In January of 2016, I went to go get dog food for my adult dog, and there was a rescue group at the pet store. They had a ton of cute puppies available for adoption. I saw an adorable little brindle puppy. He was 6 weeks old and had just weaned from his mama. I knew I couldn’t handle another dog, but he was so adorable so I agreed to foster him and if it worked with my current dog, I would consider keeping him. Well if all went downhill from there. I went home with a 6 week old puppy and everything I needed for a puppy.... and forgot the dog food. I focused on his training from day one with the intention of him being a service dog. He is trained for seizure alert and recovery and balance and mobility. He is the best dog I’ve ever had. And he has saved my life three times! I give him a purpose and in exchange he gives me assistance! He is my hero dog!
