Hello, my name is Hercules.  I am a 6 month old Mini Australian Shepherd and I was born with a cleft palate which makes things like drinking and eating quite difficult.  But I am adapting to it.  I am now the lone survivor of my family.  I was the only pup in the litter, and my mom Belle and father Doc passed shortly after my birth.  It was very hard for me at first but I played with my aunt and my other friends and I slowly dealt with it.  I have accepted my family’s fate and I’m now getting on my own track as a therapy dog because there is no better thing than to comfort someone when you need the comfort as well.
