Benny, our bloodhound is a great emotional support dog. Whenever my husband has a ptsd nightmare Benny breathes in his face and calms him down. Works every time! Benny knows when my husband is sick or really needing him for comfort. We found a female bloodhound with a very similar disposition, who has become emotionally attached to my husband and I. We are going to breed them and give the puppies to search and rescue as well as veterans who need a loving support dog.
Why do you do it?
Benny is getting up in his years, and we can’t imagine life without him or at least a part of him. As far as donating puppies, we’re not breeding them for money. And many, many deserving veterans need emotional support dogs.
