A new team of volunteers is hounding travelers at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport. A group of eight dogs and their handlers are on patrol, ready to be petted and cuddled by travelers.
These dogs aren’t here for security reasons, they’re here to help travelers relax.
A Labradoodle named Tucker belongs to Tami Piper. She keeps him on a leash at one end of the airport lobby. A group of eight dogs and their handlers are wearing vests that say ‘pet me.’
Tucker gets the attention of a few people walking by who aren’t rushing to catch a flight.
