Faline

Faline

Door Dog

Faline is the Deep Relief mascot, front door greeter and all-around therapy dog.  Louisa and Jenny were driving down a South Austin road right as the construction was about to begin for the new Deep Relief storefront.  Faline was rolling down the road like a piece of tumbleweed, so we pulled over and she rolled over...

We thought we would foster her and find her a new home like so many other dogs in recent years. Faline turned out to be so very afraid of everyone except us that we couldn't imagine putting her through another traumatic transition.  AKA velcro dog, Faline has made vast improvements in trusting humans again, though she is still quite shy.

SPECIALTIES:

TESTIMONIAL

“My body is pushing 60 years old and I am still working it: running up to four miles, swimming, lifting weights, and finding my way onto the lake in my kayak, in between long days in front of a computer screen. None of this would be possible without the support of Deep Relief. I trust their team completely and count on them to keep this body going.”
