LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Meet 3-year-old Esther Bean!

This loyal furry friend can be seen sniffing her way around Faith Lutheran's Middle School & High School campus in the west valley.

This therapy dog is there to provide comfort for staff and students as in-person classes started back last week.

She even made several appearances this past spring during online classes.

The school administration says because of the changes and uncertainty brought on by the pandemic Esther's role at the school is now more important than ever.
