Tort isn’t an attorney, but he is an important member of our staff. Our office dog, Tort, is a certified Therapy Dog available to assist our clients during office visits. Having a warm and friendly dog ready to lend a paw during the tough moments makes all the difference for some of our clients.
Tort is a standard poodle with brown phantom coloring. Standard poodles are hypoallergenic, meaning that even those with moderate dog allergies can interact with him without having an allergic reaction.
Tort’s human is attorney Valerie “Missy” Shands. When not working long days at the office, he enjoys playing with his friends at the dog park, long walks around the subdivision with his human, and dock diving and agility classes at No Leash Needed.
