We would like to introduce the newest addition to The Rescue for PTSD family, DAISY!! She is our next service dog in-training and is as sweet as she is cute! She was found as a stray with a litter of puppies last summer and we are so happy we were able to adopt her and help her fulfill her life’s purpose as a service partner for one of our Veterans! She was a superstar today in her first agility and obedience classes. Please stay tuned as we will be posting more about her!
We are thrilled to share that Honor is going to be paired with her Veteran partner the end of March! We had 17 Veterans from the Lone Survivor Foundation apply for Honor and could not be more pleased that she is going home with Kurt! He is coming down to Houston from North Carolina for 4 days of transition training and will also work with Honor to be certified as a therapy team! We can’t wait to follow their adventures. Stay tuned for pictures of their meeting and transition week-end! We will miss her very much but she has an important job to do and we have more pups to train to follow in her amazing footsteps for waiting Veterans!
We had an amazing first Group Lesson of 2021 last Saturday, thanks so much to our trainer Sam with Working Paw K9 Training! We welcomed quite a few new members and saw impressive improvement from our regular Veterans & their pups! We have a few teams getting ready for their Canine Good Citizen Test and Public Access Tests in the coming months, so stay tuned for updates on graduations!! We are happy to welcome Earl & Jazzy and Eric & Prescott, and Harold is adopting our Apollo and will be working towards being a service team via Group lessons. Our newest girl Daisy met her Veteran Jerry, who will be working with her at Group lessons while she is with us in full training. We would like to thank the students with Paws for Purpose for their support and coming to all our lessons to help train our dogs! They better watch out or they will become assistant trainers soon!!! We hope everyone stays safe and healthy, and look forward to more updates as we are off to a very busy start!
