One Loudon County church unleashes new Comfort Dog

Posted: Updated:
(WBIR) One Loudon County church is unleashing a new ministry.

Churchgoers came in on Sunday to meet their newest member, Jewel the comfort dog.

"Our ministry is basically a ministry of presence. So we basically show up and shut up and let the dog do the work," said Richard Martin, Director of Comfort Dog Ministries.

Jewel, a 14-month old retriever, is part of this ministry. She is a trained service dog. When her vest is on, she is calm, and ready to serve so she doesn't startle anyone.
