About Luna

​The name and logo for CreScent Service Dogs Inc. is inspired by a very special little dog. Without Luna, a miniature Alaskan Klee Kai with a big heart, none of this would have been possible. In addition to being task trained for gluten detection, Luna also alerts to Christina's migraines, often hours before they strike.

 

Luna is confident, observant, and a little social butterfly who greets everyone she meets with a smile and happy tap-dancy feet. She is an amazing breed ambassador for the Alaskan Klee Kai, a breed not typically known for being outgoing and confident. She has an amazing work ethic and she loves her "jobs" - which she performs with enthusiasm. Luna is truly a once in a lifetime dog, soulful, empathetic, eager to learn, and happy to go on any new adventure. Everyone should be so lucky and blessed as to experience the deep bond and trusting relationship from a heart-dog like Luna.
