Official Air Ambassadors - a different breed
Working dogs are nothing new but we've never met one that did this job, until now.
Sadie is an Official Air Ambassador.
Sadie started out as a "Lobby Dog" at the Innisfree Jet Center. But once she got used to the sound of planes, she wanted to accompany her owner Raina Melville as she greeted guests.
Innifree's General Manager Carl Braddock says he was amazed at Sadie's instant impact.
"The pilots actually just ignored their passengers and got off and started taking pictures with their phones. I thought, we are on to something here."
Braddock says Sadie's not just another fuzzy face. She brings real value and comfort.
"We actually get a lot of medical flights in here. I've seen miracles. Her, the reaction from the passengers on a medical flight with Sadie and now when medical flights are coming in the pilots will radio ahead and make sure the dogs gonna be waiting on them."
Raina works five days a week, but sometimes Sadie puts in seven. Raina will drop her off, especially if some of Sadie's favorite passengers are flying in.
Braddock says a Sadie-less entrance would prove a huge disappointment for many regulars.
