Staff Member Spotlight: Gus the Grief Therapy Dog July 15, 2020

Gus the therapy dog

As part of our continuing efforts to introduce you to our staff of caring professionals, we will occasionally feature a Staff Member Spotlight, highlighting one of our team members. Here, we would like to introduce you to Gus. Gus is one of the newest members of the Radel family and was born September 25, 2015 in Crittenden, Kentucky. Gus was adopted by our family when he was seven weeks old and moved to the Cincinnati area. He is an AKC registered German Shepard and proudly serves as our grief therapy dog.

Gus began his training to be a therapy dog at just four months old with American Success-Dog Training Academy. He graduated from training in January 2017 and is a certified service dog/grief therapy dog. Gus is a natural, a caring and affectionate addition to Fares J. Radel Funeral Home’s staff. He is able to sense people who are in need of emotional support. He enjoys coming in to work and greeting those who need his comfort most.

When Gus is not at work, he enjoys playing with his sister, Charlie the Beagle and traveling to Michigan with the family. He also loves to visit with sick children and visit people in nursing homes and hospice. His favorite activity, however, is comforting those in need.

Gus is a terrific resource and is available to attend funeral services at your request. Please feel free to contact us to learn more about Gus and his availability.

Gus is another way our family continues to find new ways to comfort and serve grieving families in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area. From our in-home consultations and funeral pre-planning services to customized, non-traditional funeral services, we are here to answer your questions and provide assistance. If you are in current need or are considering starting the pre-planning process, our family would be honored to serve you. Contact us today.
