Meet Jacob, Our Therapy Dog
Jacob is Dr. Schantz’s fun-loving, German Shepherd-mix doggie. He visits the office occasionally when he is not volunteering as a Certified Therapy Dog with Fairfax Pets on Wheels.
Dr. Schantz adopted Jacob from the Richmond City Animal Shelter when she was attending dental school and the pair have been bringing smiles to people's faces ever since. Prior to adoption and working for Fairfax Pets on Wheels, Jacob volunteered his time at MCV Hospital’s children’s oncology ward.
When Jacob isn’t visiting the residents at Powhatan Nursing Home with Fairfax Pets on Wheels, he enjoys going to Eastern Market with his mom (Dr. Schantz), hiking around Roosevelt Island and visiting CNS Dental.
