She died one and a half years ago she was almost 9 when we bought her I have her son and granddaughter they are both PTSD dogs and medical alert dogs we’re planning to buy another import female that is titled to become my third service dog each dogworks differently and for me, three or four dogs make a whole team. thank you for your article and taking your time to sit down with bats and learn how wonderful these dogs are and that pills are not always the answer it’s been 9 years since my son was killed I would have never survived without the dogs
