Therapy dog gets helping paw after tearing ACL

KENMORE, N.Y. (WIVB) — A beloved therapy dog actively involved in Kenmore Mercy Hospital’s pet therapy program recently needed a helping hand — or paw — from the medical staff there.

After tearing her ACL, Sydney — an active Yorkie — needed some bed rest. Not wanting to slouch on the patients who need her most, orthopedic nurses in the hospital found the volunteer a small baby stroller to help her get around.

Officials say Sydney is on the mend and will continue visiting patients with her handler. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
