ORLANDO, Fla. –
There is a new student enrolled at the University of Central Florida this semester. She might be young and even a bit furry, but that isn’t stopping the pup from working toward her own very special degree.
The puppy, 5-month-old Robin, is the first assistance dog in training living on the UCF campus. It’s all part of a new partnership UCF has with Canine Companions for Independence.
Robin’s roommate and student trainer is sophomore Morgan Bell, who will volunteer her time over the next year training Robin on over 30 commands and basic obedient skills, including walking on a leash and behaving in public.Bell explained the first time she saw Robin.
“She was just this sleepy little nugget,” Bell said. “Like, she was in her kennel and all curled up. It was love at first sight.”
Bell rattled off the commands Robin knows?.
“So far she knows her name, down, sit, dress, kennel,” Bell said.
The dynamic duo will be seen around campus as Robin learns to socialize in different environments. It can include meeting strangers, attending classes and other social situations, giving her the opportunity to experience the real world around her.
“We raise assistant dogs to individuals with developmental disabilities or other injuries,” said LeAnn Sieffereman, Canine Companion’s Puppy Program manager.
So the duo will have to part ways eventually, as Robin will move on to care and support someone in need.
?”Just thinking she is going to go and help someone else is, she’s given me, and I want her to give that to someone, too,” Bell said.
Robin will stay at UCF for another year before she graduates to her master’s degree and then hopefully finds a match.
Hottest living thing on campus. Fucking wish i was still at UCF for this so bad. Every night I scroll through UCF’s yeti account and its loaded with just the most college of times ever with chicks smoking blunts partying their face off rolling molly and snorting coke just to make it to their 9 am psychology test. Fucking awesome. Chicks playing just a little bit hard to get whipping their titties out every night rolling face at Library. Yea i get Robin the pup might be a girl but that doesn’t matter because chicks FLOCK towards little puppies regardless. Any fellas out there pursuing any degree aside from this “Canine Companions For Independence” should opt out and switch to that asap to try to get dibs on Robin next year when she’s looking for a new roommate. Probably can argue to get a larger room at Towers and put out the bat signal that you’re the new room mate. Instant pussy magnet. Fuck im jealous. Next year when Robins a year old, she’ll probably have a yeti account with her partying with her bitches, tits out throwing back drinks partying on a whole new level. Fuck i miss it.
