Butler Stillinger
Senior Grief Therapy Dog

Butler is an AKC Registered Golden Retriever that was born in September 9, 2008 in Findley. Ohio. He was adopted by the Stillinger Family just four months after his birth and relocated to Greenfield. Much of his training was completed at First Friend's K-9 Training in Fisher's and he later received private lessons by a professional trainer for Canine Companions for Independence (C.C.I.). While he is not qualified he does have the same socialization skills that C.C.I. dogs have. At four months old, Butler was slowly introduced to the families at Stillinger Family Funeral Home. Butler was named after the English "family butler" that worked and served the family within the home, the funeral staff rapidly learned that Butler was a natural at his job and properly named. He is a warm, easy going and lovable extension of the funeral home staff that is gifted at disarming those that are emotionally tied down. At five months of age Butler was featured on the front page of the Daily Reporter for his unique position at the funeral home. He has visted Valle Vista Hospital with children as part of their therapy program and residents at local area extended care facilities. Butler is available to all our families during arrangement conferences, visitations and services. Many families ask for his presence at visitations and you will find him warmly welcoming guest in the foyer when asked. Butler is also featured on our website under staff and has his own email address which he answers with assistance from the staff.

While Stillinger Family Funeral Home is a pet friendly environment, we do ask all families their preference and abide by their wishes as to their desire to meet Butler.
