Lattimore — Emerging Hero

Charity Partner: Pets for Patriots
Location: Rochester, New York

Lattimore alerts me if something is going on with me medically, he is my emotional support dog. I have had Lattimore since he was a puppy and he’s 9 years old and acts like a 1 year old. He is an American Staffordshire Terrier. One day I was having chest pains and he came to me and laid his head on my chest, and the pain was gone. I have trained him myself using force-free methods, Lattimore responds to sign language and whenever I don’t feel well he will always come to me to console me and the best part is I feel much better. He likes to greet people and likes kids.
