Helper Hounds: Penny Helps Portia Face Her Fears

by Caryn Rivadeneira

Portia has overcome a lot in life. Born with Down syndrome, Portia has been through many surgeries, lots of doctor’s appointments, and strange looks from people who want to limit what she can do. Portia knows she can do anything—including getting over her fear of dogs. But when Penny shows up at Portia’s house, she isn’t so sure. After all, Penny is a pit bull—the scariest dog of all, right? Good thing Penny has a few tricks of her own to win Portia’s trust.
