CIS Abroad Response to COVID-19. Updates here.
That’s right, we’re a dog friendly office and our pooches have profiles! Meet our office dogs, both in person and remote.
King Charles Spaniel
I’m Luca and I belong to our Director of Programs, Joe Debiec. I have traveled to Canada, Florida, and all over the east coast. My owner Joe does a lot of boring human stuff—too much sitting if you ask me. I love being a CIS Abroad pup and finding all of the yummy crumbs around the office. One thing I do not like are cartoons or dressing up in fancy clothes. If you can’t find me, I am probably somewhere snuggling up nice and cozy.
Bernese Mountain Dog
Nothing beats a belly rub.
Hey everyone, I’m Copper. My owner, Jeff (Founder of CIS Abroad), brings me to work every couple of days when he knows no one will be home. I bark incessantly when I see him pick up his work bag so that he doesn’t forget to bring me! When I’m at the office, I sometimes wander around on the look out for a treat (lots of people in the office have them on their desk), food left at eye level and maybe a random pet from someone in the office. The only thing that I’m not a big fan of is the wood floors in the office. As a Bernese, I have very hairy feet and when I walk on those floors it’s like a human walking on ice – slippery! Hope to meet you someday (bring treats if you visit.)
Dudley here! I belong to Kris Holloway, President and Queen of CIS Abroad. I haven’t traveled much, but my mother is from Australia…does that count? My owner gives me the best belly scratches and feeds me meat-flavored dog biscuits. My favorite thing about being a CIS Abroad pup is the constant love. My pet peeve is that beeping sound that trucks make when they back up. All in all, I try to wag more and bark less.
Australian Cobber Dog
Remi belongs to our digital guru Neal and his family. “Cobber” means best mate in Australian.. “mate” means friend 🙂 and Remi is best friend to all in the office. Remi is in training to be a school therapy dog so he always has lots of love to give.
You are looking at me so I know that means you want to play! When I’m not doing important things like training my family how to give me treats, or chasing squirrels, playing is pretty much all I do. Nick B is my owner, he is still a work in progress, but he is getting better at giving treats when I ask him to. Let’s play.
Eat well and try local food when you travel!
Sawasdee, My name is Boba, I am David’s best friend, he is the Country Director in Thailand he makes sure that CIS Abroad students in Thailand are happy and healthy, like me! We live in Bangkok and travel a lot around Thailand to blue beaches, cool cafes (they bring me treats), beautiful mountains, and repeat! We just love it here! I am good at snoring and packing, I never forget to sneak myself and my toys in Davids’ suitcase when he packs, I just want to make sure that he doesn’t forget me. For me nothing beats fresh mangos under a nice tree by the beach, and that’s how we do it here all year round! Hope to see you all in Thailand.
Always be up for a #Nedventure!
Also known by his aliases Little Ned, Nedly, and Little Prince, Ned has taken over the home Jenn Engel, CIS Abroad’s VP of Academic Affairs. Ned was rescued from a bad situation by animal control before making his way to the Engel home and the CIS Abroad Chicago office. Generally considered a reliable worker, having won the Chicago office’s Employee of the Month award twice, on occasion he has been known to nap while on the job. He’s a complex little fellow who enjoys long hikes in the woods, watching football on TV, belly scratches, bringing home “treasures” found on his walks around the neighborhood, and using his big, brown puppy eyes to convince any human in the vicinity to give him treats (favorites include meat jerky, and cheese). Known associates: Ned is often seen playing with a black lab named Tootie (AKA Toots McGoots) and the yellow lab named Petunia (AKA Tuna) who lives next door.
