Gloria Atwater Posted December 17, 2012 Report Share Posted December 17, 2012 Greetings all ~ If this isn't posted in the right place, please forgive me, because I'm asking a dog question, though not specifically a border collie question. I have a friend - more rightly a friendly acquaintance - who approached me last night about service dogs. Specifically, where and how she could find a dog for herself. This lady is both a cancer survivor AND a survivor of an attempted murder. She finds it very hard to go out in public places or be in groups of people - I'm sure many of you have heard similar tales. She has been clinically diagnosed with PTSD and she does the best she can to cope, undoubtedly has undergone therapy and/or medication, but ... she wants more. She wants to LIVE! So, she asked me if I would help find out where and how she could inquire about getting a service dog. She feels that the warmth and companionship of a trained service dog would do wonders to help her begin to reclaim the normal aspects of life. Can anyone help with this? I have no more idea than she does where one would even begin to look or ask about getting a service dog. She lives in Hemet, California. Thank you in advance! I really hope folks here can help me help this lovely, wounded lady. ~ Gloria Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
