Therapy Dog Kevin The Greyt Proves Everyone Should Adopt A Retired Greyhound

The University of Central Oklahoma has its first on-campus therapy dog, Kevin the Greyt. A greyhound, Kevin retired from racing at five years old, and was adopted in November 2016 by Alex Russell, Assistant Director of Health Promotion at the university's Center for Counseling and Wellbeing. Russell realized he had the potential to provide a service through the center, and Kevin earned his therapy dog certification within six months.
