My name is Emily and my son Sebastian and I have a third party service dog named Maddie.
She is approximately 8 years old and she was a rescue from a high kill shelter. The organization that we got her from in Atlanta takes rescues and then trains them for service. We were placed with Maddie in late 2012. She looks to be part lab and part boxer. She really is the sweetest girl on earth, very loving and VERY attentive. She's perfectly content staying home or going out to a restaurant. She eats blue buffalo brand food and self regulates her water so she doesn't go in the house.
On she suffered a stroke that left her with a perma head tilt. Her doc put her under the Vestibular disease bucket because all her labs came back 100% clear and healthy. She has recovered great just her head and her balance is off kilter. I am trying to find an organization that would adopt her from us (she has all her certifications and diplomas) for someone who is looking for a therapy dog or an emotional support dog. When we were placed with Maddie, the other option for her was for a Veteran to adopt her because she is such a friendly girl and loves to communicate which comes in handy during periods of PTSD. That being said, I had to retire her as my son's service dog because she just couldn't keep up with the work and my heart just hurt trying to make her.
She's been spayed and is currently due for her Rabies shot, which I'm waiting to give her until March due to the stroke. This stroke was the first ever health issue she ever had. She's never been sick, she has been up to date on her flea medication, heart worm medication, and visits. She's lost some weight in the time recovering from the stroke so I'm trying to slowly get her back up there. I can of course have her with me until someone is found for her that is a great fit, but she's such a great dog I'm sure that won't take too long.
