Szva White

Szva (pronounced “Zeeva”) and her proud owner Alan White have been members of Bright & Beautiful Therapy Dogs since 2019. Szva is currently a nominee for the American Humane 2020 Hero Dog Awards in the Therapy category to honor her for all she does to provide comfort to many and make the lives of others better.

In October 2018, Szva started working as a Therapy Dog at the Doris Miller Dept. of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Waco, TX. Over the next year, Szva made over 210 trips/visits to the VA Medical Center to visit Hospice Care Veterans and center Outpatients. For this, she received her American Kennel Club (AKC) Therapy Dog Excellent title and is actively working toward her AKC Therapy Dog Distinguished title, which requires 400 visits.

In 2020, Szva began providing services to the families with loved ones in the Community Healthcare of Texas – Providence Hospice unit in Waco. She also provides services “On Call” as requested.

Szva provides comfort to many, including to her owner Alan. To learn more about Szva’s story and Alan White, click here for an article from the Waco Tribune.
