Enzo is an 8-year-old Sharpei-Lab cross who absolutely loves being around kids - big and little! He is a rescue dog who has a very gentle and calm personality, and prefers interacting with people over other dogs. Enzo creates a calm and engaging atmosphere at the clinic and helps the team work with and motivate the kids, as well as providing emotional support to everyone who walks through the door.
Enzo is a pretty active dog and his favourite things are long walks, getting treats, naps, trying to chase squirrels, and of course - getting as much attention as he can!
