Claude is the Medina County Prosecutor’s Office therapy dog, and the newest member of the Victim/Witness Division. He is a 4-year-old boxer/bulldog mix who was rescued by his current family at 8 weeks old. Claude was specially trained by the team at Lorenzo’s Dog Training, who graciously donated their time over the course of two and a half years. Claude is now certified with Therapy Dogs International.
For many victims, the criminal justice process can be extremely stressful, scary and unknown. Claude is at the office every day, and does his best to help provide comfort to both adult and child victims going through this process. He attends victims' trial preparation meetings with prosecutors, is present with victims before and after testifying at trial, and for any other reason that one may come into our office. Claude is extremely sweet and loving, and is happy to be part of the team! His importance in our office becomes more evident with each victim he meets.
Be on the lookout for Claude at community events and come say hello if you see him! Donations for basic needs, grooming and veterinary care for Claude are always accepted. Please contact Rachel Boehm, Claude’s handler, with our Victim/Witness Division if you would like to donate at (330)-764-8392.
