MANATEE COUNTY- Manatee County Emergency Service’s furry new team member is helping care for those responsible for protecting all of Manatee County, and their hoping their new service dog could be a model for the state.

“He walks through a room and everyone just lights up,” EMS Chief James Crutchfield said. “Everyone’s happy to see him, and it’s truly remarkable, people open up, people smile.”

Rucker is a two year old service dog trained to help first responders deal with the stress of the job.

Would be great if people would understand the difference between service animals and therapy animals.
