gets Therapy Dog To Help Students, Staff Heal

Months after the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, students and staff are getting the chance to find some comfort in a four-legged friend.

A Stoneman Douglas librarian. Diana Haneski, who helped save lives during the shooting in February was given a therapy dog to help students heal.

Individuals have been campaigning to get two therapy dogs for the school. The bernedoodle puppy, River, met Haneski for the first time Thursday in Coral Springs. 

"River's gonna help in the future with a lot of struggles and trouble, and I'm trying to get myself ready to go back, so this is definitely going to help me," Haneski said, according to a report by NBC 6.

River will live with and go to work with Haneski. She'll be receiving free dog training to help the MSD community alleviate the painful memories and emotions from that day in February.
