Jack Russell Terrier Spreads Holiday Cheer at California Hospital
As the head of MLE Merchandising Signs & Solutions Inc., Mike Loftus is responsible for making the final decisions that will lead to the company’s success. When he is not working at MLE, Mike Loftus enjoys time at home with his family and dogs, one of which is a Jack Russell Terrier.
During the 2016 holidays, a 10-year-old Jack Russell Terrier named Sancho spread some holiday cheer at the San Gabriel Valley Medical Center in California. Sancho, whose owner brings him each week to the hospital to entertain the patients, rode around in a toy Volkswagen bus all over the medical institution, dressed in a Christmas outfit. The hospital has a pet therapy program to help patients with anxiety.
Photos of Sancho during his run on his VW bus immediately went viral. In a week’s time, the images had netted more than 8,000 retweets and more than 11,000 likes on social media.
