Brantley Dakota is a Golden Retriever who has been a therapy dog through the Alliance of Therapy Dogs since he was almost two. His middle name is Native American meaning everybody's friend and he fits right into that role. Brantley was originally chosen because of his goofy grin and tail that wags faster than a hummingbird's wings. He loves to visit schools and nursing homes. Brantley's favorite weekend activity is taking boat rides and despite being a Golden Retriever, he said swimming is for the birds. His favorite treat is peanut butter sandwiches and plays with his two younger sisters who are also Golden Retrievers who hope to be therapy dogs just like their brother one day.
