Erma is a seven year old German Shorthaired Pointer. This breed has a reputation for being very intelligent, hardworking, loyal and big lap dogs! Erma is a certified therapy dog through Allied Therapy Dogs since 2012. She is also registered with R.E,A.D.ing (Reading Education Assistance Dog) Therapy Dogs. Most of the time Erma acts like she is not a dog and likes to sit in the driver seat of the car or in one of the dining room chairs like the rest of us. She is sweet, lovable and tolerant of small children who love to pet her and snuggle on her dog bed. But squirrels and chipmunks beware! Erma loves to run in the woods and swim by the lake trying to catch little fish. She is a very special dog and we love her very much.
