Loki (A.K.A. Mr Wiggles) our other autism specialist, is a 7 year old German Boxer who joined Spectrum as a service/therapy dog in January of 2019. Loki has been a therapy dog for 7 years and has extensive experience in working with kids, teens, and young adults on the autism spectrum. In addition, he is gifted at helping children calm down when they are anxious or angry. Loki is Spectrum's greeter and truly enjoys welcoming people to our Federal Way and Seattle locations by sometimes giving them kisses to say hello. Loki recognizes that not everyone likes dogs and is happy to spend time in the back office during those occasions. Loki enjoys playing tug of war, chewing on squeaky toys, running, playing with plastic water bottles, and getting tennis balls stuck underneath couches. In addition, he can be found in his free time going for long walks with his partner in crime Carly Pascoe.
