Tell us how your dog is helping you continue #StillServing in your community.
Zeus, my German Shepherd has been with me for 3 years in October. I received him and handlers training from a local nonprofit called Operation Rambo from grants pass Oregon. He has helped me reintegrate into society allowing me to confidently leave my home because of my PTSD. I felt so grateful to have him, I volunteered to help Operation Rambo train other dogs & potential veteran handlers interested in having a service animal. I’ve been a certified AKC handler trainer for almost a year.
Why do you do it?
The benefit of having Zeus had allowed me to live a life I didn’t know I could live. I wanted to “pay it forward” & show other veterans having a service animal is feasible.
