They rescued Ralf from Tasmania and welcomed him into their family home in Melbourne.Ralf was the recipient of daily cuddles from Caroline's four children who would spend hours playing with him. He became an important part of their daily walk to school and a celebrity at the school gates where children would stop and pat the friendly visitor.One day Caroline and her family took Ralf to compete at the Royal Melbourne Show. It was here that his potential as a therapy dog was first spotted.Shortly afterwards Ralf began working at Trinity Manor nursing home followed by The Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne where he became an instant hit with children and their families.
