My name is Shoeshine with my best buddy Phoenix!

Shoeshine helps autisic child

My grandson has autism & I thought maybe a puppy would help him. I got her in January on a Saturday and he went to school that following Monday & has had great days ever since. They are best buddies as you can see! He named her Shoeshine cause he loved the movie "Under Dog".
