Our Mascot


Seaver the Retriever was a pure-breed golden retriever, owned by Dr. Rick Rubinstein. Even when he grew up, he was always a puppy-at-heart. Despite originating from a long line of champion show dogs, Seaver decided to skip show business and settle down as a family dog and beloved hospital mascot.

Since even before Park Avenue Animal Hospital opened, Seaver was its cheerful, welcoming face. His adventures were immortalized (and somewhat embellished) in the Seaver comic strips that appear every week in the Apopka Chief, and on this website.

Before his passing, he could frequently be seen hanging out at the hospital, eager for toys, treats and any attention. His loyalty, infectious smile and constantly wagging tail never failed to brighten someone’s day. Seaver was a good boy and lives on in our hearts.
