Shadow — Emerging Hero

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

On Mermorial Day 2 years ago Shadow and I were going for a walk (me in power chair), and when I was getting ready to make a right turn to go to our favorite spot, he ran from left to right pulling me and chair over on the ground. I than heard growling and looked up and there was a Coyote standing about 25 feet away, right where I would turned into and standing between him and I was Shadow and both of them growling, with me on the ground. The coyote started to come forward and this little 15lb Blue/Black Pomeranian stood his ground protecting me. This incident took place in Fort Myers, Florida. Shadow also knew when I was suffering from ptsd (dreams) and would jump on lap and lick my face
