Dr. Tami Pierce, right — along with vet students Jolene Conley, left, and Carol Lah, second from right — talks to Melanie Norris about Scooter, her four-month-old foster puppy. The wire-haired terrier was found abandoned by a roadside. After four weeks of class and training from Norris, Dr. Pierce said Scooter has been one of the program's biggest success stories, going from timid to playing confidently with bigger puppies, like Scout, a rambunctious black Lab mix.
