Foster Dickson

This lionhearted Lhasa has the responsibility to welcome clients and visitors, sit in on meetings, and give the staff the occasional needed break for that parking lot walk.

Foster had a hard start in life, but was rescued at the age of ten months old and given a warm loving home, socialization and etiquette training. He donates his time at one of Placerville’s assisted living facilities, sharing himself with the residents and bringing smiles to so many faces. His warm and loyal personality makes him a perfect addition to the dog friendly office of Dickson Financial Advisors.
