Helping Paws is a DA series about service, therapy and emotional support dogs in and around WVU. Join us each week as we explore these amazing dogs and the special training it takes to do their jobs. This project is made possible by a partnership with Hearts of Gold and sponsored by Cheat Lake Animal Hospital.
