Fond du Lac, Wis. - A Florida girl who was hurt in the Wisconsin Dells, will soon have a new companion.
The English olden retriever puppy named Charlie is being trained in Fond du Lac, to be a therapy dog for 15-year-old Teagan Marti. Teagan suffered serious brain and spine injuries when she fell off a ride in 2010.
The dog is named Charlie, after actor Charlie Sheen, who helped pay for it. Once she's fully trained, Charlie will be able to come over to a light switch and flip it on and off for Teagan, among other things.
