About Dora

Dora is an 18-month-old Golden Retriever/Yellow Labrador Retriever cross who was born in Morristown, New Jersey on March 4, 2015. Her nickname is “Dora the Explorer” because she is so interested in going to new places, meeting new people, and learning about the world around her. Dora has very expressive eyes, and she likes to lie on her back and have her belly rubbed. She also likes her ears rubbed.

Dora graduated from guide dog school at the top of her class and has been a great student. She loves people and other animals, particularly dogs and cats. As she gets older, Dora will have the chance to travel across the United States and around the world with Dr. Cimini, and she hopes to have the opportunity to go to the White House and meet the President someday.

Dora is a very gentle, friendly dog who is always ready to lend a listening ear to people who would like support. She loves to be petted and to give and receive a hug and a smile.

Approach to Wellness

Dora enjoys traveling, walking, and playing with her bone and stuffed squeaky toys. She has bones and toys available in Dr. Cimini’s office to help her chill out and have a little fun. She also has a dog bed in Dr. Cimini’s office so that she can take a nap during long meetings.
