Sierra The Talking Dog: A Cancer Patient’s Best Friend

Pet Therapy dog, Sierra, and her owners Dave and Dobie Marowski, volunteer at Roswell Park twice a month to visit with patients and families.

It’s their way of giving back after Dobie’s bout with breast cancer four years ago. As a former Roswell Park patient, Dobie understands first-hand how important companionship is. Sierra brought Dobie strength during chemotherapy and was by her side the entire time.

Now cancer-free, Dobie wants to share Sierra with other patients who need a little pick-me-up during treatment.

Sierra brings a smile to everyone’s face, but this 7-year-old beagle has more to offer than snuggles and wet kisses. She can talk! Watch the video above to see Sierra in action.
