Azha — Therapy

Location: Aloha, Oregon

Azha is my 2 year old GSD, she is a Therapy dog, as well as a rescue. I was diagnosed with PTSD a few years ago, as well as Depression, anxiety, and suicidal tendencies. I recently got Azha, just over a month ago, since then she has helped me in some of my darkest times, she keeps me alert when my mind wants to shut down and shatter, she helps me with day to say life, as well as makes me smile. A few weeks ago my PTSD kicked in full force, and my mind started wandering to suicide, when this happens I tend to black out, and movements become robotic like, anyways, she noticed this, and laid her head and her paws on me, snapping me back to reality, and refocusing my mind. She has helped me a few times since then, if it weren’t for her, I honestly don’t know what would’ve happened to me, everyday she saves my life.
