(Yamhill County District Attorney)  Beginning last week, the Yamhill County District Attorneys Office started using a facility dog to aid victims and witnesses of crime in reducing their stress and anxiety as they work through the criminal justice system. (Click here for News-Register story.)

Marybeth is a two year old Yellow Labrador, Golden Retriever mix, professionally trained by Canine Companions for Independence. Although she received the same degree of training t o work as a service dog, she was placed with the Yamhill County District Attorneys Office as a facility dog primarily because her extremely calm temperament enables her to provide emotional comfort to strangers in a high stress environment.
