Office Mascot and Love-Monger
Pan, AKA “Pete” or “PP”, is our most popular team member and,
undoubtedly, the gentlest canine in the history of the universe. He
has been with Vision Tech since May 2018. He gets along exceptionally
well with each team member and continues to love each of them
unconditionally, even on their worst days.
Pete had a rough start at life. He was brought to the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA in January 2018 at 8 months of age. It was clear he had been neglected his whole life. He was severely underweight with mange covering most of his body. Pete was bald after his infection cleared and scabs covered his face, neck, back and rear. He knew the command “sit” but couldn’t do it because his bottom was covered in sores. He was house trained but hated to walk on grass and cold pavement because the pads on his feet were raw. He watched in confusion when the other dogs would run and play, and it was over a month before he even let out a bark. Dr. Davis learned of Pete through his loving foster family who helped him grow furrier, healthier and stronger every day!
In March of 2018, Dr. Davis welcomed Pete as part of her own family (and work family). Somehow, despite his background, this sweet pup has always trusted and loved humans. Pete enjoys sitting next to floor heaters and fireplaces, basking in the warm sunshine, riding shotgun in the car, and licking smelly feet whenever possible. His favorite hobbies include sleeping and receiving hind leg rubs, preferably at the same time.
At the office, Pete can be found relaxing in Dr. Davis’s personal office, lying next to Sherry’s desk (note: Dr. Davis and Sherry are the only ones with floor heaters year round), and/or eating any and all human food given to him in the staff break room (minus carrots… he’s not fond of carrots). He does not roam the clinic areas of the office but always hopes patients seek him out to give him extra love and attention.
