My “Goober” now deceased Shih Tzu was, non-military support, service dog for my deceased wife and his services were helpful to me in taking care of my wife. He supported her by being her constant companion alerting me to when she was moving around the house alone and getting up in the morning or from a nap so that I could assist her as she would most likely fall. He was trained to voice commands for walking and moving about the house. He also served as a VA Hospital Service dog visiting patients, I could leave him alone with patients so that they could feel that he was theirs for a few minutes. He was a loving piece of God. The picture is of Goober watching over my deceased Wife.
Why do you do it?
To bring sunshine in the lives of anyone he met.
