Say Happy Birthday to Izzy! One of Memphis' Favorite Fire Dogs

Today, February 13, Izzy turned 8 years old! She has been with us at the museum for 6 years now, but her life wasn't always so great. At just 10 weeks old she was on the streets of Fort Hood, Texas before being rescued. Then, after 2 years of training and volunteer work she became a certified Fire and Therapy Dog! With the help of her trainer and caretaker, Patricia Belt, Izzy has made numerous public appearances and has brightened the lives of many kids by attending their birthday parties here at the museum.
